    I'm sorry but I don't have time to read every response. This may have been already said. He looks like a horse that could have ulcers. Ulcers are painful and can make a nice horse be very not nice. It is something you might want to look into. My horse has ulcers and it really can make her very angry due to the pain. (she is being treated now). Although she is only ever aggressive to her barn, corral pipes, or other horses, and only if I am not there.

    I would not lunge with a line for right now. You could get really hurt. He could get really hurt.

    He is a very good looking horse by the way.

    If you can get a trainer, even one lesson a week would help you so much. Just get the right kind of trainer. Not a person to butt heads with him but one that will be smarter than him and show you how to better control his actions.

    I would work on having him walk with you, not behind or infront of you but at your side about 4 feet away from you. Work on stopping and he must stop with his shoulder at your body or he has to back up. You may want to do that with him any time you think he isn't paying attention.

    Make sure he is getting enough excersize too.

    But wait on the lunging until you are confident doing it or a real tragity could happen. Believe me, I know.

    One thing that is important is to be confident in everything you do. Even if you aren't, fake it. The horse won't know the difference, for the most part. But if your body language and thinking is that you aren't sure of what your doing, he will pick up on that right away.

    I don't think he is a bad horse by any means. He's just treating you like you are his equal, and that is a very dangerous thing. So, remember that you have to act like a leader. Be cool and calm. If he goes into your space go into his space with the whip held high and make yourself large as you can. But really I would be getting a trainer if I were you.

    If money is an issue sometimes they will let you work off lessons.

    Good luck and I do think he is beautiful

    But the best of course would be to get a trainer to help you. It may take several before you find one you like but soon enough you will and that should help you so much.

I have never had one rub, or even leave a mark, or be confusing.
    As I said - its each to their own and if something works for you then you go with that
    In the UK we just don't use rope halters - other than maybe in recent years people who've latched on to the Parelli & Co. Thing and 'gone western'.
    The nearest thing we have to rope halters is a canvas and rope thing considered to be a 'poor mans' halter that they leave on some auction horses as per rules that they have to be left with some sort of a headcollar and the broad white canvas ones they traditionally show welsh cobs in

    Yes TBForever that's the type I mean. It's funny to see how different we do things all around the world, one of the many reasons I like this forum!
    The reason i'd never use anything but a rope halter is I believe webbing or leather halters train the horse to lean and pull on the handle where as a rope halter gains much more respect and keeps your horse lighter. I also would never use a light long lunge lead like the one in your 1st video I think they act like an elastic band and no 'bump' can travel down it to your horses head if he gets ignorant.

    Hey;

    You can only do the best you can and it sounds like you are doing your best. It sucks when you aren't able to do what you want to for your horse. But don't stress it. Just do what you can and continue to learn and improve.

    I tried lunging w/o a whip yesterday, no go lol, he wouldnt move and when I did get him moving he would stop, id walk towards him with a I mean it body language he just stood there and pinned ears, he was a butt, so got whip out and he listened, didnt pop him with it tho, but him seeing it encourages him to move

    The fact that he's an OTTB and is happy to ride so quietly on a wide open space must tell you what a basically good temperament he has
