So, Paddy is to the point where she wants to play with people. She'll trot up and then kick out or rear up and try to play with a person like they're a horse. Well, everything I've read and everything I've ever been taught when working with a foal is to smack them on the butt and they'll get the hint. Well, I've tried that and she'll stop for that day. I think the people who own her mom are letting her get away with it though I have no proof. I've seen them interact with mom and with Paddy and they never seem very comfortable. The other day, Paddy reared up in front of the guy and he just stood up and walked away. Is there a way I can make her stop and teach them how to control her from doing that?
Any advice would be great!
