I go a tape on working the young horse. He and I work similar. We halter our babies so they know what it is, but use neck pressure as he does with a string or small leadline. Getting them to turn the hind quarter away is the trick to getting them to lead. It works so well. I think babies have less resentment for this method rather than fighting because their heads are being pressured. Once this is accomplished, it is much easier to use the halter. I trained a filly over a year old that had not been touch except briefly on the first day. She came along so quickly and leaded almost immediately. She is so unspoiled. I want to get more of his tapes. I wish they would have him on RFD. It is a change from some other techniques. One can only hope in time! They have just put on Julie Goodnight and a couple of others. Hope you can all catch some of these.

I like Julie Goodnight too. I think so many of the clinicians on RFD are getting too cowboy. It would be great to see Frank Bell, glad you like him :)

I agree with you on the cowboy thing. Tommy Garland had a great program on foaling. The second expecially was excellent with the vet talking about the placenta and worming the mare before 24 hours after foaling. Some very good points were brought out. Yes, Frank Bell would be a great asset to the channel. There is so much repatition in some of the shows. I like what Julie Goodnight teaches, but it seems there is so little to her show.Chis Cox has done some great things, like jumping with bull riders. He himself jump four feet or over. That was fun to stop or play in slow motion. Awesome work.
