You will have to use a whip or something just to snap to get their attention that you mean buisness.
I have 4 of my own horses and 1 boarded here (I used to have 3 but they moved out of province) and they all know when I walk in I am in charge, not them. When I take hay out for them I carry a buggy whip, I don't even have to swing it, they know stay back until the hay hits the ground. My youngster who is going to be 4 has always known to stand back, I can leave the gate open when I am taking 4 of them out from feeding to the pasture and he will not move past the open gate unless I call him through......they aren't dumb and with a whip you don't have to even hit them....swing it back and forth in front like someone said....
My horses are the joy in my life.....
