    What happened? How can I fix it?

    Riley has ben kept in his own pasture with one other horse until a few days ago. We were making huge strides with his standing still and accepting the bit as I bragged about on here. Lol. But yesterday when I went out there he was out with the other horses (no biggie there) but he acted like a complete knob when I went to get him....refusing to walk, Kept pushing me and just being a butt. I don't what happened I feel like we are back to square one... Could it be because he's with the other horses now and feels the need to test me as a result.?? Or is it that he's finally comfortable here and wants to see what he can get away with?? Im out there everyother day for at least an hour so he's used to me being around.

    Probably just testing you. Maybe he's feeling good. Every horse has a good day and a bad day. What did you do when he was doing this?

    I don't let him crowd and be in my space and when he refused to walk I made him back up and made him do a circle and then he was fine. It was just odd. Since he's my first horse I've been second guessing everything I know lol. Just paranoid to do the wrong thing I guess.

    He could be testing you more because he is more comfortable around you and the barn. My mare was a perfect angel when I first bought her with no apparent bad habits. Now I find that she is cinchy and will do anything to get out of work! She is getting much better now. When horses begin to feel comfortable their true personalities come out.

    Your going to come across all sorts of bad things. Its good you don't let him crowd you and you make him move his feet. Don't worry about making a mistake. Its bound to happen. That's how we learn. You're not afraid are you?

    That's good. Questions are great! Its the answer that can be hard. Especially when everyone here doesn't know the other persons situation or the horse. I don't have family that knows the answers either. That's why I'm either watching trainers on tv or looking it up. Where are you from?
