Thank you so much best post yet

You can also use a tire inner tube full of sand and throw it over the saddle and tie the ends together under his belly if the tires spook him.

To be honest, it doesn't sound like you're going to get much, if anything, for this horse.

Define "champion barrel racer." You said he has a nice pedigree. That doesn't mean "champion barrel racer" in my book. At what level did he compete?

Regardless, he's not a champion now; he's a potentially dangerous horse with behvioral problems and no training. You need to drop your price and find someone that is willing and able to put the time into him he needs.

This is all good an fine advice when you KNOW what your doing...I am thinking that it would most likely end with a traumatized horse/hurt people if the OP decides to tie tires to him and lung him.. they all sound awfully inexperienced:/

That's why I gave her the sand idea. The horse can't hurt himself with that. And I'm taking it that her dad will help her. She's gotta start somewhere. We all need to get over what the horse was priced at and everything. The horse in this market isn't going to sell unless you can him. If people buy horses they want them broke. So instead of ripping her on the price, we need to give her a few pointers. Yeah groundwork and respect. But that isn't going to get a horse used to carrying weight again. If she has help from someone who kinda knows what they are doing, throwing some sand in an inner tube on a horses back isn't that dangerous.

I can see what you mean, and I admire that your trying to help...I just have a feeling that what you are saying could potentially be very misconstrued..and used in a detrimental way..

The best advice I could think to give would be to get the help of a trainer (or someone more horse knowlegeable)..and NO that doesn't mean you have to send the horse off for months (yes that can be a bank killer).. A training session here and there can teach you vast amounts while not killing the pocket book.. many trainers are willing to help a person out if the person wants the help.

Sorry I just feel that in this instance, these people need to be able to *see* what they need to do instead of reading about it...

Unless he is bringing in money when he wins he is not worth anywhere near $4500. And since he was only out to pasture for a few weeks, seems like you said 4 weeks and he got this bad I highly doubt he was as trained as you say he was. Just because he could run before doesn't mean he was well trained.
