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

He knows when you're happy.
He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.

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.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

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