My old trainer was probably the best horsewomen I will ever know. I started out riding the perfect horse, then I was switched to a green little welsh pony who I felt I just couldn't control. He refused jumps, he wouldn't allow anyone to catch him, he ran off with me, he was a brat..... But my experience with that pony is wy I am who I am today, and why I ride like I do today. It thought my to ride, not just to look pretty in the saddle. Although it was frustrating at times, I look back and I don't regret any of it. I think that you should keep your horse, and get a trainer. It will be a good learning experience for both you and your horse.

If you are unable to afford professional help and feel uncomfortable around your horse place him in a new home. Horses with his manners are a dime a dozen and you would do best placing him into a safe situation. Don't get hurt. A horse that doesn't respect your space can be dangerous. Be careful, like you said you may be in over your head. If you are in the situation where someone can help you take advantage of it.

I've decided to keep him. I don't have access to professional training, but the barn where I board has lots of experienced people and one of them has offered to help me with him.

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
