I recently bought a suppose to be 4 yr old paint, turns out he is actually 3 but he is not broke. When I bought him I was told how he has had tack on him and he is nervous but should not be a problem. I brought him to the barn I am boarding him and he was nervous, wouldn't let you go near him, turned his butt to you. Now you can go in the stall with him and touch him but he has attitude like no tomorrow. He is very nervous about his hind quarters. I have tried getting a towel and rubbing it on him and he was iffy about that and got a stick and rubbed it up and down his legs and hind. He likes to lift his back foot a bit and show you that he is going to kick. Eventually I was able to put a saddle pad on him and some days I can some days I can't get it near his back. I tried lunging him this weekend and he wont move. He stands there and looks at you and I tried using the whip and (not hard) hitting his back end and still would not move. He started making it so you can't even get the whip to touch his butt because he pulled it away. He is a very stubborn guy. The past two days now I have gone to see him and he looks at me and walks away and will not let me anywhere near him, has absolutely no interest in me. I feel like he hates me now for wanting to do some work with him and I just don't know what to do anymore. I am not experience at training horses but I think I am doing pretty good with him, I just have no clue where to start now or what to do next. Sorry this is so long, hopefully I can find some help here because everywhere else is not working.
