We got a new horse a few days ago. He is seven and is a rocky mountain horse. -Don't worry! I'll get photos when I can!
Well, one thing I want to do in life is to train horses. I am good at it and I want to get so much better and have training experience. Our Horse's previous owner did hardly anything with him.
Didn't do any groundwork whatsoever.
Never fed the horse from his hands.
Didn't ride much - and never really rode western.
With more, but my mind is blank...(I rode trails today and yesterday, that is after I went diving for carrots in a bucket...hey! No one told me they sink!! And three days of driving to get the horse.)
Has never been backed out of a trailer.
Doesn't back often.
Still needs work on being ridden.
Needs to be taught groundwork.
Needs to work on not trotting - he is gaited. So I guess that means he isn't allowed to trot because the gaited horses are meant to keep all the feet on the ground.
Needs to be taught being caught properly. The Owner let the horse do whatever to be caught. He would go up to a corner and had to be approached from behind in order to get a halter on.
Should learn to be hand fed - like treats and wormer stuff.
Just a lot of things.....
My mom knows I want to be a trainer - and she even says I am very good with it and she said to the owner that I was better than her in most ways.
But I just don't know why she won't let me help train him to be more advanced. She knows I can help and I would be good with it, I asked her and that's what she said.
I guess what I am asking is, Do any of you maybe know why she won't let me - even after her support for me??
I just don't know why and she won't say why either. It's jsut kind of confusing.
