    Any horse I start and I have started alot get rode twice a day just to establish a routine and the first rides consist of a few minutes riding around a round pen. I keep at this routine for about the first week and then daily the horse is out on the trail. Once we start working the open fields and trails the riding time is stepped up to 1/2 to 1 hour so I drop the double riding daily. But for at least a month the horse is rode every single day agian to establish routine and not let the horse forget the lesson from the day before.
    In 3 months I expect a solid horse, one that side passes , backs, stops and turns well, stands rock solid for mounting and introduced to leads, not flying changes but solidily picks up a lead. If the horse is too young the leads are not taught until the horse is older but lots and lots a wet saddle blankets.
    All horses are taught to tie solid and hobbling is introduced in the 2nd or 3rd month.

    Is hobbling always necessary for every horse?

    No but to me yes.ll If the horse ever tangles in wire or catches a foot I want him to stand without destroying himself. It also teaches patience and I hobble almost daily for 1/2 hour. For grooming, for saddling I just hobble. I teach to hobble on all 4 and tether for grazing on one hind.
    I feel anything you do with a horse helps establish a relatationship

    Hobbling this something I do when I first look at a horse to consider buying. I rough hobble him to see how he fights restraints. I will not buy a prospect that is to quick to fight.
    Hobbling also teaches a horse to stand quiet, no pawing, no shifting around. Hobbling is easy to teach and within a week of starting you should have a horse that hobbles
