Unhappy leasing a young horse and want to train with natural horsemanship help me please :D

I am going to start leasing a horse soon quite a young a standard-bred/Clyde called whiskey 15.3hh he is ridden without a bit (a rope halter with clip on reigns) he's a great horse really responsive.

I am 14 and have had quit a lot of experience and just ride for pleasure.

Whiskey hasn't ridden much he's 4 and when his owner got him she rode him for a few months then he had an injury took about 6 months to get bit better like now and now she's pregnant and she's leasing him because she wants him to get ridden more often and trained do you think I would be able to train him and handle him?

He is young and "allover the show"but really calm and dependable, you can touch him anywhere and he doesn't spoke.

His injury on his foot is a bit swollen now and she said it would probably stay that way is there anyway I could fix that?and is it okay to ride with?because she has a boot on it all the time because sometimes he might kick it or something , its right by the hoof I bot around the back of the left front leg

Also I was thinking of training him with parelli natural horsemanship

I can't wait I get him for a yer and the summmer holidays are coming up

Ps. Does anyone have any ideas about the seven games or some simple fun things to do with him that are fun and will increase our bond ???

Pss. Would he be alright in a padock with to over cows ?

I can't wait he's so cool and I get him for a year

I haven't heard a lot of good about Parelli from other people, so I comment about him. But I do know that Buck Brannamen and Clinton Anderson are very good.

As far as the cows, my mare always acted so terrified when I tried to ride her past cows in a separate pasture where I used to board. Bought my own place (complete with cows) and she kicked them out of their barn the first night!

If you are going to train with natural horsemanship methods, I highly recommend Clinton Anderson. His techniques are the only ones I've had success with.

PP has some very good stuff, he also talks alot of crap. I use a barstardisation of parelli. I take the stuff I like ignore the other stuff and add in my own stuff.

My horse doesn't run into the stick she get a whack with it

Also have never analyses her horsanality I know her and how she works.

Parelli can be good if you know enough to see what will work for you. There is no one fit scenario.

How much experience have you had and will you be working with a trainer?

I ask this because I've discovered that when you get your first few horses they should be one below your experience level, especially if you're not working with a trainer.

First find out what the owner does with HER horse. Do not start training or working with a horse and use a method that you have never use and know little about on a horse who is not yours. If I leased a horse out and someone used PP on them I would string them up. So ask first do as the owner wishes not what you think you want to do.

I would do worse things then stringing them up. Hahaha

But I agree, ask first.

Would you run a marathon with a sore leg? I don't think so. I'd get a vet out and check that. If the swelling doesnt go down I wouldnt even think about getting on him, Just a bit of work can make it become even worse. I agree with everyone else and I know how excited you are but really, you need to get that leg checked out defiently before you ride him or start any work.
Good luck! :)

If you google Carolyn Resnick's website you will learn a bit about how she builds trust. She believes in just hanging out with the horse at first, in his paddock. I learned this as a kid many years ago and it works. I am pm'ing you.
