Thanks for the help! I have been walking him around in the indoor at my barn where he’s been a little fresh but is getting used to the surroundings again. Before I broke my hand, he had been getting really good at standing at the mounting block, which he wasn’t used to, but sometimes (especially on his fresher days) when someone would hold him, he would get really tense and flip his head or trot off when I swung over. I think I should just continue to walk him on the ground and try getting on him when it’s time. I think I will be okay with out a sedative and he would be more tense if someone walked him. Maybe I will put my saddle on him and walk him next time. Thanks!
