    Thanks for making this great video...I can't wait to go and try a few of these things out in the round pen with my 2 year old filly. She used to take the halter but now she is starting to turn her rear to me and kick at me when I try to put the halter on...very frustrating especially when I have to cancel my farrier appointments because of this. Hopefully this approach will work for her and me otherwise I'm not sure what to do.

    Finally, one without a rope! I'm not worth a flip with a rope, and this could come in hand someday!

    This was the first day with this horse so he did all the moving himself. With your horse you may have to actually put pressure to make them move more. Remember to change directions a ton. I wouldn't go more than one full circle without changing directions. Also don't get hung up on your horse changing inward instead of into the fence. When they ask you to let them give and face up and you let them and give them a rest they will try to get back to that rest so they will begin to turn toward you again because they want that rest. I've had lots of horse start taking advantage of that and would face up but wouldn't allow me to do anything else. They would just leave when I tried to come in and introduce something. When they do this they are taking advantage of that resting spot. So what you do is take that away from them for a little while and make them keep moving and show them that they have to earn that resting spot.

    I grew up roping calves, so I'm pretty good with a rope. And I know roping a horse is way harder than roping a calf or steer because the angle you have to throw your loop. But when I see guys teaching to rope them and teach them to give to that before the halter I always wondered "do they think that everybody with a horse knows how to rope?"

    Hello,
    I really enjoyed your video's. I think your style speaks loudly as to how things can be done.
    The two horses in your vids are very good looking horses. Seems as though you got a good thing oging for yourself. I just took a peak at your website. Gotta run for now, so I saved it in my fav's for future purpose!
    Thanks again for the vid's.

    I really enjoyed this.... I have a 3 year old gelding coming tomorrow. Not halter broke at all. Halter was put on when he went to go be gelded then he was let back out in pasture. I have halter trained Mini horses, but this horse by no means is a mini. I really like this method, it seems to work. I will defiantly be using this or trying to take things from it.

    I usually go out there feeling like I have all day to mess with the horse. Just take some time and mess around and see where the horse will let me go and not go. Basically finding out what he is comfortable with and what he is not comfortable with. I just do what works and what works for the horse. I really have no "method". Because every horse is different and the same method may not always work on the a different horse you might have to tweak it in some spots.

    I had a guy a very known trainer where I live tell me this. "You know how people go out and buy all those Clinton Anderson CD's or Parille or some known trainer. And try them on there horse and it doesn't work. Then they whine and want there money back. You wanna know why the method didn't work? Because they didn't do it exactly as Clinton Anderson or who ever did it. Because it works for Clinton Anderson and whoever else. Just didn't work for them, because they didn't follow every step correctly."

    I am rambling. But I really like your methods of thinking and training. I will continue to watch thank you.

    I liked how you explained how pressure can actually create both a drive AND a draw. The ongoing explanation, with each movement (for example, calling out a time where he stopped for a very brief second and wanted to be with you) helps folks to start seeing those very small places where the hrose is trying. If you don't see them , you'll miss 'em and the horse will have less and less willingness to try again.

    Great job! And I look forward to watching more of them on your website.

    Well done!!!! Did the lameness turn out to be an abscess? Both are great looking horses. Your technique reminds me a lot of Chris Cox. You are a definitely talented horseman!!!!!!
