I've ben working with a haflinger pony 3yrs old and a greenie! I get him out and lunge him every other day. I walk him out the door on a lead (kinda tight or he gets flighty) walk him to the middle and stand. Take his lead off, lunge him and make him come in and place the lead back on then attempt a lunge on a lead! This usually ends up as him turnin into me...crowding and stepping on my toes...which in return gets runs some more. I can't get him to stay out away from me. He turns into me on his front feet and won't turn on his back feet...he does know how he just won't on a lead. Just want to know how is a good way to improve this and/or change it. Another thing I've notice is walk him on a lead, getting looser if he behaves (don't push or crowd me) and when I give him about 14inches...he rears and attempts to run! He got me in the back today with a knee on the way up...her in return ran some more.
Sorry for the novel but open to try any and all suggestions and thanks for the advice!
