The gelding I had been training went home and his owner was pleased with what he seen in riding ect.
After he left 2 days later I got 3 TB's to train, one because of crowhopping issues and lazyness. The other 2 he just wants conditioned. When the first one hopped out of the trailer I could tell he was the calmer of the 3 and was well behaved. The second one that came out, I could tell from right there he had disrespect issues. Was pawing the ground because he didn't let him loose fast enough, yes he was impatient. But the day after he came my Boyfriend was out there with me just messing around with them. And the 3 year old lifted his leg and tried to paw at my boyfriend, boyfriend popped him for it. This horse also likes to show his butt to you a LOT.
I knew this horse had disrespect issues, just didn't know how bad till today. He wouldn't let me catch him to do some ground work with him. So we manged to get him into the round pen and I went to round penning him. From the first made full circle he was pissed. He started kicking out, I couldn't get after him for it, as all I had was a halter and it wasn't long enough to slap his ass. He got braver and started buck kicking. Last straw was when he came 10 foot from me acting like he wanted to charge. I got out not because I was afraid, but because I had nothing to get after him with but a nylon lead rope that probably would have done nothing.
I am a HUGE CA user. And have seen his round penning aggressive horses before. But I need a refresher. I know to get in there and work him and anytime he acts out towards me punish him for it. I was trying to find a video of him doing it but couldn't.
This makes me sound like I have no idea what I'm doing. But I assure you I do, my mare was almost the same way and I used the same method on her, but its been so long. I cannot remember some of it. I plan on going out and buying a long lunge whip tomorrow. For some reason my other one dissapered.
