So I was wondering what is the first step you take? He listens pretty good to a bit, but still needs more work. (I usually don't even work with a bit, just a rope halter and some make-shift reins. My trainer has a bitless bridle that I ocassionally will use.)
I'm just sort of lost. I don't really have any harnesses yet, nor do I have a cart. (My dad and I are planning on building one that will fit my horse well. I'm fairly certain there wouldn't be a cart that would fit him perfectly unless it was custom made, which would cost a buttload if made by someone else. My dad has plenty of experience making things, no worries.) So I just need suggestions as to what I could practice to warm up for this.
