Why does my horse threaten to kick me when I brush her flanks ? 🧐 any ideas ?

Could be she is hurting somewhere and being defensive. Or you could be using too stiff of a brush/strokes for her liking. Or she could be playing a dominance game with you. Or, she could have ulcers. Or, she could be going into heat. Could be lots of things.....


mares tend to be more ticklish than geldings


Perhaps she's just ticklish. Perhaps she has a sore spot that hurts when you brush it. Perhaps she's colicking, and needs a vet. I have lots of ideas; top three presented in order of likelihood.
