My horse has started being quite senstive with his legs and always kicks out with his hind right leg often when you are doing something with that leg. He has had his back looked at a few times in the last few months, often with a stiff right shoulder. But we have been getting that treated & he is only in light work.
But he used to be quite good for the farrier but of late has been a bit of brat & yesterday kicked my hand while I was putting on hoof oil.
I have been working on his legs with a whip rubbing it up and down to desensatise(sp?), picking his feet up often & to help the farrier have been working on gripping his legs in between mine cause we have discovered he doesn't like that much either.
Any other helpful tips to get this bratty behaviour in check?
