    I had a problem similar to that, but I think my horse was just improperly trained before.

    Haha so it looks like someone else thought he'd be a good project as well. He's already sold!

    I would submit that riding ability does not necessarily relate to training ability. You can be a great trainer and a so-so rider or a great rider and a horrible trainer.

    As others have stated, working with an experienced trainer is the best way to get started.

    I agree.

    With a willing horse, patience, consistancy, flexability, time, and lots of work/riding can often be all you need. Training is the start of the road, not the end.

    I would like to add that training never stops. Training = learning. (for the horse and the human)
