Yes! Me too. I have trained horses for years myself. I cannot answer the question because it is so different with different horses, and disciplines. Every time I switched breeds or disciplines, I had to learn new ways. Now I use all that knowledge, even knowing what NOT to do.
As you work with the young horse, you learn to read him pretty good. And now that I am older, the ground is harder. I do so much ground work there is a solid foundation on that baby before I get on.
They will stop, turn, back and everything on their first ride.
These day's I use a sidepull.
Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!
