If you've decided to quit working with him then why were you working with him again? I'm not trying to seem rude, but you need to take what you said seriously if you want them to get the point. I understand your concerns and wish that your family would listen to you, but this horse is going to kill people and if it had the chance it'd probably kill you. Please, for your safety quit attempting to train this horse. Your mother doesn't understand what she's creating in this horse. Anyone with eyes can see that a horse like that shouldn't be around people.

I would have to agree with your mother.
Getting mad has no place in training.

You have to have the tools and a plan.

MY "getting mad" was popping him and yelling at him WHILE he was trying to trample me. I wasnt mad just correcting him but to her I was apparently.

Hey Marecare, you may be on to a loser here. I don't think this particular OP wants help so much as she wants to vent. Just my two cents worth.

Definitally not. At first I was trying to figure out how to get him to lunge but now im trying to HOPEFULLY get info for my brother as a last resort to open his eyes. After that, im completely out of this deal.

Texas, I don't believe you are Not listening to our advice or even your own instincts. I think you are wise for just saying no. I certainly don't think that reprimanding a horse that is uncontrolable or unsafe is being mean or a way of you being mad. Please just stay out of the line of fire. You do Not have to do anything you feel uncomfortable doing and to have a parent get mad at you for disciplining a horse that is trying to kill you is soo wrong!!

Thank you. He is in the "misfit" pasture now and I will not be touching him again. Im going to be showing this thread to my brother as a last resort to keep my nephew safe. Only then can I be satistfied that I've done everything in my limited possibilities to keep him safe.

Ok,
Lets get into the Marecare time machine and travel beck to the moment just before he starts to get the idea to "trample" you.

You are standing in the center of the round pen and you already know what he is going to do because this is like that movie "Ground Hog Day" where you have to keep reliving the day until you get it right.

Now you know he is going to get the idea to run you over so how do you change his mind without getting mad and yelling?

I honestly have no idea. My first instinct would be to say quit before he GOT the idea but I can't lunge him one circle on each side every day for the rest of his life and expect him to get anything from it.
