My youngster threatened to kick me yesterday when I was putting on his boots. I think he thought the world was ending. He certainly practically sat down after the wollop I gave him for the threat.

Wild dogs? lived in the Uk most of my life, currently live in the middle of snowdonia national park and less then 3 miles from a zoo. Have yet to see wild, feral or escaped preditors!
I had one nasty farm dog try to nip a horses heals, a schooling whip rapped accross its nose soon sent it home with its tail between its legs.
If I Came accross something nasty like an escaped preditor then I would expect my horse to flee.

Do escaped monkeys count as preditors? we've got a few of them round here!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Ooops - guilty as charged sorry!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Now back to the question... My horses don't kick. However if someone will come from behind and smack their butt when they don't expect it, there is a very high possibility that person will get a hoof print in breast, or (if unlucky enough) in jaw. Even if I'll be around. Horses are prey animals, doesn't matter how well trained they are, and how much alpha you are for them, the defense reaction is still there, even in the quietest ones.
But in the Op's situation this was not really a defensive reaction but an agressive one, and I think that is what everyone here is getting at... that type of behavior is never acceptable. Op honestly it takes a lot of knowledge and work to establish ground respect. If you cant get anyone more experienced to help you than I think your best bet is to do what your husband says. Its not worth anyone getting hurt and I can see this kicking problem turning into a slippery slope fast.

^^ I think most of the heated remarks were not directed at the OP, rather to others who introduced some (very) alternative theories.

My post wasnt directed at the heated remarks towards... you know who lol... but I was rather pointing out to KV that the pony's actions shouldnt be considered as defensive but as agresssive

Aha! I misunderstood, I thought you were referring to the statement about personal attacks.

My response was not directed to the OP, but more about horses, wild life, and kicking in general (not just aggression). Doesn't matter how well you train, one still can get kicked (and even killed) by the horse.
