Thoughts about training your first horse ( OTTB) coming off the track

Thoughts about training your first horse ( OTTB) coming off the track
Be consistent and calm and patient or will stress and worry him
Ottbs are fun because unlike warmbloods they rarely go up and down unless you teach them to, just forward and fast.
I have a ottb as well and the first thing you need to do if not already is let him stay in a pasture for a while to get use to the place. If you just bought the horse you want that energy grain to leave his system before working with him or else you'll add stress to him.
