    New barrel horse

    So I bought myself a new barrel horse after a few months of waiting. He's a 2 year old palomino gelding bout 14 hands tall. He is broke broke broke but doesn't like to be tied up or left alone in a stall. What can I do about these problems?

    He does not like to be left alone in a stall or does not like to be left tied and alone in a stall?

    If it is the just leaving him alone in a stall, I have no idea except to turn him out on pasture all the time and maybe do something fun in the stall, like feeding him grain so he associates the stall with something good...

    He doesn't like to be left tied to be saddled and he doesn't like to be left in a stall alone, if he has another horse nextto him he's fine but I can't leave the horses that's next to him inside all of the time.

    Time to grow up.

    He's gotta learn there isnt always going to be someone. The more you tie him by himself, the better he'll be.

    I usually tie em up with the blocker ring while I clean stalls. Let him wiggle, complain... don't care as long as he doesnt kill himself or pull the lead through. It'd be even better to be able to use the tie ring on him in the stall. (so if he gets loose, he goes nowhere)

    Same with saddling. The more you do it, the better he'll be. I'll normally just tack up and untack until they don't see a reason to wiggle anymore. It gets boring, but eventually the horse will stop.

    Big ditto!

    He will best get over those problems if you make him do them. You can leave him tied up and saddled while you do things around the yard and in sight of him. That way it is like he is "alone" but you are near enough that you can help him if he doesn't work himself into a bind (which he really shouldn't if you have a proper tie ring and strong post/rope).

    Agreed! He needs to grow up.

    Ditto to all the above. I was wondering how exactly a 2 year old could be 'broke broke broke' especially on barrels. Eep.
