    Just be careful that he doesn't begin to associate going on an open field with having a good gallop around if your uncles friend does that with him
    He needs to learn the opposite
    Wearing a horse out doesn't actually teach them anything
    I've had some real PITA that always wanted to gallop on the same stretch of ground because that's what people had allowed them to do, at a riding school I worked at where the horses always had a canter on one particular field some of them would be leaping, bucking and prancing as soon as their feet touched the grass they got so excited about it

    I'll let the OP answer your own question. This:

    rhosroyalvelvet: A runaway horse in incapable hands is still dangerous no matter how many paragraphs of fluff you want to type up.

    I'm done beating my head against the brick wall now.

    I seriously hope the OP doesn't end up in the emergency room.

    Beau159 I was saying that to another person so here's some advice for you... Stop changing everything around because you're taking stuff from other posts and making it look like there being said about other stuff.

    Jaydee--I'm with you. Wearing a horse out doesn't do anything except make them more fit, unless the tactic (IE-lunging) is used properly and sparingly.

    Trigger, This will work with your horse as long as you remain in the saddle. If he takes off, try to control where he goes and bring him into a big circle, as big as you need but still having some control. Let him keep going until he decides he wants to slow down, only don't let him. Keep him going until he's really puffing and feels like he's dragging an anchor. Only then do you let out a deep breath and relax in the saddle and allow him to stop. He'll be puffing hard but keep him walking even slowly so his muscles don't cramp up. Whenever he's started running there's been no consequence. Now he's found out it resulted in hard work. This usually works after doing this just once.

    Thanks saddlebag I'll try that! I tried that the last time though but I think the only reason I fell off is because he stopped on a kinda steep slope and put his head down and streched the front of him out!(to stop himself) And I went off him!!

    Trained
    Trigger, I was giving you my BEST advice of over 4 decades of riding, training and showing horses, GET HELP! Never, ever say you have had enough lessons, I am one of the top 5 ranked open show riders in my area, I still take lessons because I want a BETTER seat, BETTER position, BETTER everything and I don't ever want to be in a position where if my horse bolts or spooks, I fall off, been there, done that.

    Yearling
    As I'm sure everyone including myself posting on this thread agrees with one another on what would be an effective approach for Trigger123 to take, I feel like repeating the thing is redundant.

    She has a friend in Rhosroyal that obviously knows something we don't, as well as this hefty thread chock full of good advise from caring and concerned fellow horse people, the rest is all up to her own decisions on whether or not she uses it and ultimately it is her horse, her call.

    I wish you good luck and wish you to read all the things others have mentioned to help you (although you might not read it that way, I promise you that it is all good natured HELP) and hope you and your horse Trigger have a better time together in the future. I promise you will learn many things about yourself along the way that only time and maturation can teach.

    Thanks Nenamebo! :)
    Waresbear I'm not saying that I've had enough lessons I'm saying I can't have lessons at the minute.
