Thank you Cherie!
Six years ago I used to ride six days a week and after lessons (unlike the other student who just came out to play, ride and decorate their horses) I would spend time with my teacher looking at horse injuries and lunging horses. I didn't want to only ride, I wanted to learn about horse management and training.
I'm now visiting a ranch where twenty horses are out on a pasture behind a house and barn. A lot of endless land. The man that lives there is very knowledgable and teaches a lot about how you need to catch every bad behavior that the horses would do. He always makes sure to point out stuff that we think is "cute" that is a horse showing us bad manners! Some of the horses like my favorite names Houdini have awful manners but we're learning the three second correction rule.
I'm hoping to get the opportunity to train Houdini (I knew him when he was an itty bitty foal). He is very much a people lover since John (owner of the ranch) did imprinting.
For now, till I get his permission, I will read and read the stickies on the forum as well as work with a trainer.
