Spirithorse, unlike you, I have no point to prove or philosophy to uphold. I responded to your advice/post the way I did because I thought it was, and is, DANGEROUS. I would have done the same to ANY post/advice I felt was as ill advised and dangerous as yours…so don't take it personally! This isn't about YOU and what you can do. It's about the person asking the question and whether or not the advice is safe for THEM. There are things I do with horses that I would never advise anyone else to do, because I know that if it is done improperly, they, or the horse, could get hurt.

Horses are honest animals and appreciate honesty, not sneakiness.

I think the OP is smart enough to make the proper decision...she doesn't need you slamming someone based on your opinion. You can disagree with me, I don't care, but if you feel the need to comment do it in a respectful way.

I'm not trying to make this about what I can do.....I'm not shallow ;) I'm sticking up for my opinion because it's worked for me, on many horses, each time...and I've never been in danger.

I WOULD agree with the 'instead of making a problem, just feed her after you work her' thing if this had been done in the first place. BUT since she has told you she is dominant, you can't just change routine and forget it ever happened. You need to confront it. I would put a halter on her with a long lead rope and then feed her. Make sure the end of the lead rope is somewhere where you can reach it when you enter the stall. When you come in (you could maybe hold a lead rope to make the scenario more authentic) and she points her butt at you, pull the lead rope that's attached to her halter and make her face you. You can even hold a whip and whack her butt while you do this so she understands what she did was a no-no

Spirithorse is right about the last post. She knows that the OP would have the knowledge about whether her horse would react badly to the advice or not. Don't climb into her. She was just offering advice that has helped her and may help others too.

Everyone must respect each other's opinions and views. If you don't agree with something, either say it in a nice way, or just don't say anything at all.

Respect is a two sided agreement. It is not dominance. Let her eat in peace.
