    I know this might sound out there but have you tried riding a horse to catch him by roping him?? If he is nervous I would just get out there and rope him then pony him off a sturdy horse til you get him in a smaller pen by himself. Then you can do as much ground work and halter breaking as you need ... worth a try atleast to get him seperated to handle

    yes have thought about this but the lady that rents the field that the horse is in will not let any other horse on the field

    I have to shake my head at some property owners. So the owner doesn't want other horses on the land, yet, there is a major problem catching a horse, whch I presume also means a problem during vet visits. She can't bend the rule for just a few minutes?

    Another possible option. Create a small pen within the turnout area using whatever materials. It doesn't have to be freestanding; create it using two angles on the fence already there. Maneuver the horse in..you said he would eat from a bucket? The only problem even with this idea, however, is getting something over his head in order to lead him off into a secure location so you can work with him. Even if you can't make it small, a smaller area will allow you to walk him down. I had a horse that was hard to catch only becasue he just liked being in the field. I would just follow at angles, doing some large area maneuvering until he finally got tired of the game and would let me come up to him.

    Just out of curiosity, was the person who beat him ever identified? Personally, I think I would repeat the action on them.

    hi we know who did it, I have made a small pen and did joint up and he did really well but as soon has he saw the rope, head collar he run and knocked it down and fled the big metal panels he has also been though the barb wire fence a few times in to a even bigger field we have also try to run him up into a drive box (horse box). Need to get him caught to work on him ready to be broken in he is 4 and a full welsh d

    Any way to create that same pen then a lane of sorts to get him into the horse box? (What we colonists refer to as a trailer:) ) That way you wouldn't really need the headcollar or rope.

    What if you had a rope with two loops one on each end. When you walk in the field with to touch him do your normal thing. But have both loops around your hand. Then when he settles and lets you pet him on his neck reach your hands around and put a one loop threw the other so it can cause I quick lead.

    The rope doesnt have to be more than 2 - 3 ft long. But you will have to get him comfortable with neck rubs first lol

    he would not go in to the horse box and were he is getting moved to is right next to a very busy main town road so he will need head collar on for sure

    tried this twice and he slipped the rope twice over his head by going though a bunch of trees backwards lol
