Any advice

Well on march third I bought Bell my TWH. Our neighbor came over to ride her and she has had 9 years of expierence with horses and never met one like Bell. She rode up to the garage Turned her around then IT happened. Bell tokk off to the barn as fast as she could not even the bit could stop her Deidra yelled and pulled on the bit until she fell Bell kept going until she saw the barn was close she then skidded to a stop and walked over to the barn door. Bell is barn sour and I need some advice to break her from it she is 4 years old. I'm a beginner rider but tough enough to take a bad fall I flew over my other horses head and landed on my back sliding down a hill and got up still holding my left rein I've only had 2 falls and nothing broke from them but I think ridding Bell could cost me more that just injuries especially on gravel driveways. Any advice will be helpful and gratefully apreciated!

Get the trainer to help you with the horse, and take some lessons before you get hurt!

Chase sent me to the ER yesterday and Deidra doesnt want to ride Bell as she doesnt obey to the bit. She has a temper and doesnt leave the barn. And I'm worried for Deirdas kids they love to come and ride and the only horse they want to ride is Bell they no longer want to ride Chase since he's thrown me twice and no one likes leo cause he's hardly even green broke. And Deidra can't ride for a while her horse she just sold threw her and broke her arm.

What part of, 'get a trainer before you get seriously maimed or dead' didn't you understand?

I'm taking riding lessons but I'm probably going to get my teacher's husband to ride as he's dealt with worse barn sour horses. Jet was a horse he broke from barn sour and you couldnt get on that horse to leave the barn or he would rear up and turn back to the barn. He has alot of expeirence and I'm getting a new bridle and bit as I only have a nylon headstall with boons mane as a tassel by the ear peice the bit on it is a baided bar but my new bridle is black leather with a full straight bar with a curb chain which is what she's used to she is also a tight rein riding horse as she's very high strung my dad wants to get someone to ride her until she's a little calmer but right now I'll stick to the ground until riding lessons start back up.

Green Broke
You need to stop allowing children to ride dangerous horses - period. I don't care what they "want" - they need to hear the word NO.

Green Broke
Honestly, sounds as if no one involved with these horses has a clue of how to handle them - and that the handling that is being done is likely a big contributor to the issues they are exhibiting.

Mac, I seriously think there's something wrong mentally with this OP, or they're just trying to play us all for fools.

NONE of the things this person posts make much sense, and they don't address any of the issues people have been pointing out. They're just random stuff, like her black bridle with the curb bit, and other senseless things.

She may as well be shouting SQUIRREL!, or I LIKE PIE!

Just something to keep in mind as you continue to ride... A bit is only an aid and tool to use to communicate with your horse. No bit by itself will stop 1000 lbs of muscle that doesn't want to stop.

LOL. I'm not sure what other posts you're referring to, but this made me guffaw loudly.

Anyway, OP. I bought a greenbroke three year old that ended up bucking me off. I was lucky to come away with just a broken ankle and ribs. I know of which I speak. This horse has the potential to kill you - easily. Stop making excuses. Sell the horse. Get yourself a more suitable mount. Also, since you're a green rider, ditch the curb bit. Ride in a snaffle. You're probably wreaking havoc on their mouths.
