There are way too many times where a person wants a horse so bad and they go out and buy one for the wrong reasons or they find a free horse to just find out later there is no such thing as a free horse. If you are toying with the idea to become a horse owner consider spending time with a horse or leasing a horse first. You should learn the ins and outs of having one of these great animals in your family. You should learn how to groom your horse as well as how to do basic training for you and the horses to earn respect and build a healthy ongoing relationship between you and your horse. You will learn the actual cost and time required to care for your horses and what to look for in a boarding facility in the case you do not have your own property. How to administer first aid or when to call a veterinarian.
So you have this horse that will not do anything you want it to do. How about your horse does everything but cross over water. Maybe he spooks when it hears a noise. Perhaps your horse has never been saddle broke. First, you need to have the problem resolved, then you need to learn a few foundation techniques to make sure that your horse does not forget what it has learned.
It is important to realize that no two horses are alike. Where one horse can overcome an issue in three days to a week. Some may take a month.
Our philosophy is that horses are eager to do what they are asked if they understand their jobs and are asked correctly. From starting young horses under saddle to retraining horses that have developed bad habits, we should apply firm but gentle holistic training methods, using clear cues, repetition, and ample rewards to bring out the willing partner inside your horse.
These bad habits should be corrected on the ground and under saddle:
- Begging/mugging for treats
- Pulling on the lead line
- Breaking gait
- Refusal to go forward
Whether you have a green horse or an old campaigner, you should have the safest, most enjoyable relationship possible. A polite horse will:
- Stand quietly for the Ferrier, veterinarian, and floater
- Lift its feet for picking
- Drop its head to accept the halter or bridle
- Stand quietly for saddling and mounting
- Load into a trailer
- Walk quietly beside you
- Yield to bit or hackamore (jaquima) pressure
- Respond immediately to leg cues
