First get to know your horse because, you two are basically strangers. So what you do first is you reach out with your hand and make sure your hand is flat, and let your horse smell your hand. Make sure he\she knows that you aren't a threat, that is really important for your horse to know. after that you need to pet him and make sure that he/she knows that you are the boss. If you don't establish that early on he/she will take advantage of that and start bossing you around instead. Also make sure that you spend a lot of time with your horse so that way you can form a bond with him/her. To assert you dominanice you need to tack him/her up and then start riding. If he/she acts up the give the reins a nice tug, but not to hard. If he/she keeps doing it then talk to a profesional because he/she might have something more problems than just behavior flaws.

These are all the bones of a horse. I would reccomend that you take a good hard look at all of the bones, it might be useful.
To tame a horse you need to first get your horse to be comfortable to be around you. Then you can slowly start building your trust-bond with him/her by riding her/him, grooming him/her, and just spending time with him/her. After building up your trust bond with him/her then you can start doing some more serious things EX: racing, shows, and jumping. Show your horse all the love and attentoin like its your life. Baby it like you never have before if you want your horse to trust you. Your horse is more important than even the best of riches because you two could make a very strong bond with it that it might get sick while your away for a long time. For illness purposess I would reccomed that you get the book: Horse Owners Veterinary Handbook: Second Edition By: James M. Giffin, M.D. and Tom Gore, D.V.M.
These are signs of colic a horrible, horrible disease that could probably kill your horse if you don't see the signs right away. The main sign of colic is when your horse starts rolling for a very long time. If your horse gets colic then you must act immediatley. Call your vet and she/he will take care of it.
To groom your horse you need to first get the correct brushes for each part you are grooming. Use your curry comb first. Start rubbing in a circular motion on its body to get rid of any loose dirt. Next grab your mane and tail brush and start brushing out the tangels but try to be as gentle as you can so you won't hurt your horse.After that repeat but with your mane and tail comb. Next grab your face curry comb and brush his/her face gently.
First things first, it's time to tack up. First, brush your horse (look at Grooming Your Horse). After that, grab your lead robe and riding bridle and tie up him/her. Next grab your saddle blanket and put it in the center of your horses back. Next, put a saddle in the middle of the saddle blaket. Then, tie the girth properly. Next, put on the bridle and reins. Don't forget to put the bit in his/her mouth. He/She will most likely not understand what you want from them if you don't have that important piece in it's mouth.
