Flip That Horse!

Has anyone else seen this? This lady has a "show" on youtube called "Flip That Horse" where she rescues a horse, rehabilitates it, trains it, and then sells it to a good home using natural horsemanship. I love the idea!

Wow, what a fun idea for a show. I have thought about doing this sort of thing once I have my own property and get a little bit more experience training horses. I would love to be able to take in rescue horses, fix them up, train them, and find them good homes.

Thanks for sharing, Lucara, I will have fun watching these videos.

This is a fantastic series!!!!!!! I've watched 1-3 and can't complain about anything she's done thus far! Thanks for sharing this and as time allows I'm sure I'll come back and watch the rest!!!

Nice to see someone using nice methods but I don't agree with allot of the stuff.. like riding a 2 year old..

I think what she is doing is great. There are already too many unwanted horses out there and if she can find some of them good homes then I am very happy for her. Although, that video of her first ride is the prime example of why I don't like to start a young horse in anything other than a western saddle. I think if she had had a saddle horn, she could have stayed on. But maybe that is just me.

Yeah, it may have been a good idea for her to use a western saddle. But I think she was just trying to advocate the use of treeless saddles. They are very comfortable both for the horse and rider.

I agree a normal western saddle probably would have been better for an unbroke horse. I like it when my saddle stays where It's supposed to no matter what. Also I think that there are a few things she could have done a little different. Like flexing the horse more and moving that horses feet aroung a little more(on the ground). All the desensatizing in the world isn't going to make up for a lack of sensetizing and flexing. I like them quiet sure but I also like them responsive. Her main mistake was leaving the reins so loose when she mounted big no no in my book. But I think she is on the right track and has a good idea with hepling rescue horses and all. I also think she did really good just needs to do a little more sensatizing and flexing.

That is really cool! Thanks for sharing. I'll definitely watch some more of her vidoes when I get some more time!
