Wink Wanted to share: natural ridings saved my horse

I wanted to share my experience of natural riding and horsemanship because this actually saved my horse in some kind of way.

I got a horse last winter that had been in training and was suppost to be a stallion. the trainer who tamed him didn't like the way he acted around and when he was going for riding the horse sometimes just took it's turn out to nowhere. that trainer owned a part in the horse but he gave it away to us. (my family)

Now I began to ride him. he had those things on his mind, turning, and disagreed with everything I did. then I tried to teach him with a neckring.

That neckring made my life, folks, with that neckring, he started to understand me and this way you can talk to your horse in a very understandable way. you can punish him for what he does wrong without hurting him or doing any kind of pain to him. It's wonderful. I started 4 days ago teaching my horse things with a neckring. I haven't gone for a ride for a long time on him but he has never wanted to be leaded in any kind of way, for the first time he did it 2 days ago. it took few minits to understand me and I wish this is going the right way from now on.

I was thinking of putting him down. I had tried every single thing that came up to my mind, I talked to alot of trainers and teachers, nothing seemed to help him. When I tried this last thing I could think of, I think I getting my horse back

hope that this topic got you an idea of how awesome this riding is, the lifestyle of riding, and I hope that you will find a new way to understand your horse, painless and fearless. :)

Ps: I use bridle in my ridings, there will be no change there. but using the neckring while riding is good to keep your horse listening and knowing what you want, without using the bridle so much. Olso I can say that I used the bridle like too much and not the way I use it now.

I would olso be interested to hear your story of natural riding :)

If they don't have horses in haven, I'm not going.

That's wonderful that you were able to turn your horse around. Congratulations. Though I am curious. I have never heard of a neck ring, can you explain to me what it is?

Congrats. It is nice that you can get him working for you.

I think a neck ring is like a neck rope? A loop around the neck to guide the horse??
