I totally agree. I get weird looks when I tell people I prefer riding & showing a stud. The old man set such a great example and got me hooked.

Look forward to hearing how he gets along Sophie!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Thanks guys :3

I lunged him then rode him last night. My trainer has tooth ache so couldn't be there, but her other half was.

I reckon they are completely smitten with him.

ANYONE who has any tips on handling stallions please let me know!
They have stallions, and are showing me, but they have jobs too ;D And I don't want him to have to get the snip because I've not been a proper 'leader' around him.

Last night he didn't get his winky out once when I was grooming him, huge improvement!

Riding him.. I was on my own.. I had absolutely no worries getting on him, he was good as gold.

Walk and trot, he moves with so little effort gah! I am in love with this little guy, so so much.

My trainers other half really likes him, and has made comments about him that I have never heard him say about any horse.

More pics this weekend for confo and the like ;D

Thanks guys ;D

My trainers never comment on horses. Ever.
Unless its something negative. Not in a nasty way! I just don't think they want our heads to explode.

However, they haven't said anything about him to me, but they won't shurrup telling people how lovely he is.

That reminds me.. I must get my ownership papers back off them before they decide to steal him D:

Stallions are very concerned with territory, and their place in it. Typical stallion behavior is to acknowledge ANY poop pile, sniff it up, and then deposit their own poop right on top as a way to claim dominance.

They need to ALWAYS know where the line is drawn in the sand. Don't tolerate any rudeness. Just make sure you are 100% consistent with anything you do with a stallion. Never let that line's place change..just because you don't feel like addressing something right NOW.

And any correction/punishment must be FAIR. Stallions get really put out if the correction is too much bigger than the crime.

It sounds like I am anthropomorphizing a stallion, but this has been my experience, and I have shown many of them with temperaments all the way across the board.

I just set up a thread in training ;D

My trainer would not allow me to sit back. She and her other half have been eagle eye watching me, and they've said im doing everything right now. I want to set the rules, but teach him the correct way, there are major gaps in basic training, but other things he excels at!
