With mine acting up, when I first tried to correct him and he was just brought in straight from the field and tied, he would get worse. It wound up being a battle that I couldn't win because he would escalate so quick and that was it, he drowned me out. Now that he was worked then tied and got the gist of it. If he starts to act up a little bit the correction works. I yell for him to quit if he paws and he listens. I like the idea of taking them out and lunging them right away. I would have liked to try that.

My horse had seperation issues (which included pulling back and making a fuss) with his buddy untill i spent more time with him gaining his trust and becoming more of a leader, when he used to pull back, i would work him round me where he wanted to go of to, i would never work him round me where he would be tied up. He ascociated the place that he is tied up the place that he doesnt get worked, so eventually he stayed there. The times he pulled back and ran to the paddock gate i would sometimes kick him, to show him in his horse language that i didnt like that, and than i would work him around me allot near the gate ! And than tie him up. Never did i ever let him get away with going to where he wanted to go of to ! But he mostly pulled back because he didnt trust me to be a good leader and protector, now i am so i havent had any pulling back or seperation issues to the point that he doesnt neigh back to his buddy !
