Talking hello from scotland

hi, i'm Giz to my friends. i only know english i'm afriad so you may have to help me understand sometimes. i've been reading the forum and you guys seem really friendly. I have a yearling (16 months) of unknown breeding but he's thought to be a tb x cob. he's my pride and joy, i've been riding for a long time on other peoples horses and finally managed to get my own. His name is Riley, hope you don't mind me bothing you on silly qustions on breaking and best horse management. my mum is a huge help with helping while i'm at work so may pop on. i am interested in parailli and other more natural ways and ideas on working with horses, i have no experience in this apart from a little bit of join up, and think with Riley's history it would benefit him.
I have done a little of most things but want to learn more about western and plan to bring riley on to work sidle saddle and in the shafts.
Riley sadly had a hard upbringing, he was a meat pony and was taken from his mum to early, he's soft as anything but sadly still shows the scars. He has a few behavioural issues but nothing i can sort out with some help!

giz and suz(mum)oh and riley!

Welcome to you, your mom and Riley
You might check out the horse video section. a couple of the mods have posted a few training video's and there are a few Parelli ones.
