I have trid all of the advice that yall have given. FYI(not being smarty pants), i went out today and rode him in an egg-but snaffle with training forks. And OH BOY did he do great. walk and trot on loose reins. I walked mostly and did a little troting. And no i do not lie, believe it or not, but i dont lie.

Stick with that eggbutt snaffle. The biggest things I have issues with in this video are your bit - direct reining in a shanked bit is NO-NO! - and your yanking on him like that.

You just really need to go back to square one with a snaffle.

Morganshow11, we wish we could beleive you. But you have lied many times. You said all his problems were fixed, you are working with a trainer, he's half freisan (but still did saddle seat in shows?). You said you no longer jump him with a curb etc.

All these things have turned out to lies

So very true so Morgan show us a video doing all these wonderful things in a snaffle and we may re think our conclusions.

Not that I believe that, but if that's true, why did you lie and say they fixed him?

Hey guys. Quite the challenges, alright? Morgan's actually being quite mature at the moment keeping herself at bay. Let's drop this challenging, shall we?

She's a younger kid. Can't expect everything to be perfect. Lies, maybe, but let's just forget it. NMP.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Youth is not an excuse, but perhaps an explanation - because I have noticed a pattern in not only this post but others, in which you ask for feedback but are only open to hearing the positive. The changing of the story, etc is very much what I tend to get from my daughter (also 13) when she is trying to figure out what answer is most likely to "please" (aka end the conversation) at that moment but then the answer changes/evolves as questions are asked, time passes, etc.
It really boils down to you ARE young and inexperienced. You and, most especially, your horse would greatly benefit from some long-term solid teaching. Right now, neither of you is being served AT ALL by what you are doing. I don't think you want to hurt him or that you want anything but the best for him - but I also don't think you are equipped to make that happen on your own. If what you are doing is at the direction of an instructor, coach, etc, FIND ANOTHER because no good professional would encourage you to ride as you are. As it is right now, the horse and rider I see are not a good match. Something has to give and Rowdy isn't the one with control over that.
