Your horse could Kill someone. Please don't worry about her feelings or your bond with her. She can get over any harm that is done to her easier than a kid can get over getting kicked in the head.
    This was my first thought. Why mess around with it, someone will get hurt and moving her out of the way doesn't fix the problem.
    She would get it from me with the whip.

    My appy was the same way mom2pride, only with horses! He would try to charge the others when eating so when I saw him pin his ears, before he ever moved his feet, I drove him away and wouldn't allow him to come back until he had a nice expression on his face. Worked like a charm! I was able to walk around the barn, getting hay, checking the water tank, etc. and he would never leave his spot because he knew that I was the one who called the shots lol.

    Mocha was pretty good at breakfast this morning. She actually was one of the last to come into the barn and she didn't give anyone else any grief when she came in.

    I am not saying that the problem is fixed...but it was a good morning. One of the geldings was actually being a jerk this morning (the highest ranking gelding) but he is a biter. The putting them in their place is never done. Lol

    Small steps! But at least you are seeing *some* progress, that's a start!
