patches is cute i bet he'll be fun to ride when he learns how to be u asked if i have any advice? well i've never worked with a completly unbroken horse before but i'll do the best i can to help. first, u need to gain his trust and respect. a lot of ground work will help, like lunging.also u could look up parelli seven games, these games work wonders with a horses respect and trust in u. the games lay a foundation that u can continue to build on for the rest of your life. once u get his trust and respect then you can move on to saddle work. there's a method used by clinton anderson that if a horse is a really scared of the saddle and pad that he tacks them up (no bridle just saddle) and leaves them alone for the rest of the day, and supposedly that gets them used to it. i'm not sure about the last method just because i've never personaly tried it but i've heard it works. i have used the seven games though and highly recomend it. also if u could blog back and tell me what he already knows i might be able to help more specifficaly(did i spell that right?) left a vote blog back soon

Come visit me, shiloh- thank yall so much everyone!!! & AHHA.

From Quick Silver
Hey Patches! heres a vote. You are very cute. I have a page in memory of eight belles too. To make a young rider cover, you go to the link on the side of the Horse Channel web page, and then scroll down to the Young Rider fun stuff section. Then you click on custom Young Rider magazine and you can make a cover.
As for tips on breaking a horse, I haven't done that myself, but I have read about it. First you should lunge your horse lots, and get him usd to you touching him. Then you can put on the saddle and bridle and get him used to that. Get him to try it on a few times and give him a treat if he's good, and then you could try lunging him with tack. Make sure the stirrups don't bang on him because he won't like that. Stick with that for a while, and then you an start leaning your weight on him some. It might take him a while to get used to that. If you are an experianced rider, you could try riding him then, but he might try to buck you off. You said you wanted to break him in water, but I don't know much about that. All this is from books so you might have to vary it some. Also to get him used to the reins and commands you can walk behind him and have long reins to steer him. I hope I was helpful, but I have never tried it so these instructions might not work. If someone who is experianced gives you different ideas, you can try those to. My horse is going to have a foal this fall, so I will eventually try these myself.

Patches wont let anyone work with him but me so noone can break him and there is a slight problem i have never trained a horse before so if anyone wold like to give me and tips i would be very thankful. I would love to break him in the water becaeuse thanks to lots of tip patches is over is water phobia and then I have heard that they buck less in the water.
So please feel free to leave ideas on my page and a vote would be nice too.

Water Advice
Hey I give you some advice about the water phobia thing. When I got my mare she would NOT go into the wash rack on 2 feet, lots of rearing and freaking out. I have found that anything with horses that are frightened takes 3 very simple things, Time, Patience, & Repetition. Just keep showing him 1 water thing at a time, maybe start with putting water from a hose on his legs, just one leg at a time, start slow. When he backs away keep right with him, you can't give up the lesson until he accepts the water on at least one leg and stops trying to back away. If you quit before that then he'll think there's a reason to be affraid. Just be patient, he'll get there, the more time you spend together the stronger the bond you'll have and the more things you two work through together the more he'll trust you. Good Luck & Don't Give Up!!!
