I recently purchased a Stallion he is a 10 year old Miniature. He has been in a harem situation for a few years and is really hard to handle. I am looking for any tips on how to get him to be easier to handle. He will rear at you and come at you on the line when frustrated or try to drag you around.

The trouble is with having a breeding stallion is we usually only handle them when we want to breed or tease them. My 3 yr old welsh stallion has a tendency to rear and strike out, not necassarily at me but still can be very scary. I make sure I lunge him in the round pen 3-4 times a week in a bridle, side reins and a sursingle or saddle. I work on voice commands, walk, trot, a little cantering and most important, whoa which they learn easier after they get a little tired. It will probably take several work outs for him to settle into working and not being a jerk. If I lunge him at the trot for about 20 minutes before I collect him he is the perfect gentleman other wise he is really bad.
My stallions live in the same barn as the mares and geldings, so everytime I walked them out of their stall they would get all hyped up. So when I started their work program I put a little Vicks on their nose when I would take them out to work. Once they got into their program I was able to gradually quit using the Vicks.

Work him, Good luck.
