Hi all! I bought a horse two days ago for the first time. He is an older gelding, and is a Missouri Foxtrotter. He is quite pretty. I am sticking to the feeding schedule the previous owner had him on and I have already set up a vet appointment for the once over. My issue is the harness. I cannot get this on him! He lets me approach him and brush him, even eats treats from my hand but he will not let me harness him. I am green and I am sure he can sense this, and of course he does not know me at all. What should I do?
I do not plan on riding him but he is broke and the previous owner had him saddled and rode him and even put a child on him so it is possible to harness him. I just don't know how.
