I need help with training!

Ok so I bought a gelding that I was told was broke. Come to find out he really hasn't been rode. Origionally I was told he was rode the first haying season of this year. I found out recently that he hasn't been rode since last year. And when he was rode last year it was only once. He was broke as a 3 year old and had 30 days put on him, then not rode except once last year. I need some tips on how to go about re-teaching him. I did try to lunge him and he almost didn't know what I was asking. He learned quite fast after a few tries though. I am not quite sure what the most effective way is to start the ground work all over again. I have had a saddle on him, and he doesn't buck or anything. He is just fine with it. If you guys have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated!

What do you know about training?

Well I would say I am pretty knowledgable. I have been around horses my whole life. I have been reading and watching clinics on colt starting to try to get an idea, but I have never done some of the things they suggest. (Like ground driving) I am not even sure where to begin. When I got into this whole situation, my understanding was that he is broke. I know now that isn't the case. I have never "broke" a colt, but have put foundation training on a couple horses.

I strongly suggest you find someone with knowledge and experience to help you with this.

Or I suggest you find a trainer and send him out and then (if the trainer allows it) go and watch him work with this horse.

From what I am reading you do not have the experience to do start this horse on your own.

This is not meant as a put down to your skills. This is meant to give you an opportunity to learn while staying safe.
