Going back to the OP's first post (not sure where to post this) what is a float? I've heard it before by Aussies especially but living in America my whole life, I have no idea what it is. Lol. I first assumed it was water of some sort, like the shore/waves or something, now I'm thinking more along the lines of a horse trailer.

Sorry that was totally random, but I've been curious about it for awhile.

Depends on the horse.
And Tiny, my opinions are not based on age, I am very much in support of Marlea's journey.

You are one who doesnt, but there are plenty who do. I will take what a youngster says within the context of their age and experience. Don't we all have a bit different ears when listening to a very young person than a markedly older one?

I have some more exercises if anyone wants to know them.

Sure! I'm very curious about these excercises.

Can't remember if I have posted this before but get the lead and flip it over your horses ears, then back, then ver the ears the other way... also try making a 'skipping rope' by flinging it in circular motions infront of their nose

Marlea I think its cool that you've worked and trained with so many horses at the age of 13! All our horses are ranch horses and you don't really bond with them, i've only bonded and sort of trained with 3 horses! I think if your methoids are working for you they must do something so maybe someday i'll give them a try!

Have you ever trained a horse to do any tricks? I would love to train some tricks to our horse Tia... but she's blind would that make a difference?

Can I ask what happens if my horse totally flips at this? He hates things being flung in his face. ;_;

Tbstorm: thanks, its awesome to know im not being judged on my age and that people that are older are actually listening to my training techniques. I have taught marlea too smile and stand on a platform but I have never worked with a blind horse, give it a try though :) Red: take it slow, do some other things first to gain his trust

I love to see young girls working with horses! Some people may judge you because you don't have the experience but how else will you be able to gain that experience? Keep it up girly ;)
