Disrespect is disrespect. That same gelding I referenced earlier does all of that and more. Yet still has the nerve to pin his ears and turn his butt. This spring he's going to have a big wake up call.

For over a year I did NOT ride him unattended, too much can go wrong with babies. He had the best temperament, and was easy as pie, but there's still that chance. I'm now 24, and I still seek the guidance of my grandmother and may even be sending the brat out for a 60 day refresher this year. I've been around horses and barrel racing all my life but I can still admit when I need a trainer or guidance.

I know when I need help. I have got that trainer out to help me, and still ask her questions, she comes out when I need her. I am wanting to do Breezes training myself, because I will be the one riding her.

I don't see the point of having your horse go to a trainer when they are first being broke if it is going to be you riding it, because you need to get them to realise that they have to respect YOU. At least if you have a knowledge. If you don't, well, get a broke horse, not one that will have to be broke.

Do you get what I am saying? I am saying overall, I know when I need someone to help, but I will be doing the training myself, with guidence when needed.

I know what you are saying. I know disrespect is disrespect. I am saying, Breeze has respect for me, but will have off days. Mainly when she does this, is when it is windy, snowing, really cold, or after she just ate.

I like your attitude....it's changed and matured a lot since we first 'met'. Keep up the learning, you can never learn enough

And by "does all of that and more" I mean:
Completely bomproof
been there done that
Yields front and hind quarts
Stops
Jogs in hand
Leads perfectly
Gives feet when asked
Stands nicely
Side passes
Stands perfect for the farrier
Yields to leg pressure, etc.

He does everything I ask and more. But again, feels the need to pin his ears and turn his butt and glare when I groom/tack him

Trust me, I've been your age and felt the same way. I also know that everyone has to start somewhere, but I also think that ALL horses should have experiences with other people and be ridden by other people. Yes, my gelding is mine and I am the one who rides him. But I do not have the capabilities to turn him into more than a trail horse/mid level barrel horse and while at your age I felt I could do more, I now realise I cant. I simply do NOT have the experience, even now 5 years later. He has some holes in his training that I do not know how to fix, mainly because at that age I was c.ocky and thought I could do it all. Boy was I wrong! Trainers are a GOOD thing.

That is something you will need to work on then, just like I am working on lunging with Breeze. Every horse is different.

Forgot to say that except when I come with the saddle he's fine or else I start swinging with my foot because my hands are holding the saddle

I know trainers are a good thing. I will probably get a trainer out for Breeze also, for a refesher when she is broke. By that I am saying, if you don't have the knowledge or the guidense to do it yourself while breaking, you should get an older horse.

I do have the knowledge to break a horse, BUT with guidence. I will be getting someone out, I am positive of that, to instruct me and tell me what I am doing wrong when I break Breeze, but I will still be the one on her.
