    Question Did anyone ever try to make a join - up?

    I'm just curious, if anyone ever did that with her/his horse and how did it work?

    If you're referring to the Monty Roberts technique... I have. Its a useful tool for the respect and attention of your horse. There are many forms of it. Like Clinton Anderson's "lunging for respect". Done correctly in the right situations, it's a useful exercise!

    I think it's kind of amazing how a horse reacts.
    I mean they really trust you than. (:

    I'm really a big fan of Monty Roberts style join up. The dialogue between me and my horse astounds me! :)

    Joining up is a fantastic method to bond with your horse, I love it =] if you want to know how to do it shoot me a PM and I'll send you a sheet I wrote on joining up with your horse.

    I know how to do a join up, but I just wanted to know if someone else tried this out. (:
    But if you wanna send me your join up method I'd be really happy. Cause maybe you do it kinda different. So I could try it that way too. (:

    Yes; not so much with my own, because they were already puppy-broke when I got them, but I have with a friend's horse who was a monster when she got her. It worked amazingly. :)

    I LOOVVEEE JOIN UP!!! We do it a bit different then monty, we don't use the round pen we do it in the ring. We send the horse away, and chase them, well not really just walk after them, matching thier pace and directition, turning when they turn picking up the pace when they do etc. then when they slow and stop and look at you, you back off. Then when you have thier full attention you walk slowly, eyes down in a zig zag pattern to them(if they run you do it again) if they don't you scratch thier head or shoulder and turn ad walk away... then if you did it right they follow its very cool, but i've done it so much with sable he just does it automaticly!

    Wouldn't start a horse without first joining up. Do it just like Monty Roberts. Don't add or take anything away.
    Especially, learn how to use, and not use, eye contact. Very, very important.
