I'm only 21, and even though I've been riding since I was 3, I'm sure there are even more things I can learn. I've never owned such a hot horse, so I am new to their nature. I just need help, not criticism please.
Sure! I was around 18 when I started at the track. Lost two horses on the way to the track on my first day working there! Buggers ran all the way home!!!!
I was well and truly baptized into a culture of serious horse husbandry.

I think if you take him out, and ignore him as much as you can, pretend like 'oh, just another day with frantic Freddy' haha and just soothe him....low and soft....and when he does stop his jigging and dancing, say low and soft, goooood booooy and give him a little scratch on the neck. He will need to act like its no big deal and just help him bring him self down again.
I remember humming while riding trackwork and humming in the birdcage!
