Oh gosh, so true.

Great video! I have been a pretty serious trail rider for 17 yrs, just had my first colt last summer, and even now I don't know if I am going to succeed in training him (even with experienced help).

I hear people all the time that barely have any experience and they are going to train their own horse, or retrain a horse with issues. I say "good luck with that." Maybe they will have all the luck and blessings in the world. But from where I am at, it is a lot harder than it looks. It very well may be the hardest, most frustrating thing I have ever attempted.

Anyway, the video is so true!

this clip is so untrue...

Every first horse owner should get a younger horse to grow up with, and who actually needs to now anything about training, you can just read a couple books and your good to go! Its the newest fad you know!

Is there something wrong with not giving your horse anything else but pasture to graze on horses were wild once they don't need hay or feet trimming!

Lol I loved this clip although I was one of those people that fell victim to the young first horse fad. Of course I've worked with many horses for years, took lots of lessons, and got an experienced trainer to help me. I just happened to like this horse a lot when I sttarted training her so I just went ahead and bought her. But I've rode my fair share of golden oldie horses and I still love those sweet guys

I about crapped my pants when you said what you said. Lol! I know that hands on helps me get more experience but buying a untrained horse and breaking one if you have no experience is no good. I did once think I could handle anything. I rescued a arab gelding baby and raised him. I did what I thought was right and will tell you I had some success. But, having a seasoned horse gave me so much more confidence and I started to refine her. I had a blast doing it and learned much more than starting one.
I now have a 2yr old filly who I will start by myself. No help. But through the years I have learned how and I know that if it becomes more than I can handle, I am not ashamed to get help. I think this is where people fall. Pride.
