Howdy. New here. But I've seen a lot of good info on here. I don't get on the interweb a lot but see this forum often. So I joined. Welp on to my story, we have three awesome! Horses. Then there's my colt. He's a 4 y/o TB. Black/ grey lol. He's insanely willing to learn. Usually one or two exercises and he rembers. That's an honest statement. He kicked at me once when he was 2. Hasn't thought bout it since. He flexes, rides in snaffle or halter, collects, is flat fast! He is so personable it's crazy. First to meet anyone. Wants to ride. Hell be all pouty if we don't ride. He actually has grabbed his halter and brought it to me in pasture while I was pre occupied. But........ Y'all didn't see that coming did ya? Haha!!!!!!!$!! We can work all day in saddle. I'll ride him while I what h our daughter work her horses. Ride him on the Patterns. Use him to guide horses through circles or gates. Have seen my daughter jump on him barebakenand loose lead and halter and ride him. He stands like a statue for tacking and
Mountin. He will be aggressive towards dogs on roads. I do allow him that. And he's put a tune on a few pooches. He's a ninja! Got my heeler once. Dumb dog. Onto my issue, he's a big sissy on the trail! He's head gelding in our herd. Will lead or follow. Prefers to lead. But every now and again we pass the horse eating burnt car (or whatever that day) and crow hops later he's scared to death. Rest of the ride is usually jumpy. On his part. I have never been tossed of him or let him go home after a spook. I just drive through it. But once he's cranked up it's just a pain. He never gets tired! I don't beat him. I work him on hills and he putts QH's to super shame. How do I get him over being a big sissy? Hope I didn't draw out that to much.
