Well, project horse.
His name is midnight and he's about 14.3h registered QH. 10 years old. Almost no training under saddle, but great ground manners. Was bought originally for a child as a first horse, but bucked her off and now she's afraid of him and her parents know nothing about horses, so he sat in a pasture for 2 years, and now I have him for about 6 months or as long as it takes until he's trained enough to be sold.
Right now im working on his stopping, and trotting at a decently slow pace.
He stears pretty well, but can't bend yet. He does respond to the " Whoaa" pretty well, but he gets fast and excited at the trot and sometimes doesnt listen.
I have cantered him just a couple strides in each direction and I want to work him up to a full 20 meter circle in the next few weeks.
I have started many young horses and re trained many older ones, so im not new at this, but I thought id ask for alittle advice on excerses to stop him. I want to train him to know very basic dressage
I ride him in a double jointed happy mouth bit and I use a standing martingale.
