My New horse is turning out to be quite the project for me, but that's okay. I love him to death!!!! He has a problem though. His old owners never taught him to tie. They always had someone hold him when working with him (grooming and tacking up), so now if I put him in the round pen to lunge he goes crazy, but the minute i take him by the halter he's fine. It takes me a while to get him to walk into the wash rack because they didn't have one where he is from, but at my stables that's where you tack up your horse. His old owners said they tried to cross tie him before and he sat down and pulled the cross ties out of the wall. I'm nervous about putting him in them because I don't want him to hurt himself. How do you teach a horse to tie? Especially one who gets scared if there isn't someone by his head at all times?
