well he has been there for 2 in half months so far. We have kind of playing it by ear just adding weeks if nessasary. And it's finally enough! I have learned that instead of punishing a misbehaved horse with a crop or however aggresivley you want, but making him think. And by making him think, he not only improves but you in return gain his trust and respect. I never use a crop any more or my spurs! But I give him a loose loose rein and let him know that if he'll be good and do as I say, then i'll give him a loose rein. If he disobeys then I tighten up and he knows that he can fix that. I've defenitly learned.
