I have had my gelding for 2 or 3 years now (my brain is fried I can't remember lol) and he is terrified of everything. He was left in a pasture with no human contact for two years. He reverted to a pretty much wild horse. I have been able to work with him and I ride him all the time and he is an amazing horse, but...I'm scared of desensitizing him. Yeaah I know it sounds stupid, but I have tried everything and nothing has worked for him!!!! Things people say to do, only make him more scared. I'm not at all scared of him, I'm just afraid of yet another attempt and failure at getting him atleast slightly bombproof. It really sucks becuase he is supposed to be my drill horse. Yeah. Right. Like I would take him to a rodeo! He would be sooo scared and hurt who knows how many people!!
I really need help, and sending him to a trainer is not an option at the moment, due to money and I already have one horse at the trainers.
I know my question doesn't exactly exist, but if you understand what I am getting at, could you give me some advice?
Oh, and just a random thought, yesterday was his first day. In two years. To go in a ride in a trailer. We haven't been able to take him anywhere becuase the trailer is a moster! But I have been working with him and he took it like a trooper!:)
