I think I have done some good. He used to BOLT now he walk and trot on loose rein, his head used to be SUPER high now it is not super high.

Morganshow, I know you love your horses and try very hard... however I have seen posts and videos that make me think you really need help. I remember seeing a post where you were looking for another horse and said Rowdy was all trained. Then you post a vid of Rowdy racing around and you doing a rough job on his mouth with a not so nice bit...

I respect your love of horses but I am worried. When I was your age I had constant supervision of very smart horse trainers. I don't think you are getting that. Please be careful and think of your horse.

Thanks for listening to my rant ?":)

Morgan, you have. You said that you had hired a trainer. Then you said you were going to hire a trainer. You said that you would not use a harsh bit. Then you posted a picture of yourself using a harsh bit.

You said you wouldn't do barrels or jump until he'd had more training. Then you said you hadn't hired a trainer yet. So......your story changes quite often.

Why would you need training forks if Rowdy was fully trained?

Ok, I'm not going to be mean, but that seems like a really silly thing to put in front of a jump. I have never, and I repeat, never have run over anything on my way to a jump other than a pole on the ground. The plastic mesh still has holes and what if a shoe got caught in it? You know he hooked it, then stepped on it and freaked out. I know that the plastic will break, but he probably can't even see it, it blends in, so it doesn't even really prove he's not spooky. A tarp would technically be safer and prove your point better, he could actually see it and then not spook. Why are you trying to prove he isn't spooky while you are schooling him over jumps? Spooking at the jumps and spooking at the suroundings are two completely different situations and don't neccesarily coincide. So if your trying to work on spooking on his suroundings please don't add jumps. If your trying to prove he isn't spooky, please don't add jumps. I was not trying to be viscious to you btw, I was just really concerned. Also if your in that tiny indoor, please don't add jumps, it's really to small to effectively train your horse in. The only time I have seen people jump in an arena that small, is at a show, in the tiny warmup ring, just schooling over a fence or two, becaue they are prepared for the class, but want to let their horse know he is about to go in and jump.

He doesnt have shoes. And the holes are way to small for his hooves to get stuck in.

K, you got me there ;)

All I can do at this point is shake my head and hope that for you, wisdom comes with age - and for Rowdy's sake that it comes sooner rather than later.

I don't think we are extra harsh on Morgan at all. I see a fourm of caring folks who want to help her and her horse and I don't see anyone being extra soft on anyone wanting a critique. Once in a while I do see some rudish posts when someone asks for guidance on something and some posters get a sort of superior attitude and makes rude comments about how uninformed the OP is etc. (not on the critique threads)

However when it comes to "critiques" I think most on this board are caring and trying to be helpful. It gets frustrating when a poster asks for advice, claims to get help then turns out they didn't.

Morgan says she is taking our advice and hopefully she is and she will make some more progress with Rowdy and keep working with the snaffle.
