I promise. She's Dangerous.
DO NOT EVER play with this kind of behavior!!!! Never!! You need to get help. Trust me.
I'm not trying to scare you, but I want you to be safe. I don't want to see you on the nightly news. This has physically happened to me, and still causes me pain to this day-
I used to have a horse, named Harley. He had an 'attitude,' but I thought it was just his cheeky personality. Boy was I wrong. All of a sudden, he charges me in the field one day. Natural reaction, and not knowing better, I took off! I read up on this horrid behavior, knowing it couldn't be tolerated, and everything said to 'stand your ground, don't go in there without a whip.' So I did. I went in the pasture, and just walked around. Sure enough, he went for me. Last minute, I chickened out. I didn't want to hit my 'sweet pony.' So I just yelled, and only ran when he could literally reach out to bite me. Which he tried to do. Then I knew it was serious.
But I still treated it as attitude. So the behavior continued. I still had my whip, but it laid unused, which was my #1 mistake. Then he started kicking out at me. He did this a few times before he finally landed me on the arm. It wasn't bad, but enough to leave a good size bruise, and a good amount of pain and soreness for the next few days. And THAT is when my hard head figured it out. I DON'T want it to take you this long. And below is why.
Well, we finally got a trainer to help us out. He came and lunged him.
He. Beat. The. Crap. Out. Of. Him.
He used the whip, and I'll be darn if that horse was a different beast. Respectful, kind, caring, and no more of this.
Untill one day.
He charged me again. I didn't have the bravery of the man. That horse ran me over. To this day, I have a hairline crack in my pelvis. What I don't have? Harley. He went to the trainer, who later sold him to a man in Michigan, who uses him as a cow horse.
I beg to mercy, PLEASE get help, and get MORE than enough. I swear, you neeed it. Swallow your pride, do it before you get hurt. Please. Please.
