    Naughty Horsie!


    So my friend Lisa owns this horse Marvin and he is a stunning horse, although his manners are at some times non-exsistant and he tends to shy at new things. Lisa has ridden him a few times, but she's rather scared of him. I believe that with a confident rider, he can turn into a good horse. His never reared, kicked or bit someone, he has only bucked once and that was when a 'trainer' continuesly whipped him on the hind. His 13 years old and Lisa has ridden him in a lesson with my trainer (she takes lessons with Sue as well). They have jumped just under 2m together, in a lesson. But reasently he has gotten worse, his back/teeth/saddle/ect have been checked. He is just under 16 hh. I've offered to work with him. So I'd like some suggestions on things to do, he is only down the road from Chinga, so I was thinking about trying to lunge him 3 times a week (If possible, although I am starting high school and have my own horse who needs daily riding) and riding him twice a week.

    Starting with a plastic bag, going on to a tarp and meeting new obsticals, getting him to trust me and working on his manners. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on what to do with him? I can upload pictures if you like?

    Some more information that I think I should add, Lisa has tried lunging him (although she hasn't done it in a while). The result of that is that he lunges pretty well although sometimes he tried to come in. He thinks the purpose of lunging is coming in closer to her, or so we believe. He carries himself pretty well, although sometimes he will try and fight you for his head. His an ex-pacer, so he takes a fair bit to get to canter, apperantly its a fair bit of squeezing and a nudge or two with your heels.

    Truly, if I can't work with him Lisa has to sell him. Even though she is a more advanced rider then I am and I admit it, she is scared of him.

    I think I will start with the bascis or riding, getting him use to leg pressure, accepting contact, ect. Basically treating him like a "baby" when it comes to riding. Not sooking him, but taking him back to the beginning.
