Got to use my training skills today

Whether it be from cold weather or my horse being a little sore from a hard workout, for the first time ever, when I went to his pasture to get him, he did not want to be caught. For once I had all day, so decided to try something I saw on one of many NH training shows. I let him have his space but stayed in front of his drive line (shoulders) and forced him to reverse direction every time he tried to run off. Despite being in a very large paddock, it was extremely effective. After only about 5 minutes, he just stopped, turned in and faced me, and I walked right up and put on his halter. No $1000 club fees, no orange training sticks, just a stubborn chick and a smart TB. Gotta love it!

That's awesome! CONGRATS!! I think that is Clinton Anderson isn't it?

Great job :)

It probably was a Clinton thing. I couldn't ride last winter due to a frozen ring, so we dabbled a little in NH training, getting him to move his shoulders and butt with just body language from me. Guess it paid off. I can't imagine chasing an OTTB around a 1 acre pasture on a daily basis!

I think that is awesome! The fact that you accomplished that very well! My Hubby really got into NH and Clinton a few years back with his horse Zeus. Zeus was a very hard to catch boy, and he worked with him in the round pen alot over the winter just like you did last winter.

Because of his interest, that's what got me interested in NH and now I apply that with Nelson.

He and his horse came a long way! I have video's of the two, but I wont post them because I don't want to take away from your thread.
