My horse is 19. He is a retired rodeo horse, he used to be a bulldogger in the rodeo. I've had him since he was 14 and have been trying to train him to be a pleasure horse. Was that wrong? I thought it might be ya know considering the saying "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" but I just kept trying because that's what I was expected to do. And it's just not really working, I mean this year and last year were the two most serious years considering I'm still a teenager and I really didn't have a clue on how to train my horse until last year. Before that I kind of just walked, trotted, and loped around the arena. I don't really place that well at shows and I'm starting the think that all I'm doing I confusing my horse. I still want to show him I just don't know like in what shows. Like I considered doing barrel racing because he does know how to do that well he's just not fast. I mean he's faster than pleasure horses but slower than gamers. I still want to use him I just don't know what for! Please help! Any advice on what I should do? I'm still a young person so I have time!
