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)
