    The main thing is don't tip toe around his issues. You have to work through them. Tip toeing around them is just going to make them worse.

    Still curious as to what he does when you cinch him up.

    And you have no proof that it wasn't. I'd say just drop the subject and let it annoy you in secret. There's no need to take your annoyance out on the OP, especially in the rude way you have, by commenting on her choice of font color of all things.

    To the OP, I agree with the "take it slow" comments.

    You are the one who opened your thread with "abused horse".

    I agree with Speedracer. The word 'abuse' is thrown out every time a horse flinches.

    And you want to 'break' this horse?

    Can you get him lightly cinched up at all or is it as soon as you bring the cinch under him he starts moving off?

    Then don't ask him to stand still. Tell him to. Either hold the lead in one hand and cinch with the other or get him to tie well and deal with his dancing. He is avoiding. As soon as you let him know that you will not stop simply because he is avoiding...he will stop avoiding!

    As far as SR goes, the abuse thing is absurd. Every horse with marks on them is not abused. And even if they are, it is no excuse. To other horses in the field, he is just another horse. You should treat him the same. You may disagree with words but what I said and what SR said are the same. Don't make excuses for your horse.

    Agree 100%. And you are right, what you and SR said are the same, however you said it constructively

    I am still trying to figure out how a dent in the forehead could not have been done by another horse. Hoof to bone can make dents.


    For the record, I have to agree on the font color. It is REALLY hard to read on a white background.

    He lets me get it under him but as soon as it touches his belly he starts dancing...

    My mare (who has never been abused) used to do that. She was very ticklish and had theories about her body being hers and not mine. Ha, silly her. I just had to teach her that it is my body, I just let her use it the other 23 hours a day.

    I used to simply touch her belly a ton. If she danced I moved along with her. Now I can even clean between her teats with out a fuss.
