I would go to the end of this world and back a million times to do what I thought needed to be done with her. I and most people around say that I spoil her. But here is how or what they consider spoiling her. She is in a 14 x 16 stall at night with 8" of sawdust and a thick layer of straw. She is blanketed 24/7 in the winter other than groomings and workouts. She is groomed everyday twice a day. Her mane and tail stay braided 24/7 unless I am going out trail riding. She has a tail bag in 24/7 and has fly spray on everyday and her fly mask during the summer. She gets her feet done every 5 weeks. She is seen by a vet twice a year for regular check ups. She has hay available (timothy/alfalfa) 24/7 year round. She gets sprayed off every day during the summer. Dadada. I could keep going. BUT she has the best ground manners. She will not under any circumstance come into your space. When you ask her to do something she responds that instance. She does not hesitate. Now, undersaddle we are still working on because I had to put her training on hold for two years. Is stuff like that you consider spoiling? Or is treats, hand feeding grain, lots in your pocket contact without your content to do so?
You need a job? We're hiring! Lol!

Youv made your own monster hand feeding treats and grain. My horses ever push me around I knock them a good one. I NEVER EVER hand feed makes for pushy nasty horses. I go into my pasture with my horses and they don't dare get in my space. Sounds like you mare needs a good attitude ajustment. Sounds like a spoiled brat that's rude and pushy. You created your own problems quite hand feeding treats. That horse would have a tough time at my place I knock the crap right out of her. She wouldnt push me around but maybe twice. Hand feeding = nasty pushy rude horses.You need some lessons on how to handle horses. From the sounds of your post your not too horse savy.

Alot of horses are nasty, just how they are. Kind of like getting a ram, once they realize they have horns they use em.
But um thanks? I will indeed do exactly what I want... Opinions are just like butts, everyone has one. Idk what else to say to you without seeming rude, which I attempt to not do.

She isn't ill tempered, she is a spoiled rotten crap head. Glad you know when a horse isn't trust worthy but diamond in the rough.

Do tell someone else their horse isn't all that great, go tell someone else they aren't horse savy.

So please before I get more annoyed go harp someone else. Your in put is no longer nice.

Hope you can get a handle on it soon. Horses can be very dangerous without even trying.

I "spoil" my horses to pieces ie...they are pampered and loved on - Biscuit gets miles of treats but not Sarge. Sarge gets a little pushy about them but Biscuit doesn't.

If one of my horses kicked me or even threatened to kick me, I would whip him into the next year. I haven't had that problem with mine but I don't play.

I have always told my darling horses "if I can't kick your @$$ I will hire someone who can" and I mean that. I love them dearly but don't ever kick, bite, run at or in general try to dominate momma.

My former horse Red made the mistake of kicking at his new owner when she bought him as a yearling. Oh my stars...bad mistake on the part of Dashing Big Red. Margaret tore his butt up with a bull whip in a round pen. That horse has NEVER offered to kick anyone since. He was the sweetest tempered horse I have ever been around but she said he was pretty fresh when she got him. She had him for 6 years and raced him for 2.

Best of luck with your horse. Make sure she KNOWS beyond a shadow of a doubt that YOU are the boss.

Our horse Sarge is the dominate horse and he will often give Biscuit the evil eye to move him away if we are there (he loves all the attention for himself!) but if hubby growls at him and backs him up Sarge instantly obeys that human is the boss. That is what you want from her. Even in the herd she should recognize you as boss.

I'm slowly learning that she is going to need a good smack or a push... I just haven't ever had to do that with any of my horses, ever.

I don't even use a lunge whip, and I use the crop for aids.

It just kind of breaks my heart I've got to do it I guess :p

Think of it as tough love. If it doesn't stop now with a little bullying on your part, it'll just escalate and eventually it'll take more that just a little 'I'm boss' behavior from you to set her straight.

JustRuthiey, It is tough love but think of it this way, if she hurt someone seriously you may be backed into a corner and have to put her down. This is your bottle fed baby and I can understand that. I didn't bottle feed a baby but the first foal I had was a little Shetland/Quarter Horse (we didn't know she was pregnant when my dad bought her for my little sister) and OMG I literally hauled that baby around with me. I could pick her up! She would open the sliding screen door and come in the kitchen I can still hear my mom yelling "get the horse out of the kitchen!!!"

She was majorly imprinted at birth to people and your little one must have been too - now it is time that she remembers that YOU are the boss. Get that buggy/lunge whip out and let her know that behavior that is dangerous is just that...dangerous for her and that her life literally depends on her stopping that crap now!

Lots of ground work and expect and demand PERFECT behavior. She is smart and will learn that you are the boss and will kick her backside up around her neck if necessary. Good luck and hope to hear she is making a passing grade soon.
