well, project horse.
his name is midnight and hes 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 shes 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 hes trained enough to be sold.
right now im working on his stopping, and trotting at a decently slow pace.
he stears pretty well, but cant 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.
