Episode 125-Retraining older horses vs starting with a clean slate

Today I’m answering two questions about older horses. One about restarting and one about a horse that doesn’t want to listen when he can’t see the herd.

What is the difference between training a young horse vs retraining an older horse? Are there different risks starting an older horse under saddle?
When working with herd bound horses…why does it seem like they just don’t want to listen? Is there a difference between a subtle cue and a clear cue?

    Thank You so much for this! We have an A Bar Ranch bred QH that is 18 and is super talented in Ranch riding , dressage and trail. Unfortunately somewhere along the line someone used him as a gaming horse. He is therefore sour at shows when he goes to enter the ring. Hopefully this will help us restart him so he’s not so anxious.
