Thank you for your opinion and point of view... but really, I do not only pet and kiss her, I am not so soft with her most of the time... I just didn't want to base our relationship only on fear.... I wanted to be also her friend... But maybe with this horse, it won't be possible....
I understand what you are saying, but in my own experience with horses like this, you need to be their leader first, then their friend. Not the friend who wants to be the leader.
Your relationship with this horse will not be based on fear, your relationship will be based on leadership. Horses are herd animals, if they have their "herd", which you are a part of in her mind, then that herd needs a leader, or they don't feel secure. So, because you aren't being her leader, she has taken it upon herself to be that leader of her herd. Does this make sense?
