    There's this idea in success philpsophy that life will pay the price that you ask of it. I understand that Pat Parelli used to charge 100 bucks an hour with a three-hour minimum - before he was famous. It was in the early 80s I believe.

    My friend pays her trainer $35 to ride horse. Trainer drives to the property. Trainer charges $40 to give owner lessons.

    I don't know about charges for training but...
    You don't give much information on this 3 year old - are you saying that he won't move when he's being ridden?
    Has he just been backed?
    Does he understand any verbal cues such as clucking or 'walk on' when he's being lunged?

    My thought, too :(

    My young horses learn verbal cues ("whoa", "walk on", cluck to trot, kiss to canter) well before they are ridden. The first ride or two, a gentle leg squeeze with "walk on", active driving with my seat, and gently pulling the head to the side should be enough to get at least a sideways step or two. After a few attempts, most will make the association that those cues mean move, and you can request more and more steps and gradually eliminate the sideways pull, although I like to keep the horse in a smallish circle until I know I have brakes. I'm confused why anyone would use a whip to get movement on a first ride - seems a good way to sour the horse to the idea of being ridden! I want that first ride to be as easy and pleasant an experience as I can make it, to make the next steps easier on both of us.

    A few rides in, when I know the horse understands what I'm asking but he chooses not to respond, I may use the free end of my split reins (I've never felt compelled to carry a whip.) But, you have to give him a chance to figure out what you are asking before you punish him for not responding. Regardless, if you DO opt for a whip/rein swat, be prepared in case the youngster blows up in response.
