Smile Beginning my horses training

My horse has just turned 6 years old, and I have owned him for about 10months now, but when we bought him he had only just been broken, and was very unbalanced in all paces, and very stiff. I have now corrected all of his paces, and I think he is ready to try work a lot harder, eg. Working on the bit, a few dressage movements etc, but I want to do all this correctly!! Can you help me with a few ideas of what to do+how I should do it?

I think the best,most effective, way to go about this would be finding a good dressage trainer in your area and have them work with you, while you ride and they are on the ground. It is super helpful to have another pair of eyes. Even if it is one lesson a week or every two weeks, that will give you time to work on what you have learned. happy riding!

If you lack knowledge & experience of what to do, I second Shultz's advice to find a good instructor/trainer. Other than that, work towards goals gradually(eg. Don't ask for anything like perfection in 'primary school') in easy steps & short sessions.

Here's some advice from someone who's been there... but my horse was 16 (yes, I'm serious) not 6.

Finding a good dressage trainer that you and your horse both click with is very important. After every lesson, write down exactly what you learned. That way, in the future if you are having problems you can look back and say "Oh! I remember now!"Also, it is going to be hard! A year from now, if you get really frustrated, look back at how much you've done, and all the progress that you made.

Good luck!!!
