Okay so as they say my 4 year old gelding and I have a green-on-green relationship. Work on a lead rope is good, he moves away from pressure and he will let me do almost anything to him. He will let me pick up his hooves but not long enough to be picked out yet. He's already accepted a bit and bridle, saddle and girth, weight on his back and some work with bomb proofing. We have worked a bit on lungeing and in a round pen. As soon as I put more pressure on him with the lead rope he will trot half a lap and stop and face the rail so I would throw the end of the rope at his butt or throw a glove at it to get him to move forward. This worked for a while, but then he decided to try to push at the gate or jump out of the pen so I moved him to the large round pen that he could not hurt himself. After that he would stand at the gate and try to break through it. Anytime I could get him to move he would move away and come right back to the gate. He is never tried to bite me or charge my space, but when I insist on moving he threatens to kick. I am really hoping to get him to see the round pen as a good space and not asylum. I have no ideas of continuing his backing until we have a mutual understanding on the ground and he can respect me. Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated!
