Here are a few pictures of areas that people could spend some time with.
Always strive to keep the horse relaxed and calm.

So why get a yearling you can't do much with for the next 18 months?

She is still a little skittish when i touch her and she hates when i pick up her hoofs. I have never broke a horse and i do not know much about ground work. Can you just tell me if i am doing right so far and what all do i need to be doing and how can i get her use to me picking up her hoofs. Any thing would be helpfull. Thank you
Hi, welcome to the forum.

It would be best if you started your own thread. I'm sure you will get more replies than tagging on to someone elses topic.

Later,more complicated lessons can be introduced.
The task should be shown at a rate that the horse can accept and understand.

Tying and washing.

Tying with a blanket.

Intro to the saddle.

Hoof trimming and handling.
