    i need to know if this is wrong... please help

    Hey,

    Ok so most of you know what horse I ride right, but he is considered to be a bad horse.

    Most days he is great, like today I was sitting on a crate hoding his rains and he bent down and blew in my face and let me kiss his nose, but...that was the only thing he was good at today.

    Earlyer that day someone found it funny to spook him. They called him to te gate of his stall and patted him and then claped in his face to scare him. This I know isnt right.

    I also need to know, about what should be judged as agrumby ear thing, like ears back and stuff couse you can see by my picture that he likes to rest his ears like that, but everyone tells him off for it, ill be leading him and suddenly someone will go "AYE put your ears foward. Watch out couse he might do someting, but he just had his ears in the same positing as they are in the picture. The slap him to tell him off for it : (

    So I think, he ws in a bad mood right today, like he lunged a half bluff at me ( which he hasnt done before ) and he was charging after other instructors.
    Do you think that besides him having his grumpy dayswhich he has, do you think that becouse of the spooking thing that mabe that may have put him in that mood, couse before he was spooked, he was fine.

    I really need to know this couse I need to tell someone. Except im scared that if I say something and its nothing that I wont be alowed to ride or something : (

    I can't stand around and watch this anymore.

    Please help :(

    Thanks

    His ears in the picture don't show aggression, however if he is lunging at you then he obviously is at times. No one should be clapping in his face or doing anything to deliberatly scare him. If this is happening regularly it may cause his aggression. Either way scaring him is unacceptable and you should say something about it

    I know. His ears were flat at his head when he was lunging at everone, not like in the picture, but people tell him off for him having his ears like they are in the pictue. Is this wrong for them to slap him for it?

    Yes it is wrong to hit him for it if he is not actually doing anything that will harm you. Hitting wont stop him pinning his ears back. It is likely to make him more agressive.

    Its really confusing when you have everyone shouting at you about his ears and to watch him, bt I would know if he is showing agressing couse he walks with his head by my shoulder when he is on the lundge rope.

    So am I right? That the reason for him being like he is, is becouse people treat him like this? He is the most loverly horse when he dosnt love you for treats, but becouse of these people he ends up like thins.

    Im going to the stables tomorrow and if im right im goinng straight to my instructor to say something.

    The only problem is...i havnt been helping there for aslong asthe other girls, s if I go against one of them, then they arnt going to be very happy are they.

    That's why I need to make sure my asumptions are right.

    They are only concerned for your safety, especially since he is known to lunge at people etc. Yes keep an eye on him, lunging at people, biting, kicking etc is unacceptable. But if the worst he is doing is pinning his ears there is no need to hit him for it. Just be careful is all

    Well you are probably right, I don't know the horse and havnt seen him doing this, but yes definitely talk to your instructor about whats happening

    I know all that I am really care ful I have one eye on him at all times, espesally when an inexperianced rider is on him. It was the first time he had ever lunged at me. I know they are worryed for my safty, but he wasnt in that mood, when he was brought in from the paddock.
    It just makes me realy angry with the way he is treated. Yes you need to watch him, but there is no need to treat him like this.
    The sameperson whodid this rides him hard. Like instead of squeezing him into a trot, she sometimes kicks him hard. You can tell its hard couse you can see the riples where she has kicked him.
