A video may show you the mechanics of training but does not show you the timing, the feel, and the anticipation of the horse's reaction.

To paraphrase a famous trainer - training is knowing what happened before what happened, happens. You simply can't get that from a video.

Learning how to train a horse is not something you can look up on the internet. You need a teacher.

Please, follow everyone's advice and do not get an untrained horse. Especially a draft horse. They are so strong, if they decide not to behave, there isn't a **** thing you could do about it. They can break a person in half like a toothpick and not even realize it. That is why they must be trained infallibly and an untrained one does not belong in the hands of a beginner.

Please take the time to educate yourself, talk to trainers, and maybe invest in a horse that's already well trained.

@kitten_Val. It is not too expensive to keep a horse in india. If the horse works all day then people feed them with food like hay, grains or even rice and it costs nearly 5$ or less a day. I was choosing that cheap way because Im still a student who is majoring in physics and working as a part time tutor too.But I love horses so much. Now I understand that it is not possible to do that alone. Thanks for the answer.

Sure! Horses are quite expensive in US (although it depends on what one call "expensive" of course). I was a student too (even though years ago), and money are usually very tight before you get a decent job. If you love horses try to invest some money into lessons and/or volunteer to help in stable (if there are any in your area) in exchange for riding. Good luck!

YES. Volunteering to help out around farms not only gives you a ton of hands-on experience, but a lot of times they are more than happy to exchange riding the horses. It's a great trade for someone who is just getting started, you'll learn the basics and be able to improve yourself from there. There is just so much to learn, especially at first I volunteered for two years, and then had someone spend another year just teaching me the basics of ground work, and then got my first horse, so that by then I was a little more prepared for what was coming.

Good luck!!

Yes, thank you. I wasn't meaning to be rude- sorry if it came off that way. I have a broken thumb and its rather hard to type on my phone with it. :X

Anyways, having a young/untrained horse and not having any experience can lead to some pretty nasty situations and potentially dangerous. I would never advise it- even with a great trainer. I would always always always always advise the person to buy an experienced horse before I tell them to get on that is untrained.

You will more than likely end up frustrated, hurt and annoyed. Trust me- I have been overmatched by a horse and that is what I felt.

Please don't for your sake and the sake of a horse. Leave the training to the pros. Im sure you can take some great lessons for what you would spend on a horse and eventually find one that suits your needs.

:)

Good luck!
