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.
