What is the first thing I have to teach my first horse?

What is the first thing I have to teach my first horse?
I would start with basic groundwork for any horse. This will gain you respect and let them know that they should be paying attention to you. It’s also a good way to see their temperament and if they are docile and calm or hot headed and feisty
If the horse is just comfortable around humans and that’s it doesn’t ever been ridden I’d say start by halter training and then lunging
depends on what your horse already knows. i usually start with lunging to see what they already know and what needs to be worked on
