First of all, im probabley not going to get a horse anytime soon, but i still like to look. =] lol. Anyways, i would like to rescue a horse, that has been abused and such, he is georgous, and is very grren, but i was thinking about buying a green horse for a cheep price and training it myself, (and have help from a trainer) so i could have a great bond with him. He looks like he is in prefect healt, plus the price isnt all that bad. But my question is, how many of you had rescued a horse, and is it a good idea?

my aunt worked a lot with green horses and trained them herself. she didn't get an abused one though. i have heard from many people that abused horses take a long time to develop trust with a human, but they can prove to be very kind animals. but remember, i was also looking at abused horses for adoption and many organizations don't let you show the horse, so be careful.

How experienced are you? Taking on a green abused horse should generally be left to professionals. I understand you want to find a deep bond, but this situation may ruin any outlook you have on horses, as well as get yourself seriously hurt.

ummm....... I say go for it! i would spend time with him like walking him around before trying ANY training to make a small bond just remember it won't be easy but don't give up! You can do it! 8)

depends on what kind of abuse the horse has been through. Abused horses can be difficult to work with because they get scared and a scared horse is a danger to itself and others.
