It looks like you have a friend helping you?



I do not tend to teach my horses tricks. I do not like teaching my horse anything that can lead to issues at other times in their life.

Um, yeah. Let's teach 'em to rear. That won't come back to bite you in the butt later. :roll:

I don't 'do' tricks with my horses. They're horses, not dogs.

ChloeButler09 07-19-2010 04:11 PM

its my sister, and ok well i ws asking which one was the nicest not that you dont iek teaching horses tricks,its just to form a bond.

ChloeButler09 07-19-2010 04:12 PM

if she did not enjoy it she would not do it, end of.

ChloeButler09 07-19-2010 04:13 PM

And why does pat parelli do it, and other trainers then?

farmpony84 07-19-2010 04:20 PM

what is the third one? Side pass?

I think I like the third on the best. The rearing I personally don't like as well because they can learn to use such behaviors to their advantage should they become unruley. Not saying your horse will, just stating my personal opinion. I think the step up is cute. The bow I will warn however, can cause issues for the farrier (depending on what your cues are).

As for "why do trainers" teach horses tricks, it's a gimmick, a great selling point (for their method).

I personally think your horse is cute and the tricks are neat, you just always want to be aware of issues that could occur so that you can avoid them.

yes ino that, if lolly rears not on command she gets a smack, and she knows not to, with the bow she only does with the word 'bow' and with your hand underneath her with a treat.Im carefull with teacher her!Thankyou for being pollite about it farmpony84.

I have to agree with the rearing trick. I bought a horse a couple of years ago that would rear on command. I ended up bringing him back because he started rearing any time he wanted.

It's nice to have a trained horse but be careful with which tricks you teach them.

BTW, there is nothing wrong with teaching a horse tricks.

If someone doesn't want to teach their horse tricks that's fine, even understandable. But do I give a crap? Nope, and I bet you don't either, that's why you didn't ask. Rudeness ticks me off, especially when things can be said politely.

Anyways, I like the bowing the most I think! Do you have a video of her little side step thing?
