Horses standing beside eachother without being mean.

This may be an odd question but I need to know how to correct this.

When both of my horses are being ridden, Jewel, the dominate horse, doesn't like Patchy anywhere near her, I never thought while we were riding (because she has never done it before) that she would actually stop, back up, and then kick the crap out of patchy. Yes I hung on for my life.
Was funny because I had just told my friend "oh no she may show some aggression but she won't kick don't worry." Sure enough she proved me wrong!
What can I do to fix this?

You have to pay attention to the signs your horse is showing. Pinned ears, head turned with mouth open. Watch her body language to the other horse. When she displays any of it, turn her head to the other horse. She can't kick then. You can either back her away or let the other horse pass you.

To try and correct it, what we've done is have the kicking horse stand in an open area and have another horse make circles around. If and when the kicking horse displays any bad behavior, put the horse to work so it pays attention to the rider and not the other horse. Then start over. Things I've done to make them work depends on the bad behavior. If it's just pinning the ears, I would flex them. If they were to try and kick out, I would work their butt off doing circles, serpentines, backing or whatever making them hussle. Make sure the other rider knows this procedure ahead of time so they can get out of the way if you need to make the horse work.
