[QUOTE=Nina;931834]I actually asked for advice to help me along the way to rectify the problem which now does not exist. The answer given to me was to SELL MY HORSE, correct me if im wrong but this is not a solution QUOTE]
I made that 'suggestion' after reading through several posts of yours prior to responding of back and forth discussiong between you and other posters 'discussing' what you had tried, what had worked, what didn't, etc, etc...there were suggestions given that SHOULD have worked if they really were implemented properly, so my perception on the situation is that you were probably not quite experienced to break in a young horse yet, especially one with his background, so yes, I suggested selling, or finding someone to work with you one one one...I love how you left that part out of my original response to you. As a trainer, I want both horse and owner to remain safe...which is why I suggested what I did due to what I read here.
At any rate I'm glad you seem to have worked through his little stubborn streak, and I hope you can continue to progress.
