    Question New Horse

    Hi everyone, I have recently purchased my first horse, a black quarter horse named Gambit. He is 9 and is pretty bombproof. I have never owned a horse before, but I have been ridding on and off since I was eleven. I want to do NH with him, but neither of us has ever don it before, I don't want to mess it up and end up with a scared or damaged horse. So I guess I'm asking is who do you guys recommend for NH, I have heard that both Perelli and Anderson are good, and what are some good ground work exercises? Thanks

    I would suggest finding a trainer in your area. You don't have to work with them daily, once a month would be ok to keep you on track. There are plenty of NH trainers out there.

    Thanks, I think the barn he is staying in has a NH trainer they work with.

    Congratulations on your first horse. I would suggest spending some time getting to know him & let him teach you what he knows first. Then after you know him better you can decide what else you would like him to know. He may already be perfect.

    Oh I missed that he was your first horse, how exciting.

    He's very handsome. You must be proud.

    He's beautiful! :)
    I would also love to do NH with my horses, but there is nobody that could show and help me, and I don't know if it would be okay if I just started on my own, especialy because I never did it before...
