    WS Arabians is absolutely right! No two horses are alike or can be trained alike. The key is when working with your horse be repetitive and patient. That's how they learn-repetition. One thing that will help: Always make sure you are the herd leader (in your case you have a herd of 2) They learn a bunch from their herdmates. Maybe read up on horse psychology. I've learned a lot just by watching my horses as a herd.

    Here is a way to try out some of his methods:

    This site gives a small description to the 7 games.
    These really help horses learn all kinds of things that they will later need when you are riding them.

    If you decide that you like his methods, I would recommend buying his DVDs and books, some of them get pricey, so you could look for them second hand, but they're all worth watching!!

    Good luck!

    I love the Clinton Anderson DVD's. I bought the handy stick a little pricy $40 but I love it too. They are really good. He shows the exercises on both a nervious sensitive horse and a more pushy lazy horse. Then at the end of the exercises he goes over the most common handler mistakes. And what if the horse does this do this. I have watched them over and over and over again. I definitely recomend. I think Stacy Westfall might be good to I have never seen them though.

    The videos are expensive but I think they are worth it. I would rather fix problems myself then have to send the horse to a trainer for 3 months with a big price tag.

    Sometimes you can find the videos on ebay.
