So there are some horses at my boyfriends barn that haven't been handled. It's a POA mare and her pintaloosa son...they will let you pet all over them and it's obvious the mare has had training at some point in her life, but the son is just a complete....jerk. I was petting him and he would be just fine then pin his ears and try and take little nips at me. He was acting like a 5 year old bratty kid. Yes, he is cut, but it wouldn't surprise me if he isn't even halter broke. Personally, I wouldn't allow that at my barn, seems like too big of a hazard, plus the fact their feet haven't been trimmed in years I'm sure..
My question is, how do you work with a full size adult horse, that already has its set ways and has never been disciplined or trained by humans? What are te chances of him getting aggressive?
No this isn't something I am actually considering doing, I'm just wondering.
