More alpha?

Woo i haven't been on here in years!!

I still have my mini April, but finally got another anglo arab last week.

I'm not sure if there is any tips or tricks, my mini is super super submissive,, barely pins her ears or anything.

Is there any way to make a horse more alpha towards another horse?

Reason is, he likes to sort of move her around and she just listens to him.

Any way to make her more confident?

I'm guessing not- that's just the way she is, but it would be interesting if anyone has any ideas
None has a greater understanding, nor devotion than a horse.

I don't know if this REALLY worked, or if it just made ME feel better ... but between Jacques the old man and Reggie the young brat, I could see that Reggie was going to be a bully-ish bossy boy. So I made a conscious effort to always do everything with Jacques first, everything from the first "hello" to feeding time, to getting let back out to pasture. Reggie would be ignored while I was working with Jacques, even when R was doing something obnoxious like pawing for attention. They got along OK in pasture, but I don't know if any of this psychology actually helped their pasture relationship or not.
