I don't know what to do. PLEASE HELP!
I have only had my horse for a little over a week and he is giving me some REALLY bad problems. The first two times I rode him, he was PERFECT. He did everything I said but the third time I rode him he started acting funny and would constantly back up, throw his head, and stand in one spot no matter what ( I kicked him, I talked to him, my mom tried to lead him from the spot but nothing worked). I tapped him with my reins to make him go and he reared. I walked him around a little and got off to see if I could pin point anything. I can't find anything wrong. I thought maybe he was sore because I rode him the day before so I gave him a few days off (he is really out of shape). I tried riding today and now he is bucking, throwing his head worse (everytime I pull back on the reins even in the slightest bit), standing in one spot again and then walking a few more steps and stopping or backing up, when we grab his halter he throws his head. He won't listen and I don't know what to do. This horse is a dream when no one is on his back or if someone is leading him when someone is mounted. Please help ):
Life is about doing something you love and never giving up.
