    If you have to leave a halter on invest in a break-away halter. I know some people require their horse to wear one 24/7, which is dangerous.

    Here read this guide. It says all I could ever say about it. :)

    Like Abby said, a rope will teach him not to pull.
    What I do with horses that have no leading manners is I'll put a rope halter on them, and I'd take 4 steps with him (I do this in an enclosed pasture so if they bolt and I can't hold on they don't run too far away) and stop....I wait 5 seconds, then praise them up, and then turn in the opposite direction and repeat. Turning to different directions will hopefully keep his attention on you to see where you are going to move next.

    I agree praising is quite important. He most likely doesn't feel like cooperating either because he doesnt know what people want from him or its an unpleasant experience. Working on those two things usually helps. Who knows you might end up bonding really well if you get the ground work done and get him backed even if you only go out of weekends.

    paint stud training

    Hi and the best way to start traing this horse and you is first throw the whip and any idea of any kinds of whipping away. GENTLENESS IS THE WAY start slow and take your time he will come around to you make each time you see him or touch him a quality time the rope halter is great to start him out but take it off when you leave him . Ask questions from this group of the best horse people from around the world the folks here have a lot of great ideas and ways to work your horse so just ask and you will get the right answers to all you want and need to do to start this horse remember take your time watch and listen to your horse and the folks on here they are the backbone to you and your horse if you will ask and listen

    If I were in your situation where someone wanted me to work with a horse but said I couldn't discipline him, as a trainer I wouldn't want anything to do with it. He may be a wonderful horse with tons of potential, but with owners that say no to a smack for discipline, there's almost no chance the horse will respect them even a little bit. He could easily become very dangerous for no reason other than that he thinks that he's supposed to be in charge, and the owners will blame you for bad training.

    I firmly believe that gentling is the best training. I've only owned one horse, so im no pro. But my first horse was a 3 year old belgian draught stallion, (im 6'1'' 190 pounds.) with NO training. It was an experience, but I wouldnt trade it for the world. Horses pick up on body language ALOT. You may be sppoking him without knowing it. My big guy became an excellent ride and we had an awesome bond. Go slow, go easy, and learn his quirks, he'll learn yours and youll work better.
