    Hey Kevin,
    I was out on trail again this morning and my mare thought about dropping and rolling in the same spot again. I was able to kick her out of it so it didn't happen. Could there be a scent in that spot that she wants to roll in? There are several trails that I ride on that are seems to be just that one spot. Weird. Any ideas?

    ok I'll need some help with what this means...Do some two tracking and leg-yielding to get his mind back on you. I'm an intermediate rider. I started riding when I was 8 or 9 and rode into my 20's got married... yada yada.... and in the last year I've gotten back into it...I'm 50 now and I'm going at it in a different way. Ground work etc... I'm doing all that I can to learn the technique or riding, training... etc. Wimpy has had some formal training but when I got her she hadn't been riden in some time. I've got her past a few bad habits, but what do you do when they pick up other horses bad habits? I also thought about leading instead of following on trail. She has always followed, so that may cause different problems. I really appreciate your quick responses and your advice.

    Wow... fast response... thank you....When she layed down like that I wanted to scold her just like you said..... I was riding with a couple gals that are real deep into the Parelli method and so I didn't do what I was brought up doing. It caught me by surprise because we were coming around a wide corner where there was some nice deep sand and there she went... down to roll... I couldn't believe it. Now that I know what I know... I'll surely let her have it if it happens again.

    Hey Kevin, I happened upon this forum by a google search. I joined horse forum so that I could pic your brain. I have read a lot of your posts here and think you are great. I have an 11 yr old quarter horse mare. I've had her since Oct. I ride trail with her. She's a little spooky with deer, but I'm working on that. My problem is that when I ride with my girlfriend who owns an arabian that likes to crow hop and dance while coming down off the high trails back to the paddock, my horse picks up on her behavior. I got off at one point and made her move in circles, but that didn't seem to help. I also had an incident yesterday with my horse (Wimpy) just laying down to roll in the sand... luckily I wasn't hurt and was able to get off and out of the way. Do you have any ideas on this behavior and how to correct it?

    I live in Tremonton. Let me know what you need trained and I can probably help you out. I've been working for a cattle association in Idaho but I'm almost done with that.

    Shane Haviland is a very good horseman and trainer (not always the same thing). He is in Paradise Utah which is quite a ways from you but he would know someone closer to you. He is a fine man and very honest so you could trust his recommendation.

    Who do you think I should contact from the Utah Reined Cow Horse Association? I looked on their website but couldn't find any trainer contact. And I would like to know who is good and stuff, thanks!
