ground working materials

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.
