An excerpt from "Your Foal: Essential Training for the Young Horse":
It wouldn't be unheard of for the horse to signal that he's tired of you sometime during today's prescribed exercise by trying to give you a good kick. Until recently, his days consisted of lying about, suckling, pooping and watching "The View." Now you're putting him to work! Be careful to stand clear (near the point of his shoulder, slightly off to the side). If he kicks (or even thinks about it as signaled by a threatening raise of a hind leg) scream your bloody head off and chase him away. Let him know immediately and in no uncertain terms that this is not acceptable behavior. (Same goes for nips.) He'll run around a bit, but you just need to bring him back to you as you're been practicing and begin again.
