Oh my gosh!! I rode him today and got some good video. I started with leg pressure and verbal/cluck, and when that didn't work I used the end of my lead (ended up reverting to the crop) and he picked it up so fast! There were times when he was stubborn and it took longer for him to move, but he picked it up after a while. I was so proud! I do have to work on being a bit lighter in my hands though as not to confuse him.

I would love to see that video. I am so glad that you are making progress. :) Keep us updated.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Hey, we all look like goofs sometimes. The one video I have of John, I nearly fell off because I was riding bareback and my feet were sticking out away from his sides because I still had my spurs on. Talk about looking like a goofball. LOL

sadly I cannot figure out how to get the video on. Not only that, but my memory card is corrupted so I can't put anything up with that. I'm going to try a new memory card and get a video up hopefully. I'm really excited!

oh yes :) I love him so much and he's doing so good! We've been riding for a week now and he's already getting the walk and turns. He's got a very soft mouth. EEEEEK I'm so stoked!

I have 2 to get going on again as soon as the weather starts getting better. All I have is a outdoor grass ring (and live in Upstate NY). Its a little difficult to get much done at this time of year

My Appy is going to be 4 this spring, all we have done to date is walk/Trot work. Time to get serious with her. I have actually thought about sending her out for 30 days, I don't ride enough in the winter to maintain good balance and if she does something goofy I get paranoid about falling off.

I have to get Molly going to (Morgan/Percheron cross). She coming 3 yrs old. She's had the saddle on (without being girthed) , she bucked like a rodeo horse when I put the training sercingle (SP?) on her and it wasn't even tight. The good thing about Molly is once the initial "fuss" is over, she ususally settles down for the next time.

hey good luck with that hayburner! Ya I can understand how that would be hard in the winter. I'm lucky enough to have a decent arena. It sure is fun though to start them :)
