I have been riding for over 50 years and no horse will run through me. Well in the beginning I had them run through me but not in the last 30 years. My seat, my strength, my technic will stop any horse.
Getting cocky there! Unless you weigh 1200 lbs and are of solid muscle, you sir, are not stronger than a horse. I used a trainer once that was a lot like you and figured one day he'd just slap a correction bit in my horses mouth. He got into him pretty hard one day, to which point Cowboy backed, sat his ass into the wall (making quite a lovely hole!), and proceeded to lay down and stay there. The trainer was pretty sore for quite a while after that, and never again tempted such stupidity on a horse that could outwit him when he disapproved of a situation.
Then again, my horse dislikes men in general, and I have found he's often smarter. He does what I ask, only because he respects me, and I respect him. We're partners, and he's kept me safe in several situations where I otherwise would have been harmed. I've made a lot
of stupid decisions on this horse, but I'm still alive and in one piece, only because of the relationship we have, and because he was owned previously by people who used forceful methods such as yourself. I'm purely convinced that he treasures having a leader who isn't all macho. Then again, I'm only 5'5" with a heavy respect for the power and spirit of a horse, needless to say - being macho doesn't work for me.
Alas, I believe KevinsHorses said it best 8) Good luck to the OP.
