    lost heritage

    Hi everyone~ So My great grandfather used to teach horses to do tricks, for fairs, circuses and such. He owned a riding stable as well when my father was a kid. Sadly my dads parents divorced when he was young and my grandmother would not let him learn to help train trick horses. So as you can see this has become a lost heritage which I would like to learn more about. How do I train my horse to do simple tricks? Which are the simplest tricks to teach them without having an actual trainer there? I train all my own horses but for ranch work. Anyone have any ideas?

    IF you enjoy Clinton Anderson's training methods, he has just put out a DVD in his series that instructs how to train simple tricks. I think the one I like the best is when the horse lowers his head down, let's you lie across the neck, then propels you to his back. They also teach bowing, laying down, and sitting (very much like a dog.) I would avoid tricks that could get your horse into trouble, like undoing knots and halters--WAIT A MINUTE--that's what my QH Buster does to his BFF "Sweet Cuppin' Cakes" (the big head in my Avatar)!!!!
    Seriously, you could look into Jesse Beery, who trained in the early 20th century:

    I guess if it's genetic then you destined to be a GREAT trainer!

    Haha yeah one of my mares is a little hudini, she likes to untie herself or get out of her pen to be with the others.
