Trick Training! Woohoo!

Alright, so i was looking online (youtube) on horsemanship. And there was a video that kinda caught my eye. The video was horse trick training, lol who knew right?.... anyway once i saw that video i thought that, that would be a great use to me and my horses. And that girl who did that video has her website on how to do trick training, and there is many different levels. and right now i'm on level two and level two is when you start doing the training on your horse. I'm so excited! this looks like alot of fun!!!! Can't wait!! So this weekend coming up i'm gunna go look for a rope halter for my miniature pony :)

I've been trying to teach my horse how to bow but he's so hard headed lol. You can teach them how to rear, but you wanna be careful on how you teach them that and who will be riding yoir horse etc, you can teach them to lay down, lift a leg when you tell them, etc. Good luck :)

I've started teaching my Ottb to lift his foot on command and extend it - in hopes that one day we will be able to do the Spanish Walk - but right now he just knows how to bow.

Hoping to teach him laying down some day .

Jake knows quite a few. The fun ones are definitely Shake no, nod yes, count (with pawing the ground), spanish walk, kick a ball and bow (with both legs forward or down on one knee).

Though he also knows the two that can cause problems, the lay down and the rear. He can do everything from the ground or under saddle.

I've been trying to work on him picking things up but the farthest I have gotten is him biting whatever I'm pointing at. We are also working on hug. I'm having a hard time thinking of anything else....I refuse to teach kiss, which I consider to be a horrible trick (No teeth near my face unless if I am the one giving the kisses)


Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.

Hmm Lifting the front legs high and walking...My boy is not athletic as this guy and doesn't try as hard, but he does it well enough for me.


Well Its more of a cheap trick but I taught him to paw by tying a rope to his pastern, poking him in the lower shoulder (his cue) lifting it up, treat....after about 20 tries he started doing it on his own. Then I would teach him to stop as soon as I removed the pressure, so lets say I could say 2+1=? then poke him till he pawed three times then stop...its all for show and the little kids love it. They also love asking him yes/no questions. The trick is to make the cues subtle enough. ;)

I eventually was going to start some trick tutorials...maybe I'll get started on that.
