Anyone that has horses has experienced fear related behavior. This fear can be displayed by avoidance, escape, or aggression. Aggressive behavior is sometimes not recognized as fear. If you can not escape then the solution is to fight back. Some horses have a greater propensity for behavior issues in new or different environments. This may include the show ring or a field trial. These behaviors are dealt with a various techniques including trust, trauma or drugs.
