Okay, I told my barn manager I wanted to do horse training and she laughed at me. She said if I wanted to train I can work with her stallion Curly. I said, okay why not! So here is the deal. He is pushy, aggressive, he bites, he rears and strikes out at you, he kicks, bolts and bucks. She wants me to have him be ready for the saddle again, well, I was lunging him the other day, and he did about two lap, and turned in to face me then charged me, bit my arm knocked my down and kicked me AND stepped on my arm, THANK GOD it didn't break. I told her what he did and she still wants me to work with him. So I did. I worked him a couple more times but he will NOT stop biting and if you do anything to stop him, he will rear up on you and strike. When he would start to nip, I'd tap him with the crop and say no, and I'd say tap him instantly. The more I told him no, he harder he was biting and pretty soon he reared up on me and knocked me down. Then I was leading him and he bit my coat and tore back against me and I slipped on the ice and he ran of and dragged me to the cement where I had no choice but to let go or be ground up like hamburger. Now I have a very large bruise on my leg where I was kicked, I have a cut on my other leg and a very large sore, which is scabbed up now, where he bit my arm, and scratches on my tummy. He is completely unruly and hasn't been touched in over two years since his stall is attached to his paddock she just tosses him food and water. He cribs from boredom and I'm trying to help him but all he does attack me and run back to his stall and wait to be let in! He is 16.2hh so he's not small either. He is 6 or 7 I'm not sure and he was broke to ride at one point but hasn't been ridden or worked with in a few years except breeding.
ARG! What should I do? He's beautiful and can be sweet but TERRIBLE at the same time. He is quite dangerous. I've tried working him both with and without a chain and he reacts the same either way, if not a little naughtier WITH the chain.
