I bought my horse knowing he weaved, but didn't plan on putting him in a stall at all, so I didn't think it was a big problem. Well he does it occasionally in his pasture, mainly when he knows people are at the stables, but not giving him attention....so yes his weaving is attention based...human attention, we've tried putting another horse in with him and he still did it.
OTHER than the Vice Breaker (which is WAY to expensive for me at the moment) what are ways that I can teach my horse, Sonny, not to weave? Each time I see him weaving, I yell at him; grab the lunge whip and make him canter around the arena. All is good when I'm there and I'm able to make him work...but he does it alot in his pasture...now usually I can growl at him and he'll trot off, but the ground is occasionally icey and his pasture is on a slight incline....so I don't want to make him go fast in his pasture and have a chance of him falling.
Anyone ever dealt with a weaving horse? Anyway to correct this habit?
No I don't know how it started, since I bought him like that. When no one is there, he usually doesn't do it, but he does if he senses there's someone there.
