    What to do?????

    I have a yearling that will be two on may second. Well every now and then she gets real stupid. She gets very excited and when she does she'll sometime's kick's out at ya and then take's off. Sometimes she will run right up to you, you will have to throw you hands up because who knows what she is thinking or not thinking. Just seems like she has no ground manners, and my husband just thinks it okay. I often hear from him " she only does it sometimes?" well I don't ever want to see it. What can I do with her before she hurts someone.

    Sorry to sound harsh, but I'd bring the whip or broom with me and every time she approaches me like that would just let her run into it or may be even add some power to it so she would "run into" hard enough to realize it's not fun. That's VERY dangerous behavior, and she's young now. It's not going to "go away" magically, but can just get worse.

    Maybe you could do the Parelli 7 Games with her. That teaches respect of your requests and respect of your space. It's all about safety.

    Yes I agree with Spirithorse. The 7 games seem to work VERY well with young horses, they pick up on it much faster than older ones.

    Funny you should post this right after one of my 2 year olds kicked me :( I've been doing the keep out of my space stuff with them since they were babys. Neither of them has done any kicking/running around me in at least a year. She was kicking at another horse and I got in the way I guess. Moral of the story is don't be stupid around them like me Carry the whip, stick or anything with you when you are around them. Especially if they are being goofy to begin with. When they get too close without permission back them off of you in any way possible. It really hurts when the kick ya, honest

    Thanx agian. I had my husband read your responses and I think it might of sunk into his head on what I have been telling him :roll: . I have the parelli 7 games, I have been just waiting for better weather but I can't wait to try them on her.
