My gelding wont listen to me!
I just got A tb gelding about 4 months ago. He's a 17 hand dapple grey and hell be 7 in march. He was professionally trained the first month I had him and he did great! No problems at all! But all of a sudden, recently he has been bad! He refuses to go out on trail rides( which he used to LOVE!) and will refuse to walk forward. I kick and use my crop and spin him but he will refuse! Now he's starting to do this when I ride him to the arena! I had a 35 minute fight with him today, only to get NOWHERE! He reared up on me, its the first time I've seen him rear up! So off to the roundpen we went.. I tried to get on and he wouldnt let me! It took 7 tries of getting on, spinning him around and trying over and over.. Whats his deal? Why is he starting to get these bad habbits. I don't let him get away with anything either so im not sure why he's starting to do this! Does he hate me?:( please help me get my baby backk! I was just going to start him in dresage and now im rethinking that, maybe he's not the right horse for me? Im only a beginner, but im advanced enough to deal with his attitude.. What should I dooooo?
