Well, this is my first horse, and I just needed some information :)
And I have a young horse because I wanted to get a good connection with him, and I want a horse that will live a while some wanted him young plus I wanted to train him myself
Taralynn, this is rookie mistake #1. It is NEVER a good idea for an inexperienced (green) rider to work with an inexperienced (green) horse. Neither of you know what you are doing, and one or both of you will get hurt as a result. This is where the old saying "green + green = black & blue
" comes from.
Horses don't have "good connections". They don't think about you during the day. They don't think about your feelings. They don't sit around wondering when you are going to show up. They are a horse
. Period. They will choose their horse buddies over you. They will choose grass and treats over you. They only learn to respect and trust you when you are a solid leader.
I highly advise you to take riding lessons on an older horse who has been there and done that. Because if you don't even know how to handle a trained horse, how are you going to handle an untrained one?
A 2-yr-old should NOT be your first horse.
Do you think it would be wise for a 9-yr-old child to drive a car? No! So why would it make sense for an inexperienced rider to "drive" a horse? Especially when the horse doesn't have automatic shifting, or brakes, or a steering wheel because they are not trained.
and I do know a lot about horses
No you don't
And I don't mean that to be snotty or rude, but to make you actually accept and understand that you should not work with this horse at all unless you have supervision by someone who has successfully
trained young horses before. So that you can learn the correct way to do it. Why make your own mistakes and ruin the horse, when you can work with someone who's been there and done that?
