This isn't really some thing we can help you with over the internet. You really should get a trainer.

^^ Agreed 100%

However, I will tell you that sacking out is the golden key. Desensitizing before saddle training. Over several colts and fillies with spooky problems, this si the first problem I address.

Do you have any specific questions? Have you had previous experience?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

If you need online help for training young horses, you shouldn't even be working with said horses.


You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown

I think if you want help you should give more background info on your level of experience with horses. Reading, watching clinicians and dvds will help. But I may be able to help with suggestions if you can be more clear and if I know your level.

As much as we would all like to help you there is just to much to relate here on this Forum or any Forum. Self education and research are your best friends at this point with your horses. See if you can find an experienced horse person to help you. Hands on learning is the best way to figure out what you need to know. Keep us informed how it goes for you.

Start with simple things like not letting them walk past you when you're leading, asking them to back up with a light cue, squaring up, light lunging for the older ones... Pretty much all the things that will make getting them started on riding in the future easier. Getting them to understand your body language and vocal cues is good right now.

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.

This a challenge I've taken on. And since your comment was not helpful it does not belong on my post.
