    Won't move

    How do you train a horse to move, that has been trained to stand still. Does that make sense? Probably not. Ok, so here is the deal. My friend is working with a 5 year old blm mustang. His previous owner taught the horse to do nothing but stand still. They taught him that because their autistic (sp?) wanted to hang on a horse. So, he literally stands there. Now that he has a different owner, who wishes to ride, cannot get him to move. No amount of coaxing, leg pressure, or anything will get him to go. He lunges in the round pen ok, not great. But, the biggest problem is when someone is on his back. How should she go about teaching him to move? She thought ponying him around with someone on him would work. I do not have any ideas. What do you think?

    This might take a lot of time to retrain out of him. You will have to start over and start from the ground. You may have to ground drive him. Ponying might work. Give it a shot.
