You found a solution that works for you not the horse. I don't see how he hasn't broke the cross ties and gone mad... Like others said, Its a matter of time before he starts kicking or pushing you into the wall.
Watch your back !

Everyone else has it right. You've done nothing but put him in a tighter box (in a manner of speaking). It's only a matter of time before he goes after you again. This time it'll probably be worse.

Turn out will more than likely help, the more the better. Maybe a diet change. And definitely a vet check to make sure there isn't a pain issue.

thats no solution, thats a crutch.

...and one POed horse.....

also why in the heck did you take off his halter while he was walking into a stall like that? its VERY easy for him to turn and get you again! also you really should be leading horses into their stalls. i know a lot of people do it by turning them loose...whatever, im just saying that one little spook can send them flying into their stall and a whack on the hip. now you have possible injury, AND possible (probable) stall runner.

THIS HORSE NEEDS MANNERS! Everone is right who says signs will not work they won't. He will know if you are afraid of him! This doesn't help and I understand why you are afraid, but if you just cover the behavior up it will get worse and next time it will be more life threating. I am glad to hear that you got back on but stop letting this horse push you around. So if you need to stop riding for a month to re teach ground manners do it. Riding sometimes what the horse needs, it needs to know who is in charge. Is this horse on grain if so I would stop that to especially if stalled all day it is energy that he doesn't need. If you can turn him out to pasture do it too. GOOD LUCK!
