You are going to hate me after this post.
But this needs to be said.
Because I am afraid of either you or the horse getting hurt in the long run.
I'd like you to read this whole thread - Buying a horse that's right for you.
If you don't want to, I'd like you to read this section I post below. I said none of this. All is quoted from the thread I linked above, written by smrobs, a very intelligent forumer.
"“I want to get a young horse so that we can learn together”. That is the most naive and asinine idea that there ever was and someone will end up hurt. Young horses are completely unpredictable and unpredictability with an inexperienced rider or handler is always
It happens all the time and I can currently think of at least 3 open threads about this exact thing and the stream of them seems to be never ending.
“I’m a beginner and I am trying to train my horse but they are doing <insert misbehavior here>. What do I do?”
I know that many people who know nothing about horses tend to jump in head first without checking to see how deep the water is and that’s why I’m writing this post, in hopes of maybe educating some people so that they can save themselves, and an innocent horse, a lot of trouble.
I enjoy books and movies like The Black Stallion, National Velvet, My Friend Flicka, and the like as much as anyone but I think it’s time we get realistic. Love doesn't train a horse. Nobody can take a horse that has behavioral issues like bucking, bolting, rearing, biting, kicking, charging, etc, etc, etc and re-train it to be a perfect, respectful companion with nothing but hugs and kisses and sugar cubes. It simply doesn't work that way."
I do apologize, but it needed to be said ... I'm sorry if I offended anyone, for that was not my intentions. I suggest taking some riding lessons, going to some horse camps, getting all the information you can possibly get! In the meantime, maybe consider selling your current horse, letting the grass grow back, and buying back when you are just a little more educated in the world that is horses. There is just too much that we cannot feed to you through a forum. Please, consider your options.
