It is bad for a horse to be bathed everyday, so maybe just groom his and occasionally bathe him.

For a while with my horse (I got her 4 months ago, she is a 2 year old) if I would miss just 1 day spending time with her, she would get pouty and not listen to certain things I did. But the next day, she would be back to normal, because I did not skip.

I had to get her out of that, so there would be days where I would purposefully miss days, then go for like 2 days, then miss another day or two.

Now I can miss like a week, then go out, and she is fine. She likes to be a horse on the days I am not their.

It could be with your horse, he doesn't respect you, or he just wants to be a horse, or he needs attention everyday, all the time.
I didn't mean I bathed him everyday I meant I either rode or brushed or bathed him, I'm saying I did something with everyday.

Sounds like you've untrained him. Your being too nice and he is taking advantage of you. Best thing is to get a trainer that will get him respectful again AND to teach you how to maintain it.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Lets make this clear. Its not so much your fault. Your doing what you know to take care of it. The fact that you came on here asking for help says you care for your 4 legged friend and want him to be happy. I just suggest getting some assistance that can come to your property and help you regain that relationship you started out having.

Keep in mind that even though your not a trainer per se. Everytime we handle a horse we are being a trainer. Every action we take with them can either reinforce good behavior or allow bad behavior to continue.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Thanks. I do want him to be happy. But I feel so alone. I don't know where to start looking for a trainer, and it sounds really expensive.

I asked my mom about a horse trainer, and she didn't like the idea. Keep in mind I'm the only one in my family that works with my horse.

Wanting the very best for your horse<3

I'm afraid they might sell him if things don't change, but they expect me to make the change, I can't even catch him, how can I save him?:,(

good trainers tend to be kind of expensive but you can learn alot even by going and watching trainers with other horses. The principles of horsemanship once you understand the brain of a prey animal can be applied to fix a variety of problems.

When you realize the why then its easier to communicate to your horse what you want done in a way that he can grasp it easier.
