    kicks as he runs off....
            I've never felt this was something to require "correction", because
    it is just high spirits, so I try to prevent it.   What I  do is: 1) Simply
    turn the horse to me - facing away from the direction he wants to go,
    unhalter him but not release him (rope around his neck), then push him away
    with my hand - and when he starts to turn, get out of the way.  Or: 2)
    Depending on the gate, take the horse through the gate, turn back, and with
    me behind the gate, unlatch him and let him loose.
