VIDEO: Trailer for upcoming (free) Colt Starting/Horsemanship DVD :]

What is good horse people!

With the mud and rain and Christmas coming up, riding is effectively on hiatus. For want of something to do I started going through all the footage we've shot this year and by sheer luck, the camera was there at times to catch some pivotal moments where important lessons were learned! So I've decided to make a DVD out of it. The whole thing is going to be free on youtube, of course.

Previous videos have been removed for now, so that I can re-edit a lot of stuff. No sense denying that putting a bunch of raw footage up as a finished product was kinda lazy, so it's time to get a little more organized. You guys who sat through some of those long segments, my hat's off to ya. The next thing that comes out will definitely be new and improved.


DVD Segments (in no particular order yet)

Rider Confidence: How I re-learned to walk, and then ride again after a life-altering motorcycle accident. Overcoming fears, re-discovering your physical confidence, and a few outside-the-box training techniques to develop balance, coordination, and a more confident mindset for riding.

The Anatomy of a Wreck: A detailed break-down of why I got bucked off my colt, and the infinitely valuable lessons learned from that experience. I intend to UN-ashamedly point out where I missed some key indicators of IMPENDING DOOM, so that you may all be spared my UN-fortunate fate!

Off-The-Ropes: A term sometimes used out west, it means to take a horse out of a ranch's cavvy and go do a job on him (in this case her) without the luxury of time. For her first ride of this past season, I took my mare out of the pasture and just threw my saddle on and used her to gather loose horses. She was distracted, just wanted to run off with the others, and nearly took me off at the gate. Some tips on how you might survive a similar experience, should your horse ever act a fool out on the trail.

Colt Starting: I use this as a general term to mean any un-broke or green-broke horse no matter the age. I'll show you how I started this 8-year old, un-broke, slightly spoiled pasture puff and got him on the road to becoming useful.

How To Make Your Horse Better Than Average: Some ways to work with your horses which will get people saying "Wow, you have a really nice/well-behaved horse!". Of course, they'll just think that it's the horse. You won't get any credit for it, but that's okay. You'll know the truth. ;]

That's about all I can think of for now! Going to be poring over footage for about the next month, sequestered on these rainy days in the familiar and welcome dryness of Cameron's Pub. If anyone has any requests or ideas for anything, I'm interested! -Ian

Nope, she's still here! I never did actually offer her for sale yet. Always thinking that she could be even better. I tend to go way too long with those kinds of thoughts. XD Why, you interested?

LOL..always looking :)
I would be very serious if our winter situation would not of changed last minute. We were supposed to go to lease ground with some cows for the winter. Within three days of leaving TX it went down the tubes and I had to find a place to rent for us, four horses, dogs and big enough to get the big truck and cow pot into....
So the need for some additional horses is no longer.

Very nice idea doing the vids to help others out!
Two years ago a good friend of mine trained here at our place over 40 horses through March-Oct. I took alot of video and I made up DVDs to give to the ones who had their horses trained here.

Looking forward to it, Ian. I love the way you work with horses.

As I said, if I needed a horse (I need another one like a hole in the head... really) and weren't now on the other side of the Atlantic, I'd take that draft cross mare you had in the "for sale" section off you in a heartbeat!

You will have explanation of what you are doing rather then music, right? I am sorry that I chuckled just the tiniest bit when you fell. I swear it was prefaced by a "oh, hope he is alright" but when I saw you get up there was just a hint of a chuckle. Been there done that kind of thing. Great job with the video.

Oh thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed my pain! But yeah, I promise to talk on this one. I'll talk all about how I ended up falling and amuse you some more. If I don't DIE OF EMBARRASSMENT first!
