    Thanks for the Parelli article, Spirithorse! I definitely need all the help I can get!


    Believe me, I have expressed my concerns to her numerous times. Unfortunately, we tend to disagree a lot when it comes to the training of our animals in general (horses, dogs, cats), because she tends to be more lenient, while I want to be assertive (not mean at all!) and consistent. I will keep trying to talk with her though, and hopefully we can work something out.

    Thanks for the advice. Maybe what I could do would be to let them eat for a few minutes before we go out, so that I'm sure they aren't as hungry. These horses do have pretty consistent access to grass though, so it's not like they'd be really hungry, like a horse who gets fed once a day might be. There are so many methods to consider, I'm glad I've got another couple of days before I really have to deal with this!

    What will probably happen is the horse will listen to you when you are with him. He won't listen to your mom. Horses will learn which people they can take advantage of and which ones they can't. Dogs and cats are the same way. When I'm on the trail, which ever horse I'm on will not stop to eat. The same horse with another rider may try to eat constantly.

    As soon as you feel their head lower a tiny bit immediatly squeeze your legs together and say "WALK" or if you are trotting then "TROT" haha
    A lot of the time if a horse is concentrating on something else, food won't be the ONLY thing on their mind.
    So try to keep your horse collected at all times, this will help the grass problem because 1.] you have COMPLETE control of their heads, and 2.] they'll be concentrating on working a bit more then they are eating. Haha

    Good luck!
