    Lol, breaking TB's isn't any different than breaking other horses. Just keep in mind that she is a hotblood, so she may have alot more "get-up-and-go" than some other breeds. This isn't a rule, however. Every breed has it's highstrung ones as well as it's calm, placid horses ;)

    Also, is she a reg. TB? In the pic it looks like she has a neck tattoo, & i've never known a TB to have one.
    She is a sorrel btw (chestnut actually, if you go my TB standards, though it is the same basic color).

    I agree with the above. My TB loves to move! Your best bet is to get her tired lunging before you get on her.
    I never have to ask twice for her to move faster. :)
    I don't have much experience with horses. The only TB I've ever worked with is mine.
    I don't lunge her often, but if I do I don't even bother asking for walk until she gets some energy out of her. She would walk, if asked, but I found she works much better when we do it with a positive attitude.

    Thanks For the tips.. im pretty nervous but I know she trusts me some. One day her and the horse in the pen next to her where (both in heat) well they where bumpin heads and I went out there to go see her and they where just being a little rough rearing and kicking a little. So I went to grab her halter (she didnt see me) and reared and then she caught me outa the corner of her eye Dropped down slowly (wich looked kinda funny Slow mo)and then came to me.. I was all warm inside(very happy).. So for a rescue malnurished horse I thought that was pretty awesome!!

    Try to relax when you are with her. Horses can tell when you are nervous.
    She sounds like a good natured horse.

    Just wondering; you said she is a rescue. Hope you don't mind me asking. Did you get her from a horse rescue? Or if not, how did you end up with her?

    My mom told me about some people who the economy crushed and they needed help with thier horses so I went to look at them and she wasnt in very good shape but really cute and I never owned my own horse so I was thrilled and picked her. They told me that they called her lil Diablo (lil devil) cause she had a biting problem. She tried to bite me once so I smacked her nose and she kinda looked at me like "OH guess im not getting away with that" and that was the last time. So I got pretty lucky Comin across her!
