I've got a 3.5 year old pony. He's a wee man I've owned since he was 11 months old. He has behaved like a pure gent, up until about half way thro the winter 3 months ago when he ended up being stuck inside due to extremene weather. He has always been a big challenge and keeps me on my toes but 2 months ago he became a nightmare, when we did go to lead him out he span around in tight circles, stood on your toes, reared, pulled very strongly. He's got over the rearing and running around like a nutter and is now behaving again but he's occasionally throwing hissy fits especially in the morning when you 1st go to put his head collar on he aims to stand on your toes, and once its on his nose he then tries to bite your knees. He's not backed as he's still got a lot of growing to do. He's worked and handled daily, he's also stabled to make sure he has a set routine and gets loads of human work. He's thought to be a caspian arab cross welshie. My partner also has found riley kicks him out of the school if they're turned out in the school this includes barging and biting. He doesn't behave like this with me. He is responsive to lead but can be a little inpatient. He's very very clever as well which he will use in negative ways if he'll get his own way.
He came to me as a rescue and was a mess, he's my pride and joy so ideas guys as he can't be happy throwing hissy fits.
