POSTED BY LITTLEMAN:
i want to know what the best method of breaking a horse is and what way is the easiest.

WHITE FOOT RESPONSE:
Well if you don't know how to then I wouldn't suggest it. I personally like doing alot of roundpen work. I don't really think there is an "easier" way of doing things.

The 'best' and 'easiest' way is to pay a professional to do it for you.

Especially if you have no clue what you're getting yourself into.

Why do you think I picked it? It made me laugh like a loon the first time I saw it, so I guess both of us have a warped sense of humor.

Besides, I'm crabby, old, and full of opinions, so I thought it fit me nicely. Just hope my stories aren't too boring.

You kids get off my lawn! I know where you live!

If you have never trained a horse, definitely find someone who has experience to help you, if you can, or pay someone, as already suggested. That said, I would reccomend finding a reputable trainer to hang around and observe, as well as reading books on the subject. Start with lots of work on the ground. It is nice if your horse is already used to steering, stopping, moving off of pressure, etc. before you ever even start riding. Good luck, and have fun!

I agree with everyone about using an experienced trainer...how it's done can really depends a lot on the horse. I worked with a trainer to learn some with our youngest mare. For whatever reason, she was 'easy' and willing...one day in the ring and the next day we were already riding with a seasoned horse on the trails with just a little ring work to reinforce everything. I *know* that all horses cannot possibly be like that, and I still wouldn't try to do it myself (yet).
