    Well I tried this out with Fancy today, with mixed success, but I may have cured my problem by watching the video again.

    Got her moving into place nicely, but she was swinging away when asking her to walk up into place. I see that I should of been suggesting, forward movement, Oh well that will be tomorrow.

    I was very pleased with her overall, when she did line up spot on, I just decided to make much of her, and not ride, sometimes you have to just stop at a good point

    Cool! Mac still swings out sometimes, too. He just didnt' do it for the video. You can always tap her off side lightly with a stick or whip and train her to siddle over to the block. I did that with Mac originally, took like an hour. Now I just circle my hand and say, "over" and he siddles over. He is a winner!

    Glad to hear you are getting something out of the vid.
    What happened to your shoulder? Says in your signature that you hurt it.

    Currently I have pretty much all "ouwies" in remition and am feeling pretty good (knock on wood!)

    Definitely a really useful vid, it's so simple and effective.

    The shoulder, mah, I have a trapped nerve, when I went for the x-rays to see what is going on the arthritis in that shoulder is rapidly getting worse,

    So the good news is the real OOOW pain is easing off now, and I'm getting proper feeling back in my fingers, which is fantastic, the bad news is this maybe as good as it gets

    Oh well it's better than the alternative, I'm going to look into accupuncture and see if that helps.

    Hey if any of you would like more on the subject, the book Curbside Service, Change the Way You and Your Horse Think About Each Other, is available on Amazon and there's a short 5 minute video on my website ExceptionalHorsemanship.com

    I have subscribed, ms Woodard.

    My llittle video is not so much to train the horse how to come up to the block, as that would take more foundation, but to help you get a horse lined up to the block who already knows what he should do, but maybe is playing a little bit of a game, and is in a bridle.

    I see a lot of people who try to position the block to the horse, or get off the block and try to bring the horse back. This is just one way to do this without the person moving around so much.
    If the horse really wont' line up to a mounting block or fence or whatever, then real training is lacking and this little video wont' fill in the hole.

    I think you did a great job in the video. Like you, I see a lot of that positioning too, and I love the chuckle I get after someone gets the horse "positioned" and walks around to the block and the horse moves. And on it goes.
    If the horse has some training a lot of them will do what your video shows pretty well. Sometimes it's enlightening, not to mention entertaining, to see just how smart our horses are.
