Sorry I ask a lot of questions ahah. And alright I think I can do the tight circle things or knock him off balance a little bit. That might work.
I would NOT put up with an agressive gesture like that. Better to stop it now before it gets worse.
My gelding used to rear up and strike out at me when I frist tried to lunge him. I gave him a whack on the shoulder with my lunge whip when he did that and firm, loud, "stop!", and he quit pretty fast. I didn't beat him with it, just a whack to make him realize he's NOT the dominant one over me and he's NOT going to be agressive towards me.
