join up advice needed please!


I'm based in the highlands of scotland where natural horsemanship hasnt really taken off and advice or info on doing anything like it is hard to come by.
I have a 2 year old welsh section b, Righ. We've had him since he was weaned and he has the most fabulous attitude and I truly believe he thinks he's one of us! Anyway, while he's still young I would like to begin some natural horsemanship with him, and have been looking into join up and wondering if this is the best place to start....
Any advice on this would be hugely appreciated. I have some books and internet info, but if anyone has first hand experience and can advise me the best way to start with him, I would be so grateful!

Do you have a round pen?

If you have a round pen or access to one then I recommend watching Anna Twinney on youtube. I learned a lot by watching that and used the method on my horse before I bought her, to see if we could get that communication, and connection. It worked for me, and she is mine! If you search Ann Twinney round pen on you tube it will come up. I think it is called Maui round pen, or something like that, and there are 10 parts. HTH!!
I have always wanted to go to Scotland! That is where you are right? I was born in England, then moved over sea when I was nine. A lot of my family are from Scotland, and I have always wanted to go back and trace my heritage.

I don't have a round pen, they are scarcely ever seen here in scotland, but I have an 'arena' (not sure if that's what you guys call it in america) with fences around 5'5", and i've seen youtube videos etc of people 'joining up' in similar arenas.
Luvsarabella, I will look up those videos, thank you, and yes, i'm in scotland, on the north west coast. Where are your family from? You should definitely come over, it's worth the visit!!

An arena will work as well, especially if you can put a gate or piece of fence in the corners to round it off, that way your horse won't get 'stuck' in the corner and would help keep moving. The round pen work is long to explain so I'll send you the link to Jay O'Jay and I like the way he does the round pen work and join up. Then with Anne Twinney you'll have oodles of 'go to' info.

Poppins- not sure exactly where they are all from, most moved down south to England, and are gone now. I would just love to see where I came from. Plus I know that it is gorgeous there too! One day I will take my hubby to GB ....
