    That's good to know! I am hoping that if I am consistent, then he will pick up on the fact that rearing or hopping temper tantrums are not going to work. I sure wanted to let him return home and let him have his way so that he would stop that behavior, but especially because he acted up, I HAD to make him finish. This horse acts a lot like my two year old twins. ;)

    It is possible to "pull his plug" (it takes a lot) but I seriously doubt with the amount of riding you did that was the issue. He just thought being a brat was going to solve his problem....which it didn't..good for you!

    Yup, sounds like he was giving you his "opinion" about the situation. As he learns that you are in charge, he may still give his opinion , but it will be with less conviction.
