Right now he's learning all about big horse things. I'm starting slow with basic groundwork like teaching him to lunge (ok at the walk, exciting at the trot), and to be used to having a rope all over parts of his body. He learned how to wear a saddlepad last week and went from NO WAY! to MEH in one session.
One of my current favorite horse trainers on Youtube is this guy, Warwick Schiller. He's a NH type trainer who does tons of groundwork with his client's horses. He believes that good groundwork makes good horses and after carefully studying his videos I tend to agree. Click on this video and look at the other videos he has made and watch the quiet progress of this young horse from rank to well behaved.
Here's baby Al with his first time feeling weight on his back, I don't have a timeline for actually getting on him and he probably needs to wear a saddle first anyway but it was a good moment. He has "ack!" baby horse spazz moments that blend in nicely with his "whatever moments."
