This is what I had to do with my off the track 3yr old TB, he was a runner, he would have hit the Derby if he hadn't busted his knee, my brother thought he was a cow poke so he rode his out... ah- put to much pressure on him. At this time I was say 14 & stupid- so I started to ride him when no one was home. I put him in a small pen (round pen, pasture, anything small & hard for the horse to get up to speed in) & worked him on stopping, turning.

I never did get him trained & have the scars & bones to prove it but its because of my age & how fudged that horse was.
Your horse seems so very much like Khanner, he is a one owner horse. That may or may not be the case but things should start over for him.

Good luck! Don't give up on him!

[QUOTE=ErikaLynn;734098]That is the typical warmblood personality. You should look for a trainer that specializes in warmbloods. If you continue making the horse seem like he is in charge and not his rider, then he will become very dangerous.[/

He has had ground work only since this happened, Icompleatly agree

Salon, you hit the nail on the head. That is exactly what mozart is like. He is a gentle giant until he has had enough. We are definatley heading in the right direction now. I dont think anything like this will happen again. We are at a facility that has trained mostly off the track T/bs
and a few completely green ones, never a 4 yr old 17 hand w/b green as they come. We no the mistake that was made and will not be repeating it. Getting a bit of flack from our barn but I could care less. He is the unknown to them, they will see when he is trained and amazing they were wrong. thanks
