I've seen some horses trained using what the owners called 'Western Horsemanship' and I was wondering if anyone could give me any links to sites or give me tips about using western horsemanship on my horse? Cause I taught her to do bridless when I was 12 but I think I did it wrong and I'd like to do it the right way and also teach her some new stuff.
Also! This doesn't really have anything to do with this... well sorta... but I also taught her how to lie down and I can get on her and she gets up. I'll get pics of it. I thought it was cool. Lol.
Things she knows (undersaddle):
Disengaging her hindquarters (thats how I turned her, and now I know that's not exactly right)
Lying down on command
Bridless work (has done jump courses and dressage tests bridless)
She will stop on a dime if I tell her to, but not as well without a bridle, she kind of takes a few steps then stops.
Things I'd like to teach her:
How to lunge her in a circle around me without a lunge line
How to spin (like they do in reining)
To follow me (like on Sydney Long's 'horse tricks on a beach' thing)
To ground tie
To back up while I pull her tail
I'd also like her to get REALLY good bridless.. and if theres anything you'd like to add to my little list, please do! And any 'how to' websites are much appreciated!
I also realize that this all sounds like regular horsemanship, too. So... yea.
**Also! I have dial-up so youtube doesn't really work for me, plus I have no speakers so no vids unless there isnt any NEEDED commentary and the video isnt rediculously long, k? Lol
