    New to horses

    Hi Everyone, I am new to Horses but have always loved them. My daughter who is 22 got her first horse about a year ago we always had it boarded but just recently moved it over on to our property after getting a building and pasture fenced in for him. He is a 15 year old paint horse. I really want to get involved with all aspects of horsemanship. So I may have many questions. He really is a great horse very gentle. My daughter took some classes but really is a beginner herself. I just really want to learn and do groundwork with him and be confident enough to ride and handle him, his name is Broker and that fits him well. He is broker than broke. I just need some tips and tricks on what to start with and how to start with him, he is very sweet. Thanks All!

    Welcome the the Horse Forum! Sounds like you're off to a good start with a well broke horse with a good attitude. Much to learn but it's a rewarding journey.

    Lessons! That's the safest way to learn how to interact (ride, ground work, etc.) with horses.

    Or do you know someone with experience that can help you?

    Also you said this is your daughter's horse.. could she help you learn?

    It's so nice to hear about people starting off in the horse world with the right horse!

    Too often newbies take on much more then they are ready for and it turns into disaster.

    I would suggest get in contact with a local horse trainer an get some lessons. Good luck, hope to see some pictures soon!!

    Thank you all, I do know a couple experienced horse people that will be able to help on my journey. I am actually 50 so I am a little late getting started but I am very excited. I would like to find a good trainer in the area that could maybe come out a couple times a week and help us get started with some lessons. We actually live in a little town in Missouri called Auxvasse, if anyone happens to know where that is :). I look forward to talking with you all more and keeping you updated with my progress as well as asking you all some questions and learning from all of your knowledge. Thanks for the advice and I will get some pictures up soon.
