Question Returning to riding

Hi all
I have recently got myself a new horse to return to riding. He is a 6 year old 17hh ott thoroughbred gelding. He is a very friendly boy and reasonably quiet,however he has buddied up with my husbands new horse (also an ott thoroughbred gelding).
I have always had 14-15hh ASH or qaurterhorses so for now his height is a little intimidating
Fatty has been out of work for a while and I would love any advice on how to bring him back into work and prepare him for some local ag/hack shows. He is lazy and I let him get away with a lot especially letting him in my space!
Whilst I attended pony club for a good 10 years my more recent riding has been trail rides and stock work so hacking is new to me!
I live in a small remote community in Australia so lessons are unavailable to me at the moment.
I would love any helpful advice on starting out all over again including tips for regaining confidence. Thanks

There are some superb trainers on this site and I imagine they will probably guide you toward a good learning system (such as recommending a trainer who has published information available to do "self-training" at home or a DVD set which is full of positive information that is user-friendly).
What are your feelings on Buck Branneman? I really respect his training philosophy, and it is built upon the older teachings of Tom Dorrance and others; (Ray ... last-name-is-evading me!! Sooo sorry!).
I would suggest people of that. "ilk' if you are wanting good "respect/groundwork basics" to start off with. Just my opinion!
Great news on your new horse and wishing you the very best of luck! :0)
