    First of all you want to ask a trainer for there advice or find a place near you that has some one who knows how to train a horse that miss behaves. I am at a barn that the owner trains horses for a living and she does a whole bunch of stuff too. But she uses the Clinton Anderson methods and she is an amazing trainer. She is helping me train a horse his name is Oliver and he is getting along very nicely. So I would recommend finding someone who knows what there doing.

    If he does not start to show any improvment in the next few monthes, I think I might consider selling him. I want my first horse to be a great experience.

    And there are plenty of experienced trainers that board at the stable. Im sure if I asked any one of them for help they would be more than willing

    If he doesn't have hay at least 20 hrs day this boy may be dealing with ulcers. If he was raced there's a good chance that's when they started, new home, new horses, new people, not enough roughage. He needs at least 20 lbs of forage so I hope someone is weighing it.

    I really think you should ask for help, as much as you can get!

    A horse like this is a BIG challenge for anyone, and the more tips and hints you can get from people who actually get to see your horse in real life, the better.

    The thing that gets me is that he spooks HIMSELF - it's not even just under-saddle, he actually does it when he's turned out too. That's pretty scary in itself!

    I want your first horse to be wonderful, too.

    The snorting until his nose bleeds is pretty unusual. But, you say that is a recent thing. I just have to wonder about some possibilities.
    A) He's healthy and needs more work than you can give him.
    B) He has ulcers. (somewhat underdiagnosed)
    C) He has a progressive vision deficit.
    D) He got y'alls numbers real quick and is now feeling like the top horse.
    E) I'm sure I can think of more later.

    Bottom line, if he doesn't fit your need or you his, get one that does. Being able to have one horse and being stuck with one that doesn't suit you is just sad.

    I agree with Boots. There are probably a lot of causes for his behavior. If I were you, I would sell him and get a different horse. The horse market is in the gutter and there are plenty of good horses out there for dirt cheap.

    Thanks for the advice everyone :)

    I love him but someone else who is more experienced would be able to help him alot more than I can. Like I said, I'm going to give him a few more monthes before we get to that.

    Never get yourself hurt or you will be able to this and no other horse any good.

    I'm not saying that to scare you or discourage you. And, the horse won't feel like a human who perceives rejection would. If you can find a trainer to help you and you want to learn as you go, that's great. If you find this behavior continues for even two weeks without improvement, real improvement, I'd move on for both your sakes.

    Now, I'm going to wait for a photo of you happily riding, whether it is with this one or another.

    This horse does sound like a high strung individual that probably has a ton of holes in his training. His running around til he snorts blood is a big concern, in all my years dealing with horses, I haven't come across a bleeder. If it was my horse, it would get a complete vet check and if nothing major was found, off to a good trainer it would go while I took lessons. A youth working with a bucker & bolter is not something I would subject my kids to.
