Wish you luck with your journey. I do think that learning and growing with your horse is extremely rewarding. I learned the most when I started breaking my current Gelding.

I don't exactly know where the offence has been committed here though, I see lots of helpful advice. I've been riding since I could walk and am finding out I don't know near the amount I should. Reading many threads on this forum has helped me so much, showed me techniques I hadn't thought of, and health practices I didn't really know about or were as important as they are.

I don't think the idea of getting a trainer is something to be hurt about. I am trying to save up a bit to go ride with one soon, there's always something to learn and work on. Be it fine tuning, working on balance, or just plain old timing.

Ultimately it's your decision to go it your way or use a trainer's help. These suggestions here are not "YOU HAVE TO DO IT THIS WAY!" But are advice coming from people who have found this path helpful.

Again, wishing you luck with your new filly!

I was a “re-rider” too, and it’s been an interesting journeyback into horses these past 4 years! Mybiggest suggestion is to take a few lessons on a school horse to get a feel forhow everything SHOULD be, then take some lessons on your greenie to learn howto get her there.

Have fun!

That was quick! Not sure why one would join a forum, get a warm welcome, then make a comment like that! This guy is "looking for a new hobby" so gets himself a 3 year old horse, puts it in a pasture (alone I assume), then realizes the horse is still green, but doesn't want help.... all things considered, I think everyone was pretty polite!

On the off chance the OP is reading this, I am also re-learning horsemanship and have found a wealth of advice here! Shame for you to walk away so quickly.

Technically speaking, if he'd started that thread in "member journals", he'd have the right to say, "don't post on my thread". since member journals are like diaries, we allow the 'owner' to maintain some control over content. but, this was in "new to horses', so open to advice.

It doesn't matter. the OP was not really familiar with the nature of forums. If he doesn't like the freedom we have here, he need not stay. no skin off my nose.
