Is there a reason why she cannot wear a breakaway halter for a while to give you more control until you have a CTJ with her that makes an impression? I sure would, and I would be carrying a whip or crop when with her. If she so much as looks cross-eyed-she gets it. I agree that she sounds a bit spoiled….and honestly-I have one who can be for aggressive. If he displays ONE OUNCE of aggression at feeding time-he has to wait, and may not get any. (He only gets a very small amount anyway). We are also really careful about everything he does, and he has improved 100%. If he is in a hurry to get back to his stall or the barn-every time he gets ahead I turn the other way. If he tried to charge into his stall-he has to back in. If he cannot behave at the gate when it is time to come in-he stays out. He has learned pretty quickly that the BO and I mean business. THe only time I have a relapse is when someone else is doing chores if the BO is away, and now-most of them are up to speed.
I have to agree with Palomine-I could have looked at that horses eyes and known she was looking for an opportunity…..
Make sure her manners are 100%, ALL the time. Period.
We posted at the same time….The 9 yr old dropping and running may have been seen as a game by this mare…..just a thought. Keep all kids away from her.
