My gelding Poncho is the best trail horse I have ever owned,but I have one problem. As soon as you go to get him out of a walk, he starts throwing his head, holding his head up as high and he possible can, if I go to turn him he starts to turn the other way and if a continue pulling the reins he will stop flick his tail hop forward. Then go the way I want. And then If I kick him to get him into a lope he starts to like bunny hop. Last time I rode him, you can even ask JazzyGirl, he was doing this and rearing a little as if he was spooking but he wasnt.. so like rearing to the side. Im so tired of him doing this and not listening.
So what I was doing was everytime he would try to buck me I would kick him and work him until he did start to listen and what not. Also, after I work him he seems to listen but then the next time I work with him it seems to be the exact same and last time... its really frusterating.
It really got to me because I would just deal with it and correct him for it everyday but this last time I went to orrect him and my finger got stuck and all wrapped up in the reins and I was bleeding that I just wanted to keep working him until he couldnt walk anymore.. He is INSANE! But ONLY if you try anything more then a walk..
I HAVE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM JUST RE-OCCUR AND WHAT NOT NORMALLY IF I CORRECT THEM. ITS THE LAST TIME I HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT AND I HAVE BEEN HAVING THIS PROBLEM FOR OVER 2 YEARS WITH HIM.. HE IS 7 YEARS OLD I BELIEVE. AND A PAINT QH.. AND VERY LAZY
