    Exclamation I guess he wants to be the leader....

    So, today we were on our way home from our ride when one of my two dogs got in front of Andy. Usually he just gives them a warning and they move out of the way. But today she (the dog) didn't move so he got mad, pinned his ears back and tried to hit her with his front hooves, rearing up a little and gave a few small bucks. I was totally unprepared but stayed on. By this time she was walking behind him and he went right back to normal and calmly walked home like nothing happened. Any tips for what I should do when he does this and how to get him use to not being in front all the time? He and dogs get along fine normally. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Take those reins and smack him good and hard when pulling a stunt like that. You have to let him know that kind of attitude just not acceptable whether he's annoyed or not.

    As an aside, had a gelding this last weeken trying to stomp a butterfly that was drafting him and kept flitting out front. Saw him try and stomp it 3x before the butterfly finally fell behind.
