Exclamation How to restart an old haflinger?????

I have an 18 year old haflinger. I think he was trained wrong, and he needs to be restarted.

How do I restart him.
He has been ridden before, but he just isn't right. And I would like to restart him myself.

He is very, very, very, food oriented!!

Any info on where to start would be great!

Have you ever trained a horse?

I would restart him the same way you would start any horse that's never been ridden especially if he's had a ton of time off.

Why do you think he was trained wrong? What isn't right?

Yeah, need heaps more info. Of course with so little to go on, may well be wrong, but it sounds like you don't have any experience or much idea about training(?), so I would also suggest that you at least get lots of help from someone who knows what they're doing. Also his 'problems' may be more physical than mental. Get him checked out & treated if nec. To rule out pain/discomfort.

BTW, re 'food motivated', you can google 'clicker training' & learn heaps on the principles & practices that are important there, which will help you on your way to knowing what to do re training.
