I used to have horses years ago. I was into hunter/jumpers for ten years but that was a long time ago. I just recently moved to a place where I could keep horses and I now have a yearling Friesian stallion. Let's see.... he's 15 months old now, and I've had him for a couple of months. My discipline of choice will be dressage.
I've never had a youngster before. I'm curious to know what I can be doing with him at this point, and I've gotten conflicting advice so far. He leads pretty well, ties, loads. I've been working on him lifting his feet and we're getting pretty good at that. I bought some natural horsemanship books and I really like the approach. I really need to teach him to respect my space, that's been a bit of a problem, though he respects the lead and follows well. It's like... oh gee, you were standing there?
I have a round pen and someone said, oh you have to wait until he's two, and someone else said, heck you can start lunging when they're one. I'd love to get some advice! Thanks.
