It doesn't sound like the horse is in a good environment to see that sort of change so quickly.

Did her feed change?

It sounds like she's getting some dangerous behaviors starting. Maybe moving her wasn't a good idea.

Her feed used to be pony cubes, chaff and wheat husk.
It is jjust pony cubes and chaff now.
I give her lucern and oaten hay which hay should I give her because I know oaten makes them go silly and lucrn does, which one doesn't?

Hi there...
I am with Scout on this. Clinton Anderson has wonderful DVD's you can purchase and learn all those excersises...
My horse came to me after being in pasture for 5 yrs. While he was very respectful in his old home (my parents ranch) he became a totally different horse when he arrived. He started rearing while I was on the ground...crowding my space among other braty things. He just no longer saw me as a leader....
So I started working on the ground respect because when I go to get on him he will not be very respectful if I don't establish this now...first and foremost.
I know CA has books out also and on line you can find things...
Scout has the right idea. CA says to gain respect and control on the ground means you can move your horse forwards backwards left andd right. I am in the middle of working on these. Yielding the hindquarts Yielding the forequarters...we have not gone ther yet.
I think my horse has done these exercises before but he also becomes very very pushy and a jerk to the point I too cried. Now he did not trample me but I surely cowered when he reared on day when some riders rode by and he was a jerk...I let go because I was not going to be dragged by him.
I basically put him in the round pen and made him work afterwards....
He did not have shoes on at the time and I felt really bad but to let him get away with that was worng...he eventually listened and did the excersises I asked for.
I would try finding someone to help you or someone that can watch you work with Georgie...
I felt the exact same way....
Now that I have established some respect my horse tries less and less to be the dominant one...I get the issue corrected as quickly as I can and always reward the slightest try with rubbing and loving on them. But I do not let him into my "Hoola-hoop" space unless invited in there....that is my safety zone.
You can stand at a 45 degree angle from the shoulder to avoid being kicked with the hind end or struck with a front leg....
Best of luck...

Tee-hee, I have done join up about 3 times LOL.
She doesn't care.
But she was being really good today.I established my personal space, and she knows to stand at least 1ft away from me before I invite her in, see there is a good thing about having a quick learning horse, the only bad thing is that they learn bad habits quickly.

That's good progress. Although, from the behavior you described, a little more than one foot of personal space for you is in order. I would personally demand at least five feet minimum. It's going to take time to replace the pushy, disrespectful behavior with polite and constructive behavior, but if Georgie is doing better, you are definitely on the right track. Keep it up!

I agree with Scout...
It has taken a month for my horse to settle in and I do not even think he is that much settled in.
I have some foot issues to work with but I swear that I will not have the disrespectful stuff going on either...it is a safety issue that needs to be established..
Yes...I had to swallow my pride and big ol ego when my horse acted like an idiot when I braged how mellow he was....lol
Yeah right did I forget he is Livestock??? HMMMM maybe for a minute...After the first time he reared in his new home that was it...I said this is not okay I know he has issue with his feet and is in a new home but that kind of disrespect won't fly with me....
I went and bought some certain equipment and put him in to the round pen and got his feet moving....
At first all he would do is run which is not what I wanted.....Now after being consistent I have him moving forwards and yeilding the hindquarters to the left and the right and slowing to a walk. We have yet to start with yeilding the forequarters....
It is like he arrived and 2 days later his head was removed and put on backwards...lol...It is half way turned around now...lol
I took him into an indoor arena which I have not yet in the month I have been there had a chance to do ...It was fnny ...he did not know what to make of the mirrors...
So understand this is all with me on the ground not undersaddle.
So if the mirrors bothered him we walked in circles by the mirrors in both directions until he got used to them ....
Then more walking around until I saw he was comfortable with the arena...then I started asking and using the cues for yeilding his hindquarters...
He last his shoe in pasture yesterday and my shoer wont be in the area for a week. SO I went to find the shoe and did ...I think another shoer will be out there today and hopefully can put it back on. It is of course his problem foot so we will see..
I hope your horse is becoming acclimated
Half Pass....

Hi,
My horse is acting a lot better now, she doesn't run away from me at all I can put the halter on to her and run circles around her, throuw ropes over her, you name it, I can neearly do it LOL.
All I can recommend is , watch your temper,keep calm but firm,think positive, and keep persisting. You will get there!
I had to try reeeeaaaally hard, and it nearly knocked me down, but I kept on trying and now I have got there.Your horse is just trying you out, to se what he/she can get away with.Remember to reward them when they do something good and correct bad behaviour.I tried so hard with my horse and now we got there, I stood in the rain for about 1 hour just getting her to obey me and lunging her whenever she disbeyed me.My horse knew I wasn't going anywhere.
Yeah, but like say she won't stand still when you have asked her to, when she stands-praise her. When she just walks through your commands and walks all over you, then straight away without hesitation, start lunging her around and around then try again. NEVER GIVE UP! It was really just persistence that got me and georgie through it.
I wish you all the best and get back to me of you need more help, and to tell me how you and your horse are going.
All the best.

Kate (:
