I think people would A.) At least like to know the country you live in ;)
And B.) They would probably expect a small fee for their troubles, especially if the falabella is as much of a bugger as some of the ones I have seen!

But good on you for at least trying to find a trainer. Due to a falabella's small size, some people think they are harmless and training is unnecessary. Get a kick from one though and he's off to a trainer before you can say ow!

Again, it would be helpful to know where you're located so people could suggest trainers in your area.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

Don't put it past him. An untrained two year old especially as you make it sound like its a he-who may or may bot be castrated- could quite easily kick you just because he's cheeky! I wouldn't trust him just yet... Not at that age.

Complete red flag for me. A falabella's kick HURTS. Like really hurts. Trust me, I have been kicked once by one, and it is no laughing matter, the way you put it. The sharp hooves can slice your skin as easily as a carving knife, and their feet are rock solid. To give yourself a fair idea, go out to the garage, get a sledge hammer and wallop your leg as hard as you can. That's about the pain you can expect if you get kicked....
So you expect this horse to have bad manners? You expect to get kicked? Gosh, you need a trainer, yesterday. I'm sorry, but a falabella can be just as dangerous as a bigger horse, and you need to respect that.

Not to freak you out, but this is my kick from a falabella sized miniature horse...30" tall at the time. She double barrelled me when she didn't want to stop grazing and I was stupid enough to walk sort of behind her. She spun and kicked...I assure you it hurt.

It went much further than you can see too, and was worse. This part is from one of the hooves. This was 5 days after it happened.



Try to stay strict with him and never let him flatten his ears at you, turn his butt to train him like a normal horse. I suggest not keeping him in your house because it is unnatural for him. As far as tricks, a trainer can probably help you teach them to him in a way that doesn't make him dangerous. Sometimes when horses are taught tricks they become dangerous, such as when rearing on command.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

You do not want to take a bet that a kick from him would not huert.

I have known a vet be off work for nearly a year when he received a nasty kick from a 2 day old pony foal. It broke his femur in a very nasty way and an adult femur bone is tougher than concrete.

No horse or pony is designed to live in a house. They need to be moving around, trickle feeding and this means constantly pooping. No doubt you can get diapers for them but that is just cruel in my experience,

Let a horse be a horse and not try to make it a dog.
