But there's a fine line between knowing the difference between a lacin' so he will learn who he needs to respect and abuse.
New horse owners don't easily recognize the cross over point and therefore either won't discipline at all or don't take it far enough
Of my four horses, three get upset if I just raise my voice, the fourth needs taken to the Woodshed about once a month. It used to be daily until I discovered he has food allergies on top of "generally bad attitude"
Congrats on your new horse and best of luck getting the Alpha dominant issues resolved; which the Alpha dominant should ALWAYS be you when you are in their presence - always - no exceptions or leeway to that one Rule
