Well i will be back home from visiting my mom in about a month.
We are building a nice size round pen about 60'. and my dad is clearing everything out of the barn so i can ride her during the winter. (she will have something smaller to go in during the winter though)
Any way, i have read that when you do ground work with a horse you lounge them.
Well i have never lounged a horse, and i dont think sandy has ever been lounged. So i dont really know how to do that.
Could someone tell me how you are suppose to do that? I have also never used a whip, what kind would be best. After she is used to be ridden again and listens while being ridden im going to teach her to jump. Do i need a different whip for that.
please help! i want to start riding her again, but i also need her to listen. Will a 60' be big enough to ride her around in? I will not ride her out side it till i know she will listen, and when i feel we are both ready.
I hope its ok that i ask it here, i just really need some help.

Erica, I think the best thing for you to do is take lessons but if you can't do that then I recommend reading lots of books and watching some good training DVD's. It's really hard to explain over the internet and it's better to see someone do it.

Good luck and let us know how you do :-)

Thanks Tracy.
I think i would be at a lost if she wasnt already trained.
She is fine bareback.
But my dad told me he was going to get me into lessons, and im going to try to get a job at the stables down the road, that way i can watch and learn and its something i like doing. and its just a few miles from me.
Thanks again. Hey i wonder if youtube has any good vids lol. this one girl said she was going to make me vids of how she is going to train her horse to jump, so im excited to watch that. i dont think it will take sandy long before she is back and use to being riden. but it may take me a while before i ride out side the safty of the round pen. lol

Working at a barn is the best way to learn things, that's how I started. I worked for many years at a dressage barn and learned all the basics and eventually how to train horses. I got free lessons for my work and continued to better my riding.

I would be careful watching videos on Youtube because anyone can post there, it doesn't mean they really know what they are doing. I hope you get to work at that barn and have lessons because it really is the best way to learn. Good luck! :-)

Erica, I don't know if you noticed yet or not but Marilyn has posted in the July foal watch thread that Dora had her foal but they had to put Dora down. She's obviously devastated but I'm sure would love to hear from you.
