What to expect after training?
We have 3 horses at the trainer right now. They're just being trained for trail riding, nothing more.
The Draft (7-8 years old) is broken but hasn't been ridden in about 2 years. He's just being tuned up.
My Buckskin Quarter Horse (3 years old) is green broke and will be with the trainer for 2 months. Supposedly, he will be dead broke when I get him.
My son's Thoroughbred (3 years old) has only been ridden 4 times. He will probably be with the trainer for 3 months.
When the horses come home after such a short time, will they still be prone to "cut up" if they aren't ridden every day? My eldest son's horse is still bucking and "cutting up" if he doesn't want to listen and he's been broken and ridden a lot over the last year. However, the person that broke this horse used a rougher method.
The trainer breaking our horses is using Clinton Anderson's methods.
