Smash, as you've dealt with similar, im curious how you dealt with the horse, you may have some great advice & info being shared always helps. What did you do when your colt had a go at you in the stable (at the SEC), breaking bones in your hand/wrist? Although you were injured, did adrenaline kick in & did you discipline the colt, or did you retreat? Serious question as when my filly did the "back leg dancing" at her second show, i didnt touch her with the whip, i didnt do anything except wait (but growled) for her stupid nonsense to stop. I do wonder now whether i should of disciplined her firmly or let her get over it herself? I think if i cracked her with the whip, she probably would of had a "weanling princess meltdown". However, she's perfect at home. I had people tell me i should of shanked her hard or cracked her once, good & firm. I honestly dont know how i feel on that.
