I picked up a 2 year old Paint filly last year who'd been badly spoiled and basically allowed to get away with murder - I was told she was green broke when she clearly had no idea what I wanted, I was told she was docile and she almost kicked my head in a couple times when I dropped my guard. She was just pushy, bossy, aggressive and not afraid to use her teeth or hooves.
I took up a firm but gentle hand with her, and now at 3 and 1/2 she's one of the sweetest, most docile and loving horses I've ever had the pleasure to work with! There were times I swear she was a lost cause and was just ready to ship the stubborn mule, and I'm very glad I stuck it out!
Best of luck with her!
