The answer is: YOU don't.

He's 20. How old are you? How much experience with retraining horses do you have?

No need to answer the questions. The fact you've asked your original question is answer enough.

I suggest you ride him in a small enclosed area near or with his buddy and simply enjoy the fact he lets you on his back at all.

And the whole 'see-saw' advice needs to be thrown out the window, stomped on, and buried six feet under because if you use it, that's where you'll end up.

People that do this are looking for quick short cut ways to dominate the horse without any thought about the horse al all. The people that do this have not taken the time to understand cause and effect and quick fixes tend to be just that...QUICK but not permanent fixes.

Yeah, you're totally right. You know everything about me and my horse!!!

Well that was a sharp response to someone looking for help. I guess we all can't be starting to learn about our horses. I guess you were just blessed knowing everything without haveing to LEARN...

Well if you get sent to the hospital with a broken neck, don't blame the horse.

Would you prefer to be dead, or crippled for life? This isn't a game. These are large animals with free will, capable of doing intentional or unintentional great damage to themselves and others.

I started the right way...with a well-respected and successful mentor. Did a two year apprenticeship with them and passed an elaborate test to become a licensed trainer. I kept my mouth shut, watched, then researched and studied at every opportunity. I continue to watch, research and study, though admittedly the mouth opens far more often now because I've got something to say based on a lot of experience and knowledge.

You asked a question and I gave you the best possible answer from my 25yrs of experience. If you want to learn to swim, you don't jump into the ocean, you start in a kiddie pool with water wings and work your way up.

If you aren't in a position to learn under better circumstances, then you're best to wait until you are. Since you're unlikely to listen to that, I've told you how to stay alive and be as safe as this situation allows for.

No this latest answer was one of respect for me and the animal. I am willing to put in the time. I need to learn where to start. You stated you did apprenticship. Then that is what I will look for in my area. It is not that I am unwilling just new. You Too started somewhere that is all I am looking for.
