ever disliked a horse?

Well I work at stables right and theres this horse. Prettiest thing youll ever see but I really don't get along with him :P

He belongs to a 12 year old girl and he is 4 himself. So don't get me wrong because he probably just needs some understanding and manners taught but everyday he either bites me or rears on me and its getting a little dangerous. It just seems like he's always got something up his bum when youd think nothings wrong because he aint playin.

Anybody else have some bad chemistry?

I've seen horses that are real jerks. But its mostly because their owners are too. Or that they were never properly trained.

My horse prior to Vida was a great trail horse and never gave me any trouble but I never "felt the love" from her. I didn't hate her, just never really connected emotionally with her. I owned her for 2-3 years and I don't remember her ever looking me in the eye. She always did what I asked of her, I think she was just indifferent to humans.

Haha there was only one horse I genuinely disliked - and she hated me right back. She was just started under saddle when I first rode her (my friend was too scared to ride through her first canter under saddle so I agreed to)... she was an angel for my friend, but as soon as I got on she tried to rub me off on jump standards, the rail, anything!
*sigh* :)

Yes, a Qh mare named Baily. She was a snot, would rear at me every chance she got. I was training her at one point; until she kicked me in the stomache. I worked her through that ride (trying very hard not to cry - scared the crap out of me!) and ended up telling my coach I just couldnt work with her any more. Im glad to say that she ended up in a good home with someone who she loved and could handle her bad habits

There are many horses I dislike. Many of them because of their crappy attitude or behavior problems which is actually because of us humans.

Most horses are quite pleasant to be around. The problem is because of what people do to them.

There's horses that I absolutely hate for no reason. There is also horses that just give me the urge to hit them, regardless of how I won't I'm always so tempted to hit some horses.

Yea I reckon horses have very different personalities but when they are jerks its most probably our fault. Its just amusing how they tend to be perfect for others and then glare at you for no reason :P

As I said, this horse probably just needs a knowledgable hand but im pretty sure that isnt me haha

GIngerbread....... she is the most mare-ish horse on the planet, mean to feed, unsafe to be around, bites, kicks, fights with other horses and will let you love on her and pet her and ride her then kick you as you walk by...She's a SNOT and I can't stand her! :roll: We had the opportunity to own her at one time...cuz she rides well and I have enjoyed riding her before. But her manners are absolutely unacceptable!!! :roll: Thus...I don't like her!

Years ago my youngest daughter had a Fox Trotter mare that absolutely hated men. The dern thing would come come right up to my daughters, or to my wife....but wouldn't come to me or my boys, even if we was holding a feed bucket.
She wouldn't ride for a guy neither. She didn't mind girls riding but if it guy got on her, she'd either buck you off, drag you off or if all else failed... she'd get on the ground and roll you off.

I've never actualy hated a horse but than one came perty close.
