Cool what should i do with horse that have been riden in a few years

well my dads friends parents have hores and they keep it on their sons property. One horse go getter is traind and we can trot with her a lead, brush and put the pad on her back. We havent tried the saddle yet. and Laciee has been trained before but hasnt stcuk because no one has riden her. Ops has no training shy but very sweet and go getter is older than laciee is middle and ops is pretty young. We have visted then 4 times any input on how you would "train" them?

What training information are you looking for?

It would be helpful to us if you could give more information on what you have been doing with each horse and what you are wanting to do with them.

Silly question, but do the owners of these horses know you are handling them? Just curious, since it sounds to me like you go over with your dad to his friends house, which is where the horses are, although they do not belong to him. You might want to ask the owners what the horses have done before you go too far. There may be a reason they have not been ridden.
