pushy mare

Okay so Nikita the herd boss so really mean to me! If I go to get Toby she is at the gate not letting me in. I have a scuffle with her before and the only person she likes is my dad and her owner is a guy! What can I do to help her not be so mean and pushy?

You have to think as if YOU were the boss mare. What would the boss mare do if she was being pushy with you? Get pushy back!

Okay thank you!

I am having the same problem with mine right now, and she's just a baby! Not even 2 yet. She is a very dominant horse.

Nikita is like 10 or 11 I am not sure! But she loves my dad! He can hang on her, hug her head and get stuff out her mane and she gives her owner so much crap it is werid. I do not like her she picks on Toby and is just plan rude!

Bring an extra lead rope with you. Don't hit her with it (unless she is in danger of hurting you). But swing it around you and step towards her threatningly. This isn't good for all horses, but it seems to work really well for dominant horses. After a while she will learn that YOU are boss an you won't need anything.

Okay I can do that and some times I have to shove her with the gate but not hard just enough to make her move and that does not take much.
