    Good job! His reactions are exactly what you want. Especially when you drove him away from you. You have him a much-needed wake up call.

    I'm curious about what he will do

    Good job in these first steps of 'becoming the alpha'! I had to take some tough love measures on occasion with my QH when first getting her, as she's a strong alpha. Also very pleasant, smart as a tack and compliant otherwise, but I had to learn quickly, (as you are doing!) to put those 'warm fuzzies' aside in a snap if needed. There's now such harmony and respect, I can't explain! Keep up the good work :)

    I just realised how GRATEFUL I am for the horseforum. So I want to say a massive THANK YOU to all of you who participated in this thread. You all gave me excellent advice and because of that, Luca is improving. If it hadn't been for you guys, Luca would probably have ended up hurting me. (the only "horsey" people in my area are 1) a woman whom I almost never have contact with 2) a girl my age who actually doesnt know much about horses, she rides with no helmet on a little Shetland pony , screaming at it when it doesn't cooperate. Why would it with a 13 year old, tall for her age rider on its back 3) a woman who thinks hitting her horses is the only way to cure problems. That's why her 17hh STB kicks AT PEOPLE when he doesn't feel like something. ) SO...you all basically saved Luca's and my future! THANK YOU!
    Of course, our journey isn't over yet, and I will probably still ask for lots of advice about Luca on here, but still.....THANKS YOU ALL, YOU WERE ALL HONEST WITH ME, REMINDED ME OF MY MISTAKES AND PROVIDED ME WITH THE BEST INFORMATION I COULD EVER ASK FOR!

    And I know we'd like to thank you for actually listening to us! I know that may sound kinda silly, but I can't tell you how many times we've offered advice (especially to a younger person), only to be argued with and told that we're wrong because it can't possibly be their fault, it HAS to be the horse.

Thank you for working through this with our help you and your horse are better because of the time you are taking to learn how to be a better horse person!!!! Keep this up and don't lose the willingness to ask for help. I can hear the pride you have for how you are learning and how you are taking the lead with your horse. GOOD FOR YOU!!! Keep up the good work

    DraftyAiresMum,CowboyBob and NorthernMama: thank you so much! I just wanted a respectable relationship with my horse, and because of your excellent advice, I am able to make this happen! An yes, it was definitely my fault, not Luca's.
