Thank you for the responses.
Basically, every horse I have ever ridden has been fully trained. I (personally) didn't do much else with them other than groom them from time to time. They already knew the ropes, so there wasn't much for me to do ... if that makes sense ?
The lil'guy I have now is the first horse I've actually owned... and he came fully trained... I do spend stall time with him, just brushing and chatting. I am surrounded by people who already know what their doing; some of them are happy to share advice, some think its not worth my time ( just saddle up and go is all the time you need ) , some have been a bit cocky ... I don't like that.
The previous owner came over and showed me a few things to do with him, but it was rushed and while I remembered how to lunge him, I forgot everything else.
