If I have to move to get out of the kick zone then didn't I lose?
I guess if I hang around horses long enough I won't be so worried to discipline when I need to. If it was my horse I wouldn't care but I'm not to keen on discpline someone else's horse.
Thanks for the visual Knack for horses. Really helps being a visual learner and all. ;)
In the case of a loose, kicking horse, you just really have to anticipate his move, and get in a position where you can safely get him moving away, before he can give you the heels. In reality it happens so fast, that the horse really won't associate you moving, with getting out of his way, because you are only moving to give him a better aimed 'kick'. As long as you can get him moving his body away, you just do it; regardless of whether you have to move a tiny bit. Then maybe the next time, you will be able to get him moving away "before" he even turns his hip to you.
