Undisciplined behaviour can be a result of training problems, painful problems, emotional problems or some medical problems.

Once medical problems are ruled out, other sources of pain should be investigated. A chiropractic assessment can tell quickly whether there is a saddle problem, tack problem or skeletal problem (including the teeth and jaw).

Fear of pain can result in some animals shying away from something that reminds them of a previous hurt - from cruelty, a badly fitting harness, saddle or tack, another animal who has hurt them, or even an object that has scared them in the past.

Other animals show self-protective behaviour, trying to guard against another hurt, that may appear as aggression.
