disrespectful

  1. Horse Training
    I’ve recently started riding a rather excitable (or rather, distractable) TB who is not only very anxious and unrelaxed under saddle but also quite disrespectful on the ground. He has no regard for personal space — when leading him he walks much to close and/or ahead of me, and when grooming or...

    I have a young (3yr old) OTT SB mare who I have as a ridden project. She is very sweet once caught, and is respectful on the lead as I have done a fair amount of perelli with her. But, she has the worst paddock manners I've ever seen! I think the issue is just that she is extremely mareish...
  3. Horse Training
    I have a lazy appendix quarter horse gelding (2 yrs old) that prefers to sleep and eat grass all day, and never go more than 5 miles per hour when he's in his pasture, unless it's dinner time of course. Very lazy. Also, he's afraid of nothing. Flapping bags/banners in the wind, loud noises...
  4. Horse Training
    My horse, Blue, has grown up with very bad manners that his old owner didn't handle well. Him and I are growing a strong bond, but he still has very disrespectful manners that are difficult to handle on my own. A lot of people will tell me to have a trainer help, which I am working on, but I'd...
  5. Horse Training
    I have a 19 yr old Warmblood mare that I have had for 3 yrs and she still has absolutely no respect for me. When feeding she gets impatient and kicks out at me. She is kept in a 2 acre pasture and paddock along with 2 other horses, a Belgian mare and QH gelding, all the same age. I have watched...
  6. Horse Training
    Okay I have this 4 year old gelding. I've had him since birth. He is very disrespectful! He runs over you ever time you enter the pasture, he starts fights with the other horses, knocks you over while trying to feed! He'll follow you when your in the pasture, but he walks right up on you and...
  7. Horse Talk
    Okay, so just lately I've been a little down. I lost my little mare in a tragic road accident (I shan't, mainly because I can't bear to, go into details) and my other mare has been on her own for 3 weeks. In that time, as is probably normal, she has become very spooky. But, I thought when I...
  8. Horse Training
    Okay so I am working with my aunt's horse. She is a very busy lady (has 4 horses, and is always traveling, and is getting older, just turned 63) and in the past couple years has not had time to give her horses the attention they need. I am going to start working on her gelding (who is the...
  9. Horse Training
    So I am leasing a horse and this horse is a little disrespectful. I have been working on some ground work excersises but have a question about yielding the hindquarters. So I put pressure on her hind end by swinging the lead rope in the air near it and putting eye contact on the hindquarters...
  10. Horse Training
    Sometimes when I am grooming my horse, my horse pushes his head twords me and nudges me/ pushes on me. Is he just being nice or is he doing that to invade my space and being disrespectful?
