Major (my horse) is very difficult to mount because of fear issues that he has. I really want to help him get over it, but in trying to help him I have ended up fearful of the mounting process myself. I am only sending him for a month (which I hope is enough time) and the trainer guarantees her work. I'm going to have her work with him on mounting and dismounting (which she said would take about 2 weeks) then just generally riding him and getting him calmer about being rode. Is there anything else I should have her teach him? He is going to be a trail horse.
