Question: I had horses years ago but I never dealt with them, my kids did everything. Now I bought one for my grand daughter and I pretty much know nothing about them but the basics. I was wanting you to just send me as much information that you can on how to train one right. She's too young to really do anything with her, but my grand kids are 2 and 1 and I want the horse to be well mannered and trained right for them.
