You'll get the hang of it. Ride around the MacFarlane's Ranch area or just somewhere safe where there are plenty of random encounters along the road and there aren't wolves and cougars roaming around.

save your game and go on some freeroam shenanigans... just keep heading off in different directions, trying stuff out... when you die, just re-load and head a different direction... basically, just stick with it and you'll get the hang of it... if you've played GTA IV then, you should be pretty familiar with the controls... the horses will take some time getting used to but, just keep at it... it doesn't take long to get used to the auto-aim, the horse controls (R1 for brake!!!) and the map...

i've watched friends learn how to play this by just freeroaming and heading off into a direction... when it's their turn again, they seem to picked up what they did last time, and apply that to their next shot... you can learn a lot by saving first and just freeroaming for a bit, reloading when you die...

If you've played GTA IV, it's similar. Everyone here had to get used to the controls. I went a good way into the story before I got decent at the controls.

I always set the game controls to 'Classic' and up the (aim?) sensitivity. Also, spend some time shooting at birds while on horseback and mess around with your 'Dead Eye'.

I didn't increase the sensitivity (yes it's your aim and turning) until I started playing Expert multiplayer modes. I think it's still kind of slow compared to FPS games.
