I know you people all probably think im just somebody that is lying about this but I ground worked her for three days and she was doing everything I asked her to. I was able to mount her on the 4th day without trouble and she will walk, trot, canter and gallop on command and also will turn with leg pressure. Plus she also backs up for me without any problems. And it wasnt really rushed in, I worked every day with her and started her over ground poles and then up into 1 foot jumps. She will also follow me around the pasture and she obeys my commands. I am in no way abusive and her recent owners who are big time racers at Penn National observed my training with her a little. When I say break a horse I mean be able to mount and ride for an hour without any problems.
The TB has never reared on me, tried to buck me off, bite me or any of the bad vices. So saying that I broke her in a week, is me saying the truth, I may be sixteen but I know my horses. I use pure natural horsemanship and it obviously works. So don't say im rushing my horses into jumping because I am not, I worked her into it. Even after starting her over ground poles, I set up a two foot jump next to a one foot jump and send her around with my mare that jumps four foot and they will jump the jumps together. In no way am I rushing my horse into jumping she gained me trust and does what she is asked.
