first of all you will probably have to build up his muscles for this you can use hill work doing walk or canter up and down hills this really develops the muscles through the back and hindquarters, also its best if they have self-carrage so thye are balenced i good bit to get them to do this is a waterford snaffle, these are good because they canot lean on them so it will teach them they cannot lean on it this will make alot of diffrence when showing them ridden and in hand, it is also good if you can get them working in an outline.but the waterford wont do much good for that i pelham is a good bit to school in but with a pelham you use double reins. pelhams are strong bits so you have to have steady and knowlageable hads with them. also confromation and temprement are very important, if your stally is very green then it is best to take him to as many shows as possible even if you dont compete so thye will get used to things and have more experience and confidence.

hope this helps xxxxx
