So I have been given a 15 year old stallion, Peruvian Paso, I am not sure where to start with him. He lived his first 15 years with my Uncle and no other horses. We moved him to our home the week after Christmas 2010. Lets just say he is a handful, you can not get near him if he is eating. He bit my husband once while eating his hay and if you go near him when eating his oats, LOOK OUT. Ears back and nasty. At first he was rubbing on us and not sure if it was play or trying to become the alpha, but it was getting rough. So I took my lead rope out and scared him away to establish my space. He will not let me put a halter on him and he tries to nip not bite when we try to groom him. I need advice on where to start with him. I did ride him prior to moving him with my Uncle near by. Now we can't get near him and if you go to him he rears up and turns to maybe kick. I don't want to give up yet, I want to try ground work but do not know where to start.
