Funny discipline

I was out lunging my horse and she got upset about something I asked her to do and actually turned around and lunged at me like she was going to bite me. I sidestepped and was about to smack her a good one, when she must've caught the expression on my face (I hadn't said a word or even changed the position of my hand yet) and started backing up like she was on fire. I just started walking towards her, and she kept on backing up until she couldn't go any farther. I looked at her for a couple of seconds and then grabbed her halter and started working her again. She straightened right up. Easiest punishment I've ever given.
The funny thing is, I've never hit her and she's not scared of people. I guess she's a horse with a conscious.

I absolutely LOVE it when they do things like that. I was working with one mare and she wasn't standing still to be mounted - she kept backing up... she backed up and hit the fence, spooked herself and decided it was just easier to stand still.

LMAO! JDI that's hilarious...the way my mare knows she's being bad is if I have a crop in hand, boy do her eyes get huge!

That's so cool! My mare knows when I'm mad at her because I'll break a switch... I don't even have to get on to her anymore, either... now when she see's me breaking a switch, her eyes get huge and she straightens up and acts like a perfect lady. XD!

:) Yes, she is a smart cookie, because I was absolutely livid! By the she was done, though, I was trying hard not to laugh. Ah, if only all horses were like that all the time.. :)

Funny.

I love it when I look at Cookie (Monster :) ), my friends horse and shake my head and give her the "look" she immediately stands still and acts like an angel or she knows its back to boring ground work and not the exciting trails!
