For any level of horse. My horse doesn't try pawing, but he will back up or turn on the forehand (or at least he tries to)

You can either get off and work them if you aren't confident.. or if you KNOW you'll win this battle, stay on *and win. Sometimes it can get out of hand though.. but I always try and help him when the problem arises.

I was going to say! LOL
Horses have a mind of their own - therefore it doesn't matter how well they are trained, they are still prone to "stupid moments" just like people will.
An adult who knows better might still be tempted to act out just because... Horses are the same.
That's one reason why I never believe there is a horse that is "100% bombproof". If you have a brain, you have a chance of acting like an idiot eventually.
As they say, horses will be horses!
