Thumbs up Curing the Pushy Horse


Natural horsemanship trainer, Gord Searle, just posted a fantastic video on curing the pushy horse. It quite long - about 60 minutes - but it's worth every minute. Amazing what he does with a horse that doesn't respect personal space. A must see for anyone that has a horse that needs a manners upgrade.

Some folks may have experience with Gord's techniques, but I have to say that this was new to me and I was amazed at how well it works! It's very detailed and gives you each step systematically.

Hope you enjoy it.

Pushy horses are not hard to handle or fix. When dealing with a pushy horse - carry a whip. If he steps in your space, WHACK. Problem solved. They learn quickly.

This guy is an idiot too. Great way to get a high headed horse that will decide humans are all idiots.

Same thing as if I needed to get you to move in aisle, do you want me slapping you, or nicely indicating I need to get by.l

Wonder how many will fall for this one?

Your attitude is what "fixes" a pushy horse. Which more than likely the human has taught to behave this way.

And whoever had the idea of jiggling/wiggling/hitting a horse in the head area to get them to back up, had that rope tied around their neck, with other end lashed to tree limb, so I could kick the chair out from under them.
