    easier said than done. I don't use saddles when I lay down just a hobble rope around midsection and a halter.

    Not getting points across, just tiring him out.

    I don't see this ending well.

    The only thing I want to gain from laying this horse down is letting him know he doesn't always get his way and get an attitude change.

    I do believe despite not getting him down I did get an attitude change from him. He did give into the hobble. Just didn't get him down.

    For one thing I think your attitude may be playing in to this, which he picks up on. You may be coming across as a predator and there's no way he's going to go down and let you eat him.

    I think it sounds like you're doing a great job so far. Rome wasn't built in a day. I would not have the experience or confidence laying a horse down, so good on you for knowing how to. I bet once he figures out you're not tolerating any of his attitude, you'd be able to lay him down. Good luck and keep us updated on his progress! :)

    You made progress and have learned a lot about him. Does he have awesome bloodlines to justify keeping him a stallion? They don't know how to handle a stallion & the the next buyer may not either. I would have insisted on his being gelded before training. With his attitude & being intact he is well on his way to being dangerous for many potential owners.

    I know it's not your decision to geld him but I HOPE his owners will be honest about his history of aggression when selling him and screen potential buyers well.

    Good luck in rehabbing this brat, don't forget that persistence beats resistance. Sounds like you made some good progress, and I bet he'll be hitting the dirt within a few more sessions.

    His markings are pretty.

    Good luck to ya Ghostwind. Horses like this are why many trainers get burnt out and/or stop riding for the general public. Sounds like the owners have built so much resistance in this horse, it's going to take alot of persistence and a careful choice of techniques to get this accomplished without this knucklehead hurting himself. If it was me I'd probably send him home. He hurts himself and then you get a bad rap... Be careful whatever you do

    He doesn't have to be blind to have vision issues. The not wanting to walk into stall throws up a big red flag for me.
