A great video on subtle body cues

I've been following these videos for awhile and really enjoy his quiet approach. In this video from 29 July he demonstrates ways to recognize and alleviate tension in a horse. Enjoy!

She needs some bug spray and he'd have a lot more of her mind.

Can't work with tension in the body? I sure have spent most of my life doing the impossible. I was setting railroad ties in the ground yesterday. Had so much 'tension' that I was taking aspirin like candy afterward.

And I don't care how much tension a horse has...no kicking out at me. Or I'll give them more tension that they can handle!

From the perspective of 'natural horsemanship', my mare doesn't give a rat's rear about tension in her 'herd' of 3. They'll do what she wants, when she wants it.

Ummm...yes, yes I can see it...but you have been ignoring it the whole first 7 minutes of that video, that horse is wanting to take a bite out of you. You're pissing her off to no end. To heck with the "tension", get on and ride her and quit boring her out of her mind! lol

He sure does like to talk though, and he has some interesting ideas.

To each their own, I guess.

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

I found it interesting to watch. You always pick up some tidbits here and there!
Lots of drool on this horse, though! What is that about?

Tension my a$$. That horse is just resistent to pressure. Once she learns to move off pressure properly all that will go away. It is not at all unusual for a horse who has not be properly taught to back up straight they are not going to just do it regardless of anything more going on with them.

People seem to like to try and put words into a horses mouth. Got to love it.

Most likely clover.

As in, eating clover? I thought clover wasn't good for a horse. My gelding seems to love it and I'm always trying to pull him away from it.

It will not hurt them but once it has been cut the first time of the year or eatten down and grows back up and they eat it again it makes them drool. It is not bad just makes a mess and can be nasty but past that let them have at it.
