    Undesired behavior is still undesired behavior, whether the horse is being bratty or happy. Most likely the horse is doing it out of impatience. I would continue what you are doing, only give his grain we he stands nicely. Make him back away from you and the gate and stand still. Might not be easy at first but he will catch on.

    I would also guess that where he was boarded, the grain was already in the stall when he was brought in. He's just expecting that now.

    Teaching sister

    Hi, I am a fairly experienced rider. I got my first horse on Monday and my sister also got one. The issue is is that she doesn't even know how to catch a horse let alone ride. I am teaching her the basics and then once I have taught her all I know (8 years worth) then we are going to send her to a riding instructor. Are their any tips that you think would be good for me to teach her? Thanks

    Welcome to the forum!

    I would strongly suggest getting her to an instructor first. While you may have 8 years of lessons, close family is usually the worse ones to teach. Aside from that, most instructors have the proper horses for beginners to ride and proven methods for beginners.

    Hi Crescent,

    I think your help and experience will be very valuable to your sister. I hope when you and she decide to find an instructor, that you'll both be comfortable with him/her, and if I can add a side note, the horse will usually be the best indicator of whether that instructor is a good one :) Horses are a lot more intelligent than most give them credit for.
