    Thanks again. I've lost more confidence than the horse!! Today I just spent time grooming and did some in hand and lunge stuff.
    He was all of a sudden petrified of the saddle for the first time and refused to go into the stable a couple of times? I worked through everything though because I realise I can't let him not do anything once I have asked, gotta finish what you start.
    Defenatly think he has spooked himself majorly when I came off because when my sis took stirrups off to dismount last night he froze on the spot and shrunk as small as he could. Also think he's beggining to test me though!!
    Thanks for the advice on here its all been fantastic and is helping with confidence. Im trying to get hold of the girl who broke him to see if she's staying in spain or not. If she's home I will defenatly get her to work on him some more with me because the last thing he needs is my bag of nerves on him when he's already gotten spooked. Try and get some pics up here when I pull my act together!!
    THANKS AGAIN everybody for your time!!

    Probably isn't a healthy thing, but I ride and train beat when I am angry or hurt. Makes me that much more determined to do well.

    Don't be afraid to drop me a message if you want a dose of encouragement from another mom! =)
    I understand exactly how you feel. I recently bought an OTTB after being out of horses for 15 years! I always rode AQHA and this is very different. I love it dearly. But, enjoy your journey.It is wor

    I can assure you you're not the first to get complacent on a greenie!!

    The fall probably has spooked him next session you have with him do more desensitizing to the act of you getting on. Playing with stirrups belly on belly off etc.

    I'm surprised no one replied to this particular post..

    Green horses do this. They don't know whether the saddle is nice or evil.. it just sits on their back and that's life. So at times they will spook. Just keep on desensitizing your horse to it, act like it's nothing. It helps to let them sniff it :)

    I personally like to make as much noise as possible and let the horse know it's okay. Cookies help if he's particularly nervous, just watch your feet and make sure he isn't tied. Have someone hold him while he gets used to the saddle being "loud."

    You're right about both things. He is spooked about you falling off, and he is testing you. It's GOOD that he's testing you.. shows he wants to learn the right from the wrong.

    But you have a great attitude :) Finish what you started, but END on a good note!!
