I used to ride Frisk alllll the time a few years ago, before I had to stop riding. I recently restarted a few months ago, and I had Frisk recently again for my lesson. He has always been extremely bad tempered, but he got better after I had been riding him a few months.
He is soooo girthy. Don't even think about trying to put on the saddle when someone isnt holding his head or he isnt tied up, he spins around so fast and snaps his head out like a snake. He will bite, he isn't just trying to scare you. He also doesnt like his hooves being picked. And it isnt just in the stall, try to adjust his girth in the ring or even while on him and be prepared to move fast.
He is also mean to other horses, he has no friends in the field and don't even think about leading your horse past him when he is in a stall. Everyone is always like, "Uh oh, here comes Frisk", and grabs their cross tied horses and drags them to the sides of the aisle while Frisk's leader sprints past so as not to give him time to kick the horses.
He is good to humans when not being tacked, and he has no problem with being untacked, or having the saddle or bridle put on. It's just the girth and anytime he thinks you are reaching for the girth, like when you pull down the stirrups or roll them up.
Is there some way I can teach him to stop? He really is a great riding horse (if you ride light, otherwise he tries to buck you off) and it makes me sad to see everyone terrified of him, even though he does deserve his reputation. I think my barn owner would let me work with him to try to "fix" him, I just need to know how to do it. Sorry for the essay, thanks in advance!
