    Is he gelded?

    I would suggest to go to library or even on Youtube and look for training techniques. People like Clinton Anderson and such are a wonderful source of info. On here all one can do is read, it's much better to see it in action.

    Here's a link to get you started:
    YouTube - clinton anderson colt starting.

    Also, Western Horsemen and Cherry Hill have some excellent books.

    PS: Are you planning on moving him to were there are other horses? Being alone isn't that great for their mind.

    I agree, when are you getting him gelded? Has he dropped? That will take care of some of his agression.

    If he will let you have a look and see if you can tell... If not you can get a vet out to look for you and then you can make an appt to do it. Usually its a quick procedure. How are you getting on with him?

    1. He's an arab &
    2. He's a colt



    Theres the majority of your issues with him pushy and a general pain in the patootie. Are you going to geld him? That's probably a good place to start and I would do it before he gets too much older if you are going to. Colts can be tricky enough at the best of times but with a breed like an arab it gets even more tricky cause that's just the kind of horses they are.

    It can be difficult if he is a bit jumpy but you need to be firm and show him who is boss. Don't let him in your space and if he invades your space back him up each time he does it until he learns where he should be. If he walks all over you on the ground it will be even worse in the saddle.

    Thanks so much. I guess I will be getting him gelded SOON!!! And the weird thing is he is much better if I go by myself rather than takin my boyfriend or any friend!

    Being better when it's just you would be normal for a young one. The more people milling around him the more "up" he's apt to get. Look into the gelding and maybe someone more experienced to come out and give you some pointers on handling.
