Thanks he does tend to learn quickly which is good but bad lol good because he learns new things fast and knows what I want but bad because if I don't nip the problems on the bum before they start there full blown problems before you know it
He sounds exactly like my big boy lol, except Mitch bucks rather than rears.
He head tossed for ages, and I put a set of SJ ears on him for schooling one day just because and he just stopped head tossing.. Now he only does it if I'm asking him to do something he doesn't want to do, or if I'm asking the wrong way... He is a very self assured and opinionated horse! Lol
Ear bonnets a good idea.... I think my boy does it out of boredom though or annoyance, just always have to keep him occupied, which is different for me as my old horse was that lol an old horse who was happy to just plod around :)
