To those that saw the post about the gelding that I have that's really aggressive xD
went from, if you ask him to move he'd start kicking; rear at you.. ear pinning... and would carry through with his threats. Kinda making it hard for you to 'win' in any way. lol.
anyway.. I can honestly say he moves now
yes, still gives attitude, will act like he's gonna throw a kick but hasn't carried through in a while. tonight I got him in the round pen, got him walk/trot/cantering and changing directions. At first he would do the attitude thing, pin his ears act like he wanted to get in my space, kinda get in kicking position and hop his butt a little but those back legs never come out... But I've been keeping a nice lunge whip with me at all times, guess he decides that dang thing does sting cause at first he was not scared of it at all
lol. I reminded him and pushed him harder when he would do anything like that. ended it when I could move him without much/any attitude and 0 offers to kick.
I could walk into his space and he would back away. no offer to rear or anything. I could point at his hip and he would move it away, both directions. and I could point at his shoulder and make him move his front end away. he was nice tired and sweaty by that point though
I think we're making some progress. Hopefully we can get through this. I expect him to test me occasionally no matter what but that's a horse.
Right now I trust the stud here more than him o.-
