I agree with Calamity. There is a difference b/w making a horse dead and making a horse calm with things when there is no reason to be worried.
To the OP....it sounds like you are a very extroverted person. That's great! However, the 7 Games *might* seem boring to you, but as a skill you must learn patience. Not just in horsemanship, but in everything. You have to understand that those 7 Games are your foundation for EVERYTHING you do with your horse. Your horse sounds like an introvert. For introverts, you need to slow things down and give them time to think, which will be hard for your personality, but you can do it. And if you were working your horse in the round pen at liberty when you said things didn't work, well, that's your problem. Starting at liberty isn't a good thing to do, it just sets you and the horse up for failure. Does all that make sense?
