something to keep in mind.. when you go out around other horses you can put a red ribbon in his tail. this will warn others that it's a possibilty he might kick. we use that with a mare of my mother's who kicks out every once in a while. every one around here (texas) seems to understand and stay away from her back end.

If you see any signs that he is going to kick a horse turn him so that his nose is facing the horse it wants to kick. If he bites u can try put a grass mask on and see if that helps. Or spin the horse in circles if it's going to kick, keep it busy

OR, you can actually train the horse to not kick instead of training the rider to compensate for the spoiled, dangerous mount they dare show up on in public.

If you would. Please don't use the bold. It portrays that you are yelling... and it's rude. We are trying to help her train the horse. Throwing ideas round. That kind of thing. While i know the ribbon idea is not correcting the horse, it does warn others, and even if the horse is taught not to kick it would be good to use, because horses are unpredictable some time and it's always good to have warning.

It's also good practice to assume that another horse you are riding up on or with is a kicker, even if they don't have a red ribbon on. Don't let the horse you are on get close enough to sniff either. Just keep a safe distance for the safety of you and your horse.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!

Oh yea i agree. but not everyone thinks about those things, and around where i live there is lots of those people. seeing a ribbon on a horse's tail seems to make them think. lol at least a little.
