Junior just recently started this new thing where when I go to tighten his saddle he spreads his back feet apart and tries to cow kick me. He usually doesn't kick me but stays in this stance or pose and it does make me kinda cautious and not really want to tighten his saddle. He started doing this after I started riding english and I thought maybe it was because I have a hard time tightening his saddle since i'm not used to tightening the english saddle but I rode western today since my friends horse still had a messed up leg and I was going to let her ride some. Well when I tightened the saddle he did that stance again.
I think it had something to do with that stupid girth my trainer gave me :roll: Now he seems to have this stance every time I tighten a girth on him and its annoying me because of the fact that he could kick me. Not that he does kick me but just that possibility annoys me. He already almost kicked somebody else tightening his saddle once but I kicked him in his leg before he got to the person and I kinda got part of the blow but it didn't hurt because I was so close. That might be why he doesn't kick but what if he wanted to?
Well basically getting to the end of this I just wanted to know how many other people had this problem and how do I fix it?
