Well theres many things you could do. Start off with the hose off and just rub him with it, once he is comfortable with that turn the water on to a trickle and continue tp rub him and let the water run onto him. Then juat continue to turn the water up a little higher till you can wash him. Do you tie him up? That might also help once he is comfortable with the running water amd such.

I think he's scared of the hose most of all. I tried to tie him up and get him used to the hose and he freaked out.

No dont tie him up just hold his lead rope and rub him with it just like you would a rope rub it on his necs,butt, belly, chest, neck but don't move to a new spot till he stops moving his feet and shows signs of relaxing licking, chewing lowering his head cocking his leg.

Hey, y'all! I'm 16 years old. I've been riding since before I can remember. So, really, I don't know how I got into horses?? My mom told me that they've ALWAYS been my favorite animal. When I was younger, I always shared horses with other people and finally got "my" own horse when I was 8 or 9. Then, my aunt got me into barrel racing... I've finally decided that running barrels is like eating potato chips: its/they're addicting! (and you can't just run once/eat one! lol!)

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Lucky! My first barrel horse was a bucker... he bucked when you asked him to do anything besides reenacting a statue. Although, I only came off of him once. (I lost my stirrup and he kept bucking.) When my aunt was breaking him, he literally played horseshoes with her! (Broke her pelvis, several ribs, who knows what else?? She was on bed rest for a few months.) The only good thing that I can say about that horse was that he made me a better rider. Oh, yeah, a little piece of advice: DON'T kick! It'll make it worse! (I would know I learned that the hard way... smh.)

Yeah I learned kicking a horse out of a bucking fit only works when your in an enclosed area... Otherwise they go 'wooooooooooo' and buck higher haha when Alli tried bucking bareback the first time we cantered without a bridle I had to grip tight and push her through it. Knocked me cap off somehow, but I stayed on

country boy.
Have you tried using a bucket of water instead of a hose?
i would just start by getting him use to the hose without the water enstablishing that it isnt a threat and isnt goning to harm him.
im glad my 14 month old filly is like her mom and dos anything you ask so hosing her/bathing her was no problem(:
