Let me get this straight....the horse kicked the fire out of you....and you don't want to come down on him as he is a sweet boy and loves cuddles.
Elaine.....this is a 7 month old horse who will grow into a full grown 1000lb animal who will kill you out of survival. This is not a lapdog. I would take a training stick into the stall with me and the next time the horse turned it's butt to me...I would whack it on the butt. I won't tolerate a horse kicking out at me..no matter the age.
