i just got my new horse. he is 4 yrs old and gelded and never has been separated from his mom. i even had to take his mom (they were free). he is a great horse. im training him to ride and have made several attempts at stalling him. he either tries to jump the door or he barges through it. he has broke many stall doors and wood. i even tried stalling him with another horse with him in a foaling stall. that did not work. i even had his mom across the hall from him and that did not work. any ideas or helpful hints would be great!!
cross-tying is another downfall. he just will not stand still. he can tie with just a single but not the double :( when he is tied, he paws. when i have him cross-tied he normally turns around in them. but when i turn him the other way he does the same thing.
the lady that has the place where i am keeping him at the moment got the mare (his mom).
biggest problem of his problem maybe because he could be buddy-sour. but he really does not have any horse buddies that his huge side-by-side all the time.
any suggestions will be put to good use. i have never had this problem before so i am stuck. i feel like i have to babysit him all the time. i know he is still a baby kind of. but it is time to spread his wings. it was time for that 3 1/2 years ago.

thanks for reading!!

i just got him 3 weeks ago.
i know it is healthier for him to be out but i would like for him to be able to be stalled in cause of emergencies. also he is my future barrel horse. we will be traveling. i need him to be able to be stalled and tied.
you can not even stand with him. that does not work.
i have not tried the hay because we do not have any square bales.
