So to clarify, he was running around like an idiot while you were in his pen, getting too close to you and bucking/leaping around?
If it had been me, I probably would have gone slightly more extreme just so it was completely clear to him that I wanted him to stay out of my space, and I woul have both raised my arms harshly, made myself look 'bigger' (raised shoulders), and stepped purposefully towards him, the equivalent of an alpha horse pinning it's ears and taking a few steps towards him with a snaked head- but I'd say you did pretty good. He should never be allowed to buck or play too near to you.
You were right not to let him in your space while he was acting silly. Only let him approach when he is calm and quiet. Good job.
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
