I know, I sound like I'm crazy.
With respect, I don't think you know what to do about it, or he would never have pinned you to the wall.
When I first got Lucas the horses were all out, and I put the feed in. I went out to bring them in, for some reason - no idea why I still had the metal food scoop in my hands. Lucas charged me, I was pinned against a wall with nowhere good to go. I threw that metal scoop at his head, with force. He has never charged again. Not once, and it's been three years.
Any horse in my space meets my elbow, and horse trying to be aggressive, gets the snot knocked out of them.
