    Twas funny when it was over, not while it was happening! It was one of the few times I've actually kicked my horse to get the h**l out of there! I didn't know they could be aggressive till then!

    This reminds me of a guy I knew that came to the south from Montana. He was a ranch hand and got a job in Florida to catch some free range "wild" cows. He was in a swampy area and a gator appeared, scared the bejesus out of his horse who immediately reared and bolted, threw him off, and high tailed it back to the barn. The guy said he quit that day and found another place with no alligators, lol.

    Horse needs to be more scared of you than the pig. Otherwise you will get drug around in every instance.

    Find someone to help you on the groundwork you and your mother need to be able to handle this horse.

    We had feral hogs in AL, and the horses were never scared of them, even had one that lived with the TB's and who thought he was a horse.

    Thanks to every one for the helpful tips there going to be really useful

    Shropshirerosie we have had some people try to help but he can see the pigs at all so just panics and everyone has differnt oppinions and ways of doing things at the moment its ok case im not frightend of him but as im on study leave and finnished my exams I am at home all the time mum doesnt know what she going to do when I go back to school next year.

    themacpack I would like to get over the issue of him having no respect of personal space and I think it has somthing to do with the fact he wasnt brought up in a herd so never learnt and weaves and stall walks around his stable without even noticing people are there ,but it sadly doesnt stop us having to walk past a huge barn of pig everyday to get him in and out of his field.

    mtngrl7500 luckily were ok past them riding after I spend an hour of sitting on bucks, rears, running backwards, forward, side to side and trying to spin its just on the ground its so easy for him to just land on top of you :s

    I want to do join up with him to get him trusting me before starting on properly training him to be polite which I have been doing as he's not as silly when he's tied up. His previous owner used to use a chiffney to turn him out in but were now using the headcollar with the leadrope wraped around his nose causing the pressure and realise affect.
    Sorry if I've offended anyone havent ment to.

    I feel sorry for your horses on that note. No wonder you think they're best left alone. Another hobby indeed...
