Hi all, I have a 9 yr old Morgan I lease who had until about a month ago lived a pasture life with noone working with him (I don't think his owners have seen him in years). He is very smart and very stubborn. He is the dominant in his herd and it shows during training sessions. My problem right now is he refuses to lunge, but just for me. He will for my friend Parker, but not for me. I know it is a respect thing, but how to remedy it?
Also, how do you discipline a horse without it being abusive? I usually do the circle trick but what if that still doesnt deter the behavior?
Thanks in advance!
