    I was training a green pony once and she was being a brat, so I worked her hard untill she started behaving. I was cooling her off, and she decided she'd had enough of me. One second I was sitting on a pony, the next the front half of her just disappeared and I stepped off just in time. Before she did more then get on her side, I kicked her bratty little a$$ HARD! My toe hurt for a few days, lol. She flew up, and I jumped on and worked her even more. It might seem harsh, but she now belongs to a beginner 8 year old and I don't regret breaking her of that habit before it even started.

    There are so many reasons for that. It could be an itch, or them being stubborn, or pain, or just not knowing that it is unacceptable, or a too-tight cinch. Horses in the wild will roll in water and wet soil because it cools them off and the mud helps to protect them from insects. I used to ride this gray horse (the same one who broke my arm) that would just try to roll whenever you would stop and stand for more than a minute. I would either gig him in the mouth or stick him with a bootheel when I felt him start to go down. My TB Flipper wouldn't really roll, he used to throw himself down and have a hissy fit when he would get excited and prancy. He got over that though.

    It's never happened to me but it has happened to my best friend...
    We went on a icelandic horse trek here and it was summer and the bugs were really annoying and when they bit it hurt,<so while we were getting ready to go my BFF's horse tries to roll and so does my moms xD It was my BFF's first time ever riding. But the ride itself was a blast :) *Even though the bugs were super annoyingggg! >:/ *
