- I owe you an apology. I have quoted you and referred to you and talked about your methods a number of times, and have referred to you as "he" and "him". I recall reading someone's post a while back that indicated you were a man using his wife's account to post. I finally decided to look at your profile. I am sorry for the error and will mend my ways immediately! I must say I pay strict attention to your posts. I have learned a lot reading them and putting your methods to the test. I am a novice trainer, even though I have been handling horses more almost 50 years. I prefer pack trips in western tack to any other kind of horse-related activity, and I prefer to train my own horses to do it. Your posts have certainly added to my horse sense. Thanks.
- I don't know why the website link would not work. Here it is again
I will check it and make sure it gets to our site. You never said where you live?
ps. Well that is strange. It worked when I clicked on it at the bottom of one of my posts but went nowhere when I clicked on it in this message. I guess you just need to type it into your browser.
- I would be delighted to ride with you some time. I did not know there were miles of trails there. I just rode on the one ( can't remember the name) where you go out, cross the water, up the long hill, ride around up there and then circle around to come back the same way. I tried to access your business website but perhaps I got a bad link.

- Pulling back on both reins and saying "Whoa!" will stop a really 'broke' horse but is not instantly effective on a green or very reactive horse. Taking ones head away from him instantly works on...Liked On: Yesterday, 09:19 PM
Posted On: 03-25-2011, 04:22 PMThis is a copy of an article I wrote explaining exactly how we teach a horse to give its head to a rider. It is NOT a 'light' read and will need to be read several times in order of get it right. ...Liked On: Yesterday, 09:09 PM

I must be getting really good at that because when I square my shoulders and step seriously into a horse's space, every one of them will back up a...Liked On: Yesterday, 05:48 PM
Posted On: 10-05-2012, 09:31 AMA Gaber liked post by Cherie On thread : Would 6 hours of riding one day get more done than riding 1 hour for 6 days?I have figured out that few people take green horses and 'un-finished' horses on the long rides that I take them on. I figured out many decades ago that a really long ride (like 5 or 6 or even more...Liked On: Yesterday, 02:54 AM
Posted On: 01-28-2013, 09:39 AMA Gaber liked post by Cherie On thread : Every rider IS a trainer -- every time you interact with a horseThere are two distinctly different ways of teaching horsemanship. I am afraid that most teachers / trainers teach equitation form -- not the fine art of handling and controlling a horse's mind and...Liked On: Yesterday, 12:49 AM

Posted On: 04-26-2011, 05:54 PMNo! The reason you do not need to do this with Mia is because she is a different kind of horse. She is reactive, sensitive, not lazy, has a good work ethic and has good forward impulsion. You, nor...Liked On: 12-26-2014, 06:46 PM

Posted On: 11-03-2014, 12:16 AMSorry trail rider. I was not trying to pick on you or anyone else. With your description of your horse and the trainer's evaluation of him, I think he has an inherently poor work ethic. He is...Liked On: 12-26-2014, 03:37 AM
Posted On: 11-02-2014, 11:43 AMI will add some of my observations on this subject; actually these are 2 separate subjects. I do not think a good work ethic and good (willing) forward impulsion are the same thing. They are...Liked On: 12-26-2014, 03:24 AM
Posted On: 11-01-2014, 10:43 PMThank you Wild Spot and Sahara and the others that actually understand and have ridden a good trail horse or a good ranch horse. A good well-trained saddle horse is not a 'dead-head'. I hate...Liked On: 12-25-2014, 05:57 PM
Posted On: 10-10-2011, 09:51 PMThis is how people process this. But, it is absolutely wrong as horses do not look at it this way. They do not keep going forward because they have to. They go forward because: 1) they trust...Liked On: 12-25-2014, 05:37 PM
