I have a 6 y/o Arab/QH who was broke out at three and he has always had a stallion complex and lately he's getting a hyper and I feel like our 49/51 partnership has flipped so he's the boss.
So first off he's been gelded since he was 9 months old and always been around mares but he STILL does the job (not even a tease). He doesn't have a third testicle but we're unsure of proud cut. He’s turned quite ignorant and disrespectful as in when we’re in a round pen he will turn his ass to me and cow kick (not in anger, as he’s nowhere near me and just isn’t that kind of horse) or toss his head around.
I don’t mind the attitude – I kind of love it because he still has spirit, I just want that 51 percent back on my half.
So I guess what I’m asking is how do you handle a stallion with attitude or, rather, a horse that thinks he’s a stallion?
ps: He's a deam when you're on his back. Bitless, bridless, everything.
