I came across Horse forum and just can't tell you how much all of you have helped me already! I had horses when I was 20 (I'm 58 now). Things were different then. 80 dollars for full board compared to the 550 I'm paying now. Anyway, I do have alot of experience training and working with horses but this 7 month old gelding of mine has me stumped. Every day I halter him, brush him,pick up his feet,ground tie him which he is perfect at already. The problem is when I walk him from his stall to the big arena to turn him out for some exercise he gets halfway there with alot of coaxing and then plants his feet and won't budge. I'm patient with him. Tell him nothing to be afraid of but no go. So finally we turn around and he almost runs over me to get back to the barn. There is nothing scary on the way to the barn. What do I do? I feel like I'm doing wrong giving in to him.
