Do you have someone who can help you.. like you get on him (ur horse) and you have an experienced person leading him next to the road so that way he can't get completely out of control and learn that he doesnt need to freak out when someone is on him

I am in the process of training my 4 year old to be road safe as well. I have been hand walking him. I started around a relatively quiet neighborhood off a busy road. The first time he was a bit nervous. I didn't push it. I went as far as I thought he could handle, let him eat some grass, then turned around and went home. Then I did it again and went a bit further. Last time we went around the entire 1/4 mile block and then down a major road for about another 1/4 mile. No drama. He followed me along, even when the cars whizzed by. Hope this helps.

Thanks for all your replies guys :)
He's been coping really really well :)
He's been on a few walks, and has seen everything pretty much, had tractors, cars and bikes pass close by to him.
I even took him into the ford!
Such a good boy!
Am taking him along a busy road tomorrow!

How about the ones that speed up. One guy not only increased speed, he decided to move over driving on the speed bumps - made a noise that we had never experienced before!

Most people understand little about horses so you have to be prepared to expect the unexpected I guess.
