    That's really good Delete! Keep with him and keep trying to make him see you as a leader. :)

    I don't know if you ever did answer this, but is there a trainer in your area you could work with? You don't have to have him/her necessarily train your horse with you but you could schedule the occasional time for them to come out and watch and help give you pointers on things you could do. We can only offer suggestions based on what you tell us but not seeing the horse and his behaviour ourselves we can only guess what the underlying issues are. There may be things you aren't seeing that you then can't tell us about that a trainer standing there would pick up on and could give you the "ahhhh" breakthrough piece of information, you know?

    There are things we know we know, things we know we don't know and things we don't know we don't know...... It's the things you don't know that you don't know that get you when you're working with horses and why even the most experienced people do well to work with someone who's been around a bit longer or done a bit more than we have. :)

    Keep up the good work!

    I have several trainers available to me. If worst comes to worst, I will certainly go to one for help.

    It probably wouldn't cost you much to have one out for a "lesson" type of set up.... just have them there for an hour while you bring your guy in and do your regular routine. $40 for even one helpful idea might save you a lot of energy.

    JMO though ;)

    Oh, that's not what you want then. You want someone to be able to come to your barn and spend an hour with you as you go through your routine. If you can find someone that can do that with you then that would be ideal.

    Keep us updated!! :)

    That really isn't to bad though, lots of the higher end trainers (that have been doing it for a long time) don't come to you. I go to people just because I'm still newer to the training world and need to make a name for myself. My old boss doesn't come to you and she charges $50 for an hour as well, but it is SOOO worth it. I like to go for thoses little occasional lessons even if I'm not having troubles. It really helps because they have more options in their arsonal then I do.

    Maybe you could talk to people at your barn & see if anyone is interested in a clinic. Then approach the trainer & see if they will come out if there is more than one person to train. We've done that before at our place. Plus you would be working with other horses in the arena which seems to be the problem.
    It sounds though like your horse is probably just nervous in the new place & this will work itself out over time.
