You need a knowledgeable mentor, an instructor or a trainer to work with you and your new horse. Try to find someone that has re-schooled OTTBs successfully.
Good Luck with him.
Ok thanks I havent done anything major just yet only started trying him with them last weekend (just walked him over a few). And I shall seek further advice/ instructions from a proper trainer before going any further thanks again for your advice. :)
