There’s an old saying that there are no problem horses, only problem riders. Nevertheless, having a mount that rears, bites, and kicks isn’t ideal, regardless of how it came to have those behavioral issues.

But it begs the question: Are problem horses born or are they made?

We’re talking about horses with a history. They have some baggage. It might be a behavioral issue, like a spooky horse, an anxious horse, or one that chomps the bit. The issue might be showing-related, like a horse that anticipates an announcer’s calls, chips in over trail poles, or refuses fences.

There are challenges associated with retraining, or in some cases rehabilitating, a horse with a particular problem. It takes a lot of patience, technical skill, and a willingness to listen to what the horse is trying to say.
