    Getting Back Onto Horses

    My friend wanted me to post this for him:
    This was the first time my friend rode a 17hh horse and he fell off because he started to pig root and go nuts. He is now a bit worried to get on any horse now, he really wants to but he just can't.
    What are some things we can do to make him trust horses again?

    Find a quiet been there done that horse, put them both on the end of the lunge line and let him get comfortable. Then proceed from there. Teach him a one rein stop, and give him some tools he can use if he feels like he is in a bind.

    Recommend that he take lessons from a well respected trainer who has nice, quiet schoolies.

    Try to find an old, small guy to just have him spend time with whether its grooming, lunging or going out in the feild to catch
