New Video: Re-starting a Troubled Horse (from horseback)

Hi guys,

Well my last few videos got a pretty good reception so I wanted to include one more for now. From here on out I'll upload new content weekly from our training camp in Half Moon Bay. The purpose of these videos is to show the kinds of things I'm doing to prepare myself and my horses to ride the length of California south-north next Spring as well as hopefully get to know some new people and new horses along the way. I hope to raise the funds for the trip by traveling around and working for whomever could benefit from my services. I don't want to turn this post into an ad so I'll just point toward my website at where you can find more specific info. (Moderators: I did include a link-back, hope ya don't mind me self-promoting a little bit )

In this video I worked with Jack from the back of Ginger. This is a horse that has come a long way in his confidence in people since I got him, but is still a little unsure about having a job. I'm pretty sure that his last job involved bucking people off so this is understandable. I decided to teach him to be a pack horse first as it's a lower-risk job than saddle horse. I do intend to ride him as well, but we have a year to train so we'll just take it slow.

Thanks for watching! -Ian
