Hi guys, I have a high strung 2 year old colt who has been working on harness for the past few months. On Sunday we are going to buy a cart and my dad thinks I am going to die from him. Well when we bought the harness I might have believed him because he was 1 then and did not know the controls and always tried to over power you. Well I took care of that. I slowly thought him the comandes and now he knows them nicely, and for the over powering I put a bit on the harness. No he doesn't dare try pulling away because of a pull on his jaw. Now he has manners with the harness but the only problem I have is he rubs his head on every thing so it is running the bridle. Any suggestions?
My dad also thinks he will take off with me in it and I won't be able to stop him. Once again, the bit. Times I would have lost contol I have been able to stop him within about 10 feet. Any thoughts?
Last I would like to shoe him in jumping next year or cart in 2 years because he is good in both.(he once jumped his run ins barn gate with was 3 and a 1/2 feet high I did not know he did it til he ran past me so he did not hit it and he will not jump it again.) I live in mid Michigan and need someone to help me for little or nothing. ( I know it probably wont happen if they could do it for money, but I really would like it) just let me know if you know anyone who is willing to come to my house and do it.
