My little sister got a 4 month old foal last year for her birthday. Now please don't judge if it doesn't work out it will remain a family horse! My family is experienced with horses and if you have read my previous topics you will have met Sugar. The horse I rescued and trained.
Anyways when this foal turns 3 years old I'm going to be the one training it. She's just going to be a trail and low competition horse.
My sister is 12 years old right now and will be 14 when she starts riding her. In that time she'll have been getting lessons for about 3 years. She has been around horse all her life and she's ridden Sugar already a couple times and she seems to like it even though Sugar can be a little stubborn sometimes lol She seems to handle it well.
Here's my question: What do you think of starting her out in just a rope halter and using that instead of a bit.
I ride Sugar in a rope halter all the time and she loves it but what about a green/unbroke horse? Does anyone have another suggestion instead of a rope halter?
Greetings! Sugar :)
