no as long as you take your time.
The main rule of thumb is walk before you run start by long reining (long lines) lunging get your horse listening to you and reward him her when she has done well and allways leave a lesson on a good note as your horse will rember the good times.
And if you have a harness lunge your horse with a bit of harness at a time the saddle then the backstrapand crupper then the briching then the collar and races you can attach thm to the briching straps and your horse can feel the briching on her quaters.
And can feel the collar.
