I like young horses, I got a yearling so I could start somewhere. This is the first time training a young horse, although the very first horse I actually worked with was a weanling, when I was about 6. It was a 4h halter group and I had a weanling, along with about 5 other people. We trained them to be halter broke, lead, tie, touch ears, nose, pick up feet, go over wooden bridges, be caught, etc. The kids did it all, with only guidence from the leaders. I would not call it training though, I would call it learning, and experiencing new things.
I got Breeze so I could start somewhere. She is a great horse, but not papered, and I got her for cheap. I wanted a young horse so I could learn from my mistakes, and use them to my advantage in the future. I am hoping Breeze will be my all around horse, but I know for a fact she won't be perfect.
In time I hope to become a better trainer, more educated in horses, and learn from the past. I know I have made mistakes with Breeze, but I have fixed them, some needing help from others.
With all respect, everybody is different, and nobody can change a person, or their actions, apperance, or anything about them with only words.
I am 15 now, I am starting a hopefully successful career in horse training, that will get better down the road. I am looking for as much help as I can get, I am reading books, watching videos, experiencing it myself, talking to trainers, and listening to advice from anyone who knows what it is like to be a 15 year old, whos passion is horses.
