I have tried to have as many people (people who I know I can trust) come out and work with him but if I am around he is always focused on me and won't listen to anyone else. I have had my dad as well as a few of my trusted friends come out and work with him when I am not there and he seems to do alright but if I am around he will not listen to anybody else. I am not sure how to deal with this problem other than to have other people come out as often as possible to work with him. Any advice in this area?
If this is a horse you are keeping this is a good thing in my opinion. If not then let the others work him and you not be around at that time
