My 4 yr/o Quarter Walker cross will not work in a round pen without a lunge line on. He will lunge without a chain over his nose outside of the round pen very well, but when you let him lose in a round pen, he tries to get out. A few days ago he flung himself at the panels. Now he trys to budge threw the door. Unless you have a line on him to stop him from doing it. He messed up 3 panels trying to get out.
He also has a stalling problem. He does not what so over like to be stalled. I would like from him to at least get use to it just in case something happens and he has to be stalled. He has broke 6 stall doors. Which was very embarrassing.
He also has a respect issues. He was kept as a pet for all of his life and never weaned from his dam until I got him and sold the mare.
He will toss his head when you ride or ground drive him. I have tried different bits and even used a halter. Which is also a respect issue.
He doesn't like to be cross-tyed. I found that out the hard way.
Any help is much needed and welcomed.
