    The worst thing you did was intervene, they probably owuld have sorted it out then.

    Have you tried introducing them 1 at a time? My policy used to be that new horses would spend a night in the stable next to the boss (used to be stan) so they could talk over the wall and then would be turned out with stan for a few hours. Then when they were settled with stan I turned everything else out too.

    Normaly when the boss has a accepted then everything else will

    After more then 40 years of horses..new ones.old ones..training with some joining the herd for a few weeks to longer..what I have learned is if you can get a coral that all the horses can be close to each other..but can't get at yours..it slows them down. Just getting use to each other. Every herd has there own pecking order. And in my herd I have one that tries to run everything.one that actually does..and five others that want too..lol..but time takes time.just try not to let them get your horse hurt. If you can't get them close enough to sniff noses yet in there own place then last resort is hoble the dominant one to slow her or him down so yours can always get away with ease. But that's if nothing else works..and if im stuck with pasture only.. hope it works out for you
