I haven't really had any experience with completely green horses. But I've ridden some green 3 yo's. I.'m a senior in high school so this is my senior project. But I am going to major in equine science so I wanted this challenge. The 2 yo stud colt rears when he gets tired of cooperating. The one year old filly doesn't know how to quielty walk with me. And the 3 yo filly was too immature for her owner to start her under saddle so I'm just 'playing' with her for now. But I can already tell that she needs to learn about personal space.
