Just because I come here to ask a question does not mean I don't know what I am doing. Even the best and brightest people in ANYTHING sometimes ask for help or need advice. We are humans not gods.
Anyways...... my horse is coming along just great! He is bitted and has been ridden 2 times at a walk and a brisk trot (not longer than a full lap around the pin) The BO has finally shut his mouth and when he saw how great he was driving with the bit yesterday all he said was "hes coming along good huh?" I have to admit this has been the easiest horse I have ever broken. I will try to get a video today but I think it is going to rain.
Thanks for the support guys. I doubted myself, but I figured this horse was going to get bored if I went with the "standard timeline" to train a horse. He has just sped through everything with such calm.
