Say you have taken in an "unbroke" horse for two months... You are confident and assure the customer they will be able to ride their horse at the end of the 60 day period (you are training 5 days per week).
First week of training: the horse is cooperative taking the bit. However, the horse is very mouthy at the bit (without a rider). What would you do? Do you feel it would be appropriate to let the horse just stand around with a saddle and bridle for a week (nothing else) to get used to it? Or would you proceed with the training, start ground driving (or hop on-pending trainer preference), and let the horse get used to it during driving/riding?
Thanks. :) trying to find out if I'm being paranoid...
