Hello, I need help! I am currently working with a horse who has not been worked or messed with much of her life (She is five or so now). My biggest problem is when I am doing groundwork with her and try to ask her to ask her to move away from pressure, like do a turn on hindquarters, she pins her ears and will move but she clearly doesn’t like it. This sometimes will turn into her trying to bite my hand or kick me.
She gets most aggressive when I try to send her away on the lunge. She will pin her ears and won’t move. Then, if I keep asking or press harder she will bare her teeth at me and turn towards me or may try to kick me. There are rare occasions I can get her to lunge around me but she only walks and if I ask her to trot she will turn in towards me with pinned ears and try to bite me, sometimes kick me.
