I am thinking about different methods/lessons I could have with my horse. He is 4.5 years Paint gelding, and I have had him 5 mths. He has been pretty nippy, pushy & rude, and has been off having training which has gone well. He seems really more patient and nicer. I tend to be very passive and nervous with horses and the trainer thinks he needs more assertive handling, i.e. to keep on top of him. Does anyone have much expereince with Parelli stuff and would it be helpful to my situation. My other thought is to sell the horse on to a stronger rider/horseperson, and look for an older more laidback type. Any input would be welcomed. I should point out that due to his unattractive behaviour so far I have not got really attached to this horse, although he seems very different after retraining.
