Hi! So I am feeling slightly overwhelmed with my new baby. I am pretty new to horses, but purchased a Mustang gelding 3 weeks ago. He has a wonderful disposition and is really friendly! He tests me sometimes, but I do correct him. HE will officially be 2 in april and I was hoping to start him under saddle in the summer. I am having trouble finding a trainer that could work with both of us... I would really like to do a lot myself, but don't have the guidance on what to do or where to start. He halters very nicely, trailers, picks up his feet, the basics. I have not lounged him, and haven't done any groundwork, as I do not know what to do....but I could pick it up fast if told what to do. He was VERY underweight when we first got him and I considered him my little wee-nie baby because he was not so confident. He was easier to handle. Now that he is starting to fill out very nicely, I am feeling 'overpowered' almost. I live in Canby, OR and Thunder is staying in Colton, OR. I am wondering if there is anyone on this forum that train horses regularly, give lessons, ect. I would really like someone who knows a little about mustangs (even though he was captivity bred),and preferably closer to where we live (clackamas area). I am not looking for the "cowboy style" training...more so 'natural horsmanship' I guess is what it is called. Thank you and sorry this is so long!
