New Horse Training Tips

Hey everyone

I figured I would ask your advice on this. I have a family that has a 3 year old Paint stallion, left him in the field most that has been done to him is pet once in a while, when I came along.

I have got the horse now I put a halter on him, you can be near him without him shying away and make over him....

Now the tricky part, they do not want this horse whipped, they want to be able to ride him, do w/e they want, but NO WHIPPING, they have had bad experiences with this.

The horse refuses to lead, sometimes he cooroperates and other times NOTHING, will stand still, jerk, run pull away. Last weekend I was able to get a bit in his mouth and he would lead...this weekend nothing, Would not budge, pulled away from me.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help

Put a rope halter on. He will learn not to lean against it and fast.

The only bad thing about this whole thing is I can only work with him on weekends....

This past weekend he was in an all around bad mood, he was even nipping a good bit, I tried to just spend time with him and groom, but he didn't like it very much, he just did not want anyone around IDK

Well its going to impossible to get him ready to ride unless they want you to to training him for a year if you can only work on weekends.

I think you should invest in a rope halter. You can get one at tractor supply or or you local tack store for like 8 dollars. Forget everything else. And work on getting him to be giving to the the halter consistently before anything else.

Thats good!

Just don't leave the rope halter on when you leave. He may get caught on something and hurt himself.

I hope everything works out for you and remember to be patient and move at his pace
