    And yes, I've watched Clinton and I think if someone came up to him and asked him that question like you did this forum he would have had quite the snarky reply that would have made everything here seem extremely tame. He doesn't baby horses or people.

    And while everyone may not be as organized or prepared as another person - you really need to be to start a horse properly and not ruin them. Like others have said - if you are having difficulty to even get your horse to walk under saddle - get real-life help. A forum can't help much in this situation.

    Getting on a horse squeezing with your leg and praying the horse works out what to do before you smack it one with a stick is not a good way to break a horse. Infact it is a very good way to break a neck when the horse explodes at being smacked. It is also a very good way to confuse a young horse and end up with dangerous behavior undersaddle. I can tell you now that my lad (who i've just broken in) would have litteraly killed you had you done that, you would have been catapulted head first into the ground at speed or into the nearest solid object (he seems to walls)

    I will not teach people how to break a horse over the internet as it is a dangerous occupation in the first place and if you add inexperiance with no proper supervision to the mix and you have a recipe for disaster.

    The best advice anyone could ever give the OP is to get proffessional help NOW before she gets hurt
    Sorry, I will keep my opinion and thoughts to myself.....

    Good plan You are the one offering no advice here. You might not like the "tone" of the others but at least they gave advice while you just derailed the thread arguing yourself in circles.

    If the OP doesn't know how to teach a green horse to walk she has no business training a horse. She needs a professional. Not someone petting her on the head saying "oh its okay deary you can learn from the internet"

    Suddenly I am reminded of the episode of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon taught himself how to swim via the internet then taught himself how to make friends.

    OP get help. All you are going to do is either get yourself and your horse hurt or ruin the horse from not knowing what you are doing. Green + Green = Black & Blue
