Relax and play... help..
I have a 3 yrs old TB colt, that is a prospect for show jumping. we were doing very well the first 4 months and then my trainer said he was 2 spoiled so we started pushing him a little bit more, and then he turned agressive to other horses, and disrispectfull to people, he will bite other horses in the track and rear, and bang his head so you cant put the bit.
and then everybody said not to take him to trails, or let him loose in the pastures until i could handle him again, and it all... went worse!!! i had a horrible accident with him 9 days ago he went bucking me off into a wall, no horses or other people were arorund thankfully but that was just because i stoped and fix my saddle and he went nuts, i got a back injury so i cant ride until next week, so i send him to a friends farm so he can work him while im out and what does he say?? well my horse is a real pleasure to ride lol. he has been taking him out to the woods with other horses, mares and stallions and he is doing awsome.
so him, my trainer and i agreed that he is to young to handle the pressure, so im changing his rutine to make him less bored.
im thinking and my trainer 2, that we will work him twice a day 30-45 mins each session instead of a looonggg 60-90 mins session daily. also we are taking him out to pastures again. and we agreed that now that he is going to have 14 sessions of working a week, 5 of them wont be ridding him, so the other was to relax and play any advice of activities i could do with my boy to help him relax and dont get bored maybe enjoy a little more the company of other horses? maybe some toys???
help please i really love my boy and i wanna rebould my relationship with him, this bad behaovour has been the last month thats all.
