Stubbornness is not typical to the TWH, I have found the breed to be extremely willing and traininable...my mare would walk directly into a wall if I asked her and is all heart under the saddle.

Of course there will be some exceptions the same as any breed, but I have often found, when I think my mare is being stubborn...i am usually asking her wrong.

Looking forward to pictures!

Agreed. Most of the walking horses I've ridden-- bar a lesson horse that would take every chance to be lazy, have put all of their effort into a job. There's a three year old at my trainer's who is just the most easy-going, willing little guy. Even when he spooks, he is easy to reel back into work.

Have you tried to upload them to photobucket and then copy the html code, then paste it into the thread?

Is this your first horse?

My TWH mare is the most laid back, sweet tempered horse I have ever owned. Her heart is as big as Texas and if I asked her to walk off a cliff she would. They are great horses and are often recommended for beginners and kids because of their forgiving nature.
OP, looking forward to seeing pics when you can post them :)

Hmmmm.... I've Trained many TWH's and know that they do not have a " stubborn" side to them...they actually look to thier rider's for confindence and play off of that...a very willing breed..As well as a Saddlebred, a very willing horse...both are of a forgiven nature as stated above.... I wonder, are you afraid of him ? He can possibly be working off of your fear ?.of course there are acception's to every rule, but, personally after training/breaking a lot of them.. I've to come across it. The worst horse that I've trained and it too over 6 mos to break and train to be ridden was a massive BS Paint Gelding.... Disco will go down in history for me :)
