Well when you work that horse up, tire the son if gun first. Get him good and tired before anyone steps on him. Lunge him everyday with a saddle. Get a couple old tires and a three foot rope, run that rope between your saddle fork and tie the tires on both ends. That way, he can get used to having weight on his back again the the feel of a riders legs. Then work him every day like that, lunging, ground driving. Wear the horse out first, he needs it.
Thank you so much best post yet
