It looks like you have a friend helping you?



I do not tend to teach my horses tricks. I do not like teaching my horse anything that can lead to issues at other times in their life.

Um, yeah. Let's teach 'em to rear. That won't come back to bite you in the butt later. :roll:

I don't 'do' tricks with my horses. They're horses, not dogs.

what is the third one? Side pass?

I think I like the third on the best. The rearing I personally don't like as well because they can learn to use such behaviors to their advantage should they become unruley. Not saying your horse will, just stating my personal opinion. I think the step up is cute. The bow I will warn however, can cause issues for the farrier (depending on what your cues are).

As for "why do trainers" teach horses tricks, it's a gimmick, a great selling point (for their method).

I personally think your horse is cute and the tricks are neat, you just always want to be aware of issues that could occur so that you can avoid them.

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

I have to agree with the rearing trick. I bought a horse a couple of years ago that would rear on command. I ended up bringing him back because he started rearing any time he wanted.

It's nice to have a trained horse but be careful with which tricks you teach them.

BTW, there is nothing wrong with teaching a horse tricks.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

If someone doesn't want to teach their horse tricks that's fine, even understandable. But do I give a crap? Nope, and I bet you don't either, that's why you didn't ask. Rudeness ticks me off, especially when things can be said politely.

Anyways, I like the bowing the most I think! Do you have a video of her little side step thing?

A woman needs two animals - the horse of her dreams and a *male donkey* to pay for it.
