Roman, a 12 year old Thoroughbred. Very sweet disposition, respectful and quiet. Hasn't been ridden in almost a year and shares a 2 stall barn with my horse. He belongs to the barn manager who loves him and provides for him, but rides her other horses. Anyway, she said I'm welcomed to ride him and work with him if I want.
I asked her if he has any issues she said no, they almost considered making him a lesson horse "that's how good he is." However, last person who rode him, according to her, kicked him constantly and he bucked him off. Since then, no one got on him. And he used to be on a Tom Thumb bit, which he hated and fought constantly.
So what do you guys suggest? Any round pen exercises? Any special bits I should try? I wanna get him back to his ride-able days and he's got so much potential. Haaalp!
Here he is.
