    Ready to give up?!?!?!

    From what you say I think it might help if you go and find a good riding school with a sympathetic trainer and have a few lessons on a well trained horse. You can read up on the theory and have instructors explain it all to you but perhaps you need to feel and experience what you're aiming for...

    Monty Roberts dually headcollar

    Had mine for years, learnt to use it on a Monty Roberts course and it's been on several horses with great success. To be honest though, for me personally these days it's more psychological. As in "right, horse is now wearing the MR headcollar, we are now going to walk up the track/long line/...

    Did he understand me?

    I was in my field a couple of hours ago checking my little herd, routine, not difficult as it's next to my house and I'm down there at least twice a day.
