Smile 2 yr old in need of serious help

I have a 2 yr old who sat in the pasture since he was born and was on his mother until last November. How do I get him into the training barn when he is being started so late. He has to show next March and I really want him to be ready but am falling behind because I don't have time to work with him or the money to send him to a trainer.

I don't understand what it means by 'I don't have time to work with him and can't afford a trainer'
I think we need to know more. First off has he been castrated and what amount of handling has he had?
Do you have any time at all to spend with him or are you looking for someone to volunteer to help?

he has to show next March? why? would it not be disastrous to show him if he isn't ready? worse than waiting until he is ready, even if that is not on your 'schedule'?
