ahh the wonderful kickin habbit! well yes i do have some advice. i had to deal with that problem with mesa when she was little. basically the ONLY way i could get her to stop kicking at me was to pop her. and i mean i had to pop her hard so that she would relat kickin to somthing bad. anything that a horse dose bad you have to relate it do somthing bad or somthing they dont like to do. with mesa the only thing i could do was just pop her. you have to stay consistant. wut ever makes him kick attempt to deal with that. for example mesa didnt like her feet to be touch so she would kick so i touched her feet and everytime she would kick i would say mesa no and pop her and i would do it untill she litterally stoped kicking for that day. now the next day they will usually try kickin again so you have to deal with it everyday. and it can be a very slow proccess. it just depends on how fast the horse realizes if he kicks he gets hurt. now when i say pop them dont think i mean beat the horse bc there is a big difference but its just like a kid who gets in trouble they get a woopin so its the same concept. and if poping him dosnt work then try somting else. the main thing is when they do somthing bad associate it with somthing they hate or atleast dont like so aventally they will realize that if they kick then they get poped and so theyll stop unless they dont mind being poped then you have to try somtihng else. it took about a week of constantly working with mesa to get her to stop, now you can do wutever you wont to her and she will not kick for anything. and if she dose act like shes going to all i have to do is raise my hand and say mesa no and shell stop.

now i also no that when training other people horses you cant always use ur own way of traing on thos horses, so if you cant pop the horse then youll have to try somting else with him.

i hope all of that made sense its esaier to say it then type it all! well let me know if you didnt understand anything or you have any questions. and keep me updated on the training!!!
