Years ago a girl used to ride my mft with a tie down I had no clue why,
I havent ever done it so one day I decided to and it seemed like my horse was working against it witch in return just made my ride harder... this horse doesnt listen to that girl any more. Although he listens to me just fine.
So that comes to my question of my barrel horse splash. I ride him with a very very loose tie down on, he's an arab so his head is high but the past year I have steped back took pride off my wall of knowlege and actualy started learning a lot more. Taking him and re training him to be a horse that wants to please me. I used to think it was cool to ride a unbroke horse just because no one else could... stupid I know but I was a kid, Thinking about that horse (mtf) and all the retraining done to my anglo arabion, and working him yesterday around barrels he wouldnt bend like normal. Once again I felt like he was working against the tie down to please me.
I viewed the videos there not bad, good works for a windy day but I still feel he's working against that tie.
I have came to realize people around here don't know a dime about horses,
they told me bell boots all four... no only the fronts..
High head on a horse? Tie down no.. training.
Break a horse? No train him
Training a horse COWBOY him!!!! Heck no.
