Tips and advice for a horse amateur?
Hi, my name is Haylea, I'm 15 and I've always loved horses but my only real experience had been a few riding lesson I took and now I've acquired four new horses who all need lots of work and training.
Montana- I was told that she was ridden once or twice, she won't let me touch her hooves or stomach. I'm not sure but I think she may be pregnant, she has an 8 month old colt(Aspen) who I still need to wean from her. She has an an onry stubborn temper and only seems to want to be around me when I have food. Any suggestions to getting her more trained, like letting me lift her hooves?
Spirit- I think she is about 4 years old, she had a filly when she was 2 and just gave birth to a colt a few days ago(Casper). She has not been broken but is sweet tempered and lets me lift her feet. Any suggestions on breaking her?
Aspen- He will be a yearling the first week of September, and needs to be weaned from Montana. He has let me touch him very few times but for the most part won't let me touch him. Any suggestions on weaning and getting him to come close to me?
Casper- Colt born a few days ago. Any suggestions on how to start working with him and the things I should start doing?
As you can see I pretty much need help and suggestions on a wide variety of things and any advice is much appriciated.
