I do not think he is evil, but has the potential to develop "evil" tendencies. Like you mentioned is he very, very smart. He has figured out a way to manipulate people into doing what he wants. He was born a brat, and that I firmly believe. I handled him the first day he arrived at the farm and he was pushy, mouthy, and nasty. All of this could have been corrected with a good solid FIRM foundation. Which he did not receive. He was taught from the first day of his training that HE is in control. His foundation is his own agenda, he out smarted the girl that started him.

Now that I am challenging him, he is lashing out.

You can't.

So, you are stuck with a couple choices. Go back to extensive ground work, or go banshee on him while riding. Unless you are as athletic as the hybrid horsemanship dude, and every bit as experienced, I don't recommend the latter.

I should give him a call. Maybe he'd fly in from Japan

I think that if I couldn't get a horse to strike a lope on the ground (as in a round pen or on a long line) by just tapping my leg with my rope and then slow back to a walk and then a stop -without- having to be pulled, rather than just stampeding off or sucking back, I would not put my leg over that horse yet. Though some are braver than I. ;]

You couldn't pay me to ride him in a round pen. I want to stay as far away from walls, panels, etc when he rears. I don't want to be stuck between a horse and a hard place

Don't give him the chance to rear. The second you feel him start to suck back change directions disengage that hind end. My guy has forward motion issues you can not give them even that split second to think they are in control. Also do more ground work. I bet he is showing signs of this behavior there also do more transition and get him used to being pressured and a very noticeable release. Good luck

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]

I cannot get him to move his feet let alone disengage his hind end. I try to steer him even a little when he sucks back he jumps in the air.

What is the horses behaviour like in a herd with other horses? Do you have access to water, like a lake or something you could take him in??? If so I would def. Go with him in the water, chest high and make him go forward, there is no way that he can rear badly and the bucks will be hardly noticable, been there, done that... water works wonders if you have a nasty horse!!! The dummy idea is another good idea - been there but did take way longer than the water method which is actually the way the natives used to break their horses!

He is the dominant horse in the herd, constantly picks on the other horses. No, I do not have access to water. I am slightly confused as to how that would help my situation. His problem is moving while being sat on, not being sat on in general.
