Is this the same welsh pony that you can't catch?

This pony needs to learn some manners and fast, before you get hurt.

Have you had or dealt with horses before? From reading your other posts, you seem (very) young.

Stand ground tied? That takes some training.

If the issue is your horse not standing tied, there can be other issues you need to work out.

What is it the horse is doing exactly?

Is this also the same pony whose face is swollen and folks have said it wasn't the electric fence and perhaps a vet should be called?

Is the swelling still there? Was a vet called out?

If this pony is on your parents farm, who in your family or family friends has a lot of horse experience to help you.

It is sounding more and more that you do need hands-on guidance that you cannot get from a forum before you get hurt and the pony ends up hurt and/or with some very manners:-)

How did I miss all of this-it sounds like a hot mess!

Waiting for answers, OP.......

Honestly, I am beginning to wonder if troll, or someone that even has a horse is on here, as just seems to be making threads for drama?

Guys, I just checked the OP's profile. It appears that he/she has been banned.

My horse always had a big issue with standing still, but I tied him up for a while and checked up on him, and he pawed and threw a little hissy fit (I'M NOT ABUSING HIM. It was a safe post and I watched him where he couldn't see me) but got over it. Ever since, when I ask him to stand for grooming he does it without question. I don't tie him, or ground tie., I just throw the lead rope over his neck and brush him in his paddock and he stands. ( Note: He is super high energy so this was a major accomplishment)
