    Since the horses and your fiancee are already trained, I'd say you're the one who would benefit most from training, OP.

    At 18 and 25 y/o those horses are old pros at their jobs, so the only unknown equation here is you.

    Just time spent with the animals will help with the bonding process. You don't need to get sucked into any high dollar 'games', or a regimen that promises woo-woo, mystical bonding garbage.

    NO WAY SR. Say its not true!

    I dunno.. my old man was very well trained and as he got older he got worse.. kinda like how old dogs go deaf to 'sit, lie, heel' until they hear the food bag rattle

    Duffy, I'm not saying an old pro won't take advantage, because I know for a fact many of them will!

    My heart horse was one of those. If you knew what you were doing, he was wonderful under saddle. If you didn't, he was more than happy to make you wish you'd never met him!

    Evil little beast. I miss him every day....

    Oh yes.. but they won't take the mickey to the extent a young, unsure horse will...

    I miss mine too, some times I wish I'd never sold him, but he has a better realtionship with the lady who has him now, and I get to see him daily :)

    But they are burgers - in the nicest way possible...

    Mine's buried out in my front pasture. 21 years together wasn't even close to enough time.

    Yes, it was. I wouldn't have missed that 21 year dance for anything.
