What the hardest thing for new riders to learn?

If you have watched people who know how to ride, they make it look easy.  Since you don’t know enough to say how well someone rides, if they don’t fall off, then they are a good rider.  And in the big picture, that’s not so far off.  But the big picture of riding is made up of millions of details that move at the speed of light or at least seem to do so. The prey animal’s brain, in this case the horse, HAS to work faster so the species survives predation.  Their minds work the same way their…See More

Why do people hit their horses to get them to stand still?

It just doesn’t compute for me.  If someone hit me, I’d want to be gone.  And of course, so do most horses.  Now I’m not talking abuse, although you could argue semantics and I would understand your point of view.  I’m talking about your garden variety, “Would you pulleeaase stop moving?!” followed by a slap.Bear in mind that horses are prey animals and as such, are hard-wired to move when they are uncomfortable.  Now the incident that inspired this post occurred at a horse show, but it happens…See More

When do you stop using gadgets and start training horses and riders?

Posted on September 1, 2011 at 1:12pm 0 Comments

I was visiting a barn to teach one of their boarders and a little girl came in from her lesson and joyously told my student that she would now be able to control her horse (an ex-racehorse) because her trainer said she could use a stronger bit.  In all fairness, a lot of trainers are in a pinch because clients can’t afford training rides and when they can, they want fast results.  That said, it all makes my stomach hurt.

 

Training horses is a process and when you take short…

After the hurricane; how did you make out?

Posted on August 30, 2011 at 9:22am 0 Comments

Hopefully, all of you and your animals are safe at home and haven’t suffered too much damage from Hurricane Irene.  It turns out that bacon pizza gets boring after a few days and we got lucky.  My husband thinks it is paranoia, but I prefer to think of it as being pro-active – that’s why we had candles.  It didn’t matter this time because we don’t have kids and had enough food and water for the dog and cat.  I could afford to be reactive, this time. 

 

Maybe it comes from a…

What’s going on in your horse’s head when you are running late?

Posted on August 23, 2011 at 9:33pm 0 Comments

For one thing, he doesn’t know you are late and for another, it’s not his problem unless you take it out on him. So what effect does it have? Like everything with horses, it will depend on the horse. That said, you may cause no behavioral changes because your horse has been around the block a few times and knows that most of what you do and say, has little to nothing to do with him.

It’s a whole different ball game with a horse that tends to worry, either by nature or lessons learned…
