So... It's not so much of a training advice, but advice on what can be done (if any). My next-next neighbors got ugly pony stud. Just because he's ku-u-u-uteee and their grandkids can play with him. Frankly with so many nice geldings around I just don't get it, but... Anyway... Unfortunately they put him in field right next to my next neighbor ring, which both of us are using (I work with my mares and she trains her OTTB gelding). So yesterday I first faced him when he started to run like crazy through the bushes back and force along the ring screaming like crazy. He didn't stop or shut up for like 30 mins (until someone came and dragged him away). My mare went pretty crazy too showing off, trying to run and all that.
I do understand I have to get my mares to be OK with him and I'll be working on that. But it's VERY annoying, I mean all this screaming and noise. Can I do something? Should I talk to the neighbor? I've been on several farms with studs and neither place him next to the riding arena. So I assume it's not something normal, right?
