What has your horse trained you to do?
 
Do you run at feeding time to keep him from breaking something? This is a fun thread to get us to laugh at ourselves.

My gelding will pick up a brush and drop it on my feet if there's one within is reach. His way of saying "Brush me". He has also trained me to give him the biggest pasture to himself, feed him first, groom him first, ride him first....he's just a tad spoiled.

My gelding has taught me that I should always remember to close the barnyard gate, especially if I'm not going to be home at his dinner time! He finds the most intersting ways to break out of his pen and will go gallivanting! But I love him

Henny's trained me with cues LOL. I know I'm brushing the right spot when he's yawning or lipping the air. I know he appreciates his sheath being cleaned when he bites the wall. :lol: He's also taught me he is the sweetest little man and will do anything to please me. :)

He's taught me how to tie more knots than a boy scout, he can untie just about all of them though! :lol:

gypsy has taught be to be humble. to always ask nicely, to feed her a treat that the end of our ride, and to hold on tight.

My Fancy has taught me to be very careful when I'm taking her halter off because when it's not on her she runs away to eat the remnants of hay left in the aisle lol

Annie has taught me to keep my knees loose when we stop after a pattern. her hop-stops+ stiff legs= BIG KNEE BRUISES.

Alahna has already trained me to pop a treat in her mouth when she pricks her ears and "grooms" my arm/leg/stomach with her top lip, lol. She's so gentle that I can't bring myself to push her away, because she's careful not to bite or nip. She's got her teeth around my arm (barely touching), opened her mouth back up and licked my arm to "make it better", lol.

In all seriousness...my gelding (the same one mentioned above) has taught me everything I know about training. He was a rescue of sorts and had more issues than readers digest. He taught me about being fair and patient but also firm and confident. He has given me more than I could ever give him and I am forever in his debt.
