Teaching a horse to walk

I just broke my horse... I never really though of what to do next... Any ideas on how to make her walk under the saddle?

I did a lot of ground driving with verbal cues and then in saddle I used the verbal cues with some leg. I also started by having someone lead him around with me on him.

I started my soon to be 4yr. (he's still just beginning) by learning the squeeze of the leg to move forward, Squeeze, cluck and then spank.....I didn't do the spank but just a poke with my finger LOL did the job, he's pretty sensitive.....

If you don't know how to teach a horse to walk... You shouldn't be training this horse.

Get proffesional help!! You don't sound anywhere near ready to be braking horses.

Braking a horse is not just sitting on one. It is the whole process, lunging, long reining and then riding. You should in theory have done so much ground work before sitting on her that it is a mere formality, horse should already know the basics by the time you climb onto its back.

I agree. Groundwork is a must before you get in the saddle, you need to establish cues and boundaries on the ground so you can reinforce them and have a good base when you're on the horse's back. And before you move forward you should seek some help from someone who knows how to train.

How can a person learn if someone can't ask?
