Old-School Horse Training Approach

Hi everyone!! I know I'm new to the forum, but looking through here, all I see is natural horsemanship stuff. Not that I have anything against it, but I was wondering if anyone would enjoy a timeline on making a vaquero bridle horse. I have a two year old filly that we just run off the range with some other colts, every year I choose a two year old to start and make a bridle horse. Just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in watching some videos on ground training, problem solving, and bridle work. It's a lot different than natural horsemanship. Let me know and I'll start filming!! :)

I would personally be very interested!

I have nothing against NH either, but a lot of it just seems like 'fluffy' stuff to me, not really useful for anything and by no means the only way to do it. I'd love to see your methods!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Ok, not gonna lie some people find some things harsh, but people have been using these methods for hundreds of years. I get to filming!! Thanks for the interest!

Well that's enough interest for me! Thanks! I'll post a picture of the little mare that I'll be training.

Great idea - you never stop learning something new so I'd find it really interesting
Some NH is OK but when it starts to go into the rainbow and butterfly extremes & too much psychoanalysing every single thing they do I get nervous of it all because even though I love my horses to bits its still mostly a lot about pee, poo, sweat, freezing fingers and feet, mud, rain, broken fences and bloody hard work!!!

I'd be interested as well.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
