I have had him for 2 months and would love to keep him. " I have finely got him back in shape again" But I have a child and what to make should Lemon will be safe for my son to pet and love on.

I would not go with a highschool student. Although there are many highschool and college students that are good with horses, if this is a horse with serious ground problems and a possible abusive past, you want someone that has delt with horses similar on mutiple occasions.

I own a rehab center in Franktown, Colorado, where we have several trainers that all have very different techniques to working with horses. We have horses that are as abused as it gets, and the only way people can catch them is by roping them in the pasture like cattle. Then we have horses come in and there only problem is trailer loading. Give me 30 days, and i could have your guy fixed

If your interested my e-mail is {Removed by Moderator}: Please tell people to contact you via private site mail here if interested - do not post personal emails or phone numbers in the public rooms. Thank you. My Cell phone is currently broken

Default Horse in need of ground manners.

Did you find a suitable trainer for your horse yet? If not I have a trainer in mind that is in your area. He is in Mansfield GA and has trained horses for over 60 years he is also a corrective farrier.. Write if you want his number {Removed by Moderator}: Please tell people to contact you via private site mail here if interested - do not post personal emails or phone numbers in the public rooms. Thank you.
I am also a trainer and have been for years but am in the Perry area sorry did not write sooner but busy with the holidays.

I can tell you how to do it yourself and save a bundle of money. Send me a PM or just post say so here and I'll put it right here.

By the way, I agree that someone in high school "and cheep" may be well intentioned, but like everything else, you get what you pay for.

Default Son isn't really safe.

Horses who have been beaten respond abnormally at times--particularly when something/anything triggers an old memory/defense. Like people.
A young person usually is a whirlybird of voice and movement. Unexpected voice/tone/loudness and unexpected movement(s) and unexpected sights such as a piece of a board or sign or stick or blowing paper trigger the horse unexpectedly as you know, so the son must be taught how to never
surprise the horse. For the next few years only allow your son to be close to the horse if you are supervising. Supervise but let him learn/see/sense when the horse might kick, bite, bolt, or generally be aggressive, just as
a neglected/mistreated child might "freak out" unnecessarily. The old defenses are hard to get over for the horse as with the beaten/mistreated child. Over time as the horse learns to trust again and the defenses fade you'll be able to tell when your son will probably be safe. No one is ever
100 percent safe with horses is the best philosophy to have. An ideal horse in mind could stumble and fall on someone accidentally. Teach your
son to handle the horse one step at a time and it'll help the horse learn your son's movement patterns/styles. Boys moves so quickly and erratically. One reason horses often don't like to be around small ponies is
because the ponies can move so quickly and unexpectedly that the horses
feel vulnerable to harm---they have predators in their brain/memories and will even spook at shadows that they feel threatened by.
Take him over to the Ga international horse park when you can so he can
be inspired by the other guys on horses. Most of the shows there are free to attend. Carry your own snacks/picnic lunch. Why not?? They have a website that has an events calendar (if you didn't know). Happy
trails.

Try rewarding your horse when he does something you want him to do and work with him gently but firm so he knows you mean business once you work with him he will realize that you are not out to hurt and he will begin to trust you. Once you gain his trust you can pretty much do anything with him as far as ground work. Most of the horses I have trained and work with simular backgrounds I now can do anything to. Trust is the key to a good relationship.Treats are always a good positive way to get a horse to behave just like you would if you were trying to teach a puppy a new trick...
