You know I agree with crazychester about him trying to be the boss.
When I got my horse Gypsy, she was my first horse and it was awful! She also had abusive handling in her past and she was a reck before she came to this barn. But when I got her I was honestly going to sell her because she was just so darn mean and we were butting heads so much. It was really hard for me because I was still learning, well learning about horses and training. So it was a huge jump for me and it was hard to get over it. But I had lessons with ground work. I took a class horse 101 and it was just ground work and riding.
Is their anyway you can take lessons?
Just don't let him take over. Any horse will push buttons and try and find that spot. You just have to know when they are doing it and how to correct it properly.
From east to west a travlin gypsy found her prancing pony for now their hearts run as one...into the north
