Me and my horse having a bad day lol
View my" Bad day horseriding" vid on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJItMYW31ug(its me and my RL horse)view & comment
just a tip, when she was rearing in the paddock, you kicked her, but was still blocking with your reins. where else does she have to go?
What I saw was that you were trying to get her to collect and she was rearing in defiance. Have you used side reins on her while lunging? That wouls maybe get her more accepting of collection, as she is only fighting herself. I'd also leave her tied by herself more often. It'd maybe help her impatience.
You need to get out of her face if you don't want her to rear and fall over backwards on you.
First off, you are pulling incredibly too much on that horse's head. If your horse is pulling at the bit that you need to hold her back that much then you should either change bits or occupations, as in what you and horse horse show. Secondly, you shouldn't kick your horse and pull back, it is fairly confusing to them and it can result in things like rearing, such as your horse did. Thirdly, don't pull on your horse when it is rearing, it can make them lose their balance and topple on top of you. Fourth, in the beginning of your video, you were riding one handed, just thought I would point out that you are riding english and english is two handed. And fifth, not to be rude at all but your horses headset wasn't so great. Now I of course don't know what you teach your horse and whether or not you work on headsets so I just want you to know I'm not trying to be mean, rude, or whatever, I'm speaking my mind. But most of your "bad riding day" was all because of mistakes you made and it wouldn't hurt to fix them.
When riding and the horse rears, I push them forward. The can't really rear if they are moving much.
And for the rearing on the ground. DO NOT pull on your horse's head. If they want to go back start to push them back until they change their minds.... :?
Edited for spelling.
Heh, when my horse has a bad day his face gets tied to his butt, and I give him time to reflect.
nice tim lol
Re: Me and my horse having a bad day lol
I think you were sending mixed signals to your horse and at times, it looks as if you were purposefully pulling, yanking & kicking to make the horse rear. Then in the rear, you were pulling on its head. Do you realize how dangerous that is for you AND your horse???
I knew someone who did things like that and the horse toppled over on her, breaking her hip and the horse broke its leg.
I sincerely hope you would start working with your horse on some Ground Work to get him/her more under control, learn to collect, be soft and supple and responsive. You will get more out of your riding if you worked on some ground work for respect.
I also think you need to improve on your riding ability before you jump. It all looks like one great big disaster to me.
When my horse would rear, I'd pull a rein to the side to get her to come back down. I saw it in this video. Just as an FYI, I wasn't really thinking when my horse was rearing, i just sort of did it and it worked. And it wasn't a full blown rear, it was just like a couple feet off the ground.
This is the video in case anyone wanted to view it
