My horse is very dominant/alpha/lead horse in any situation with other horses. I have established my role as leader to him with the monty roberts join-up and blah blah blah. Well. He has developed a new habit that I am unsure how to correct.
Any time he's running around in the pasture and galloping around he'll kick out towards me. He's not close too me so I'm not in any danger of getting kicked, but in people language he's saying "f you"
I had him in the round pen the other day and when I sent him forward in a lengthened trot he took off and tried kicking out, so I corrected it by sending him on even harder and throwing a stick at his butt.
How else can I work on this and stop getting this disrespect?
He's being rude! :)
