Do those horses ever get any kind of farrier or vet care? If they are are that untrained I'll bet their feet are a terrible mess.

They just had the farrier come and work on their hooves when my horse got his hooves done. I believe this weekend the farrier is coming back. And, I have no idea about vet care.

Well then why are you letting them get to you? Rofl I'd just tell them to shove off and mind their own business. How old are you?

13, and I just have never been around kids my age before. I'm usually around people who are at least 20 years old +

I'm homeschooled and hang out with the people around here.

Ok, this is a terrible situation and I wish I could help more but here is my input:

1.) I work with my friend and her 4 ponies/horses and help train her tbs and wbs. I have had to adapt to English because I am actually a western trainer. When we got those ponies from my friend's aunt, they had been so badly treated. It took us 3 months for them to step into an arena without going mad but we are on track now. Sorry, just to show what know-it-all cousins can do.

2.) I've always found neck reining and teaching it very simple, especially on the younger horses. If you did your groundwork properly, then it should be easy.

So you know when you are teaching the horse to leg yield in the ground by applying pressure in that area? Well, for neck reining, just stand faced towards your horses and apply pressure to the middle of the neck. What you are wanting is your horse to bend his head away from you and cross his left foot over to the right. That sensitivity will help when you are neck reining.

Everyone, correct me if I am totally wrong.

Come on! It's easy, I know you can do it! :)

3.) The only thing I find with training the horse to neck rein for the first time is he will confuse whether you are asking him to turn his head left or right.

I had a funny moment with the one horse I was training to neck rein and I had done my training on the ground and in the halter and now that he was accustomed to the bit he would now learn. So I turn him right and he listened to me but lowers his head a little and randomly jiggles his head left and right like, "Should I go this way or this way?" Basically if something like that happens you need to relax again, let him steady his head and try again.

Let me know how this goes hey.

Hope your problems go away and don't worry, you will get your horse up to scratch. (They were going to put "my" pony Conqueror(check out his profile) down because he nearly killed 4 different trainers before my friend said she wanted him and got him. All I had to do was change the bit and I noted that he was extremely sensitive. Now he is awesome).
