After having had a murgese stallion for over 20 years and given up riding after his death, I overcome my doubts and fears and got myself a nice baroque style friesian gelding. He is not yet 6, and very "unexercized", never having had a properly caring owner.
But he seems very gentle, willing, and quite "unhorsy" in some attitudes.
I would welcome any tips or suggestion if someone knows the breed.
I ride english and used a 4 reins byte on my old horse, but this one seemed to find it a bit too much for his mouth and I got a portuguese byte, which has still 4 reins but only one piece for him to manage.
I got the impression he needs very gentle touch and listen to voice.
He startles a bit. I live in the country and would like to do just a bit of working in the rectangle and riding outside with me.
We have no equine company, apart from my horse's son, which has never been ridden because of wobbler, and is a bit jealous now.
Welcome any advice! Thank you.
