    Whatever "catch phrases" I might have used are true. Plain and simple. Really I don't see why you are on my case about it?......

    I just went back and read each of my posts on this topic and I see no "catch phrases."

    Sigh, you can't make any comment about Parelli that isn't 'OMG I love it!'

    Honey I'm not on your case about it. I'm just letting you know that when you preach Parelli and people go, 'Flapping the fender has nothing to do with mounting!!! Duh!' That is why. Just trying to help you come across better to readers who do not do Parelli, that is all. ;)

    There are some really good tips here, thanks! I will have to try them out on my young horse, Bailee!

    My horse is trained to walk up to the mounting block, line up and stand quietly until I say walk all through by clicker training. Check out this video to see how. It's a great lesson and skill for them to have in case you have a tall horse and get tossed on the trail!

    Here's the "mounting a horse" video I made last week: YouTube - Mounting a horse.m4v

    <object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/bvwwHatRCNk?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/bvwwHatRCNk?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

    So, all that's left is swinging your leg over, which I skipped here becasue I'm recovering from a concussion--(not horse related).

    First... teach the horse to come to you when you stand up on something (a mounting block, a log, a big rock, a fence, etc). When he walks to you, click when you see his intention, then give a treat.

    Move the block and see if he comes to you again. Then gradually withhold the click for position. Take it in small steps and eventually you will have a horse who comes to where you need him to be and stands quietly for mounting!

    Email me for details if you want to know the steps to teach this. It only takes about an hour!
