training horse to pull timber...
I recently bought a shire gelding and want to work him pulling timber. I have a pony that I trained myself already working with me and all has gone well but im alot more apprehensive about training the shire, I guess his size is putting me off. The pony was the first horse I ever broke and I put alot of time and thought into it, and it couldnt have gone better. He enjoys his work, has perfect manners and knows exactly what is expected of him. It gave me a big confidance boost to see him turn out so well and now i've just started training 'the big guy' but can't seem to get rid of the nerves and the feeling of 'am I doing this right?', and I keep questioning myself even though I know the meathod is sound.why am I suddenly so worried? Anyone else experiance this? Anyone else work horses, would love to hear about training meathod, tips etc.
