True, but...

Asking you which horse you want to ride is actually a big deal and she obviously thinks things are going well between you and your mare.
you think so?

Saw her again today, worked on more of the same from yesterday. Dream, are you sure she will eventually start picking up her back feet? Again, her front feet were fine today but her back feet i had to spend quite a bit of tries bent over just tapping her leg. Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, and she finally picked up. That wasnt the exact number of times I had to tap (I actually had to tap more) but you get the point.

I didnt wallop her today even though Im sure if your guys horses refused to pick up their back feet when you ask, you would nip them in the bud am I right?

I changed things up today and instead of tying her inside the barn, I tied her to one of the BOs loose trailers parked outside. But she seemed a bit nervous and uncomfortable with that because there were a couple herds on the other side and she couldnt see around, so I untied her and tied her to one of the posts outside. She seemed fine with this.

I will say that she has become very good in standing quietly when I have food with me and knowing she wont get fed until she stands patiently! Shes a very smart mare and has caught on very fast. I even did something for the first time in like a month that I used to do with her everyday - I grazed her! Not very long, 15mins, she didnt seem overly crazy about the yellow grass (dont blame her). She ate some but then wanted to go back to her herd.

Im giving tomorrow and possible tues as well a break for her. Its suppose to snow 10cm tonight through tomorrow and 5cm on tues :(

Hoof pic, never tie your horse to a trailer that is not attached to vehicle, please.

How come? This is the first ive heard this. Other boarders have done it before in the summer. This is a huge 3 horse trailer.

Just curious thats all.

In the fall when we had our halloween party, all the horses who were getting dressed up were tied to this trailer. 3 or 4 horses tied at a time.

Guys, I am going to subscribe to Warwick Schillers videos, $24.95USD a month which is so much cheaper than Clint Andersons. I think both are great but Warwick is a fraction of the cost.

Ive watched almost all of Warwicks youtube videos and find he explains things so directly but easy to understand.

Thoughts?

Too late, already subscribed to Warwick haha, been spending the past 2 hours watching his videos. Ive learned a lot so far.

Im shocked he gets horses to stop on the lunge line by disengaging them at the hip and not getting them to woah by stepping into their shoulder. I know everyone is different.

By now you should stop being shocked by stuff, yes you know everyone is different, there is usually more than one way to do things..

I was taught to disengage at the hip? Look at the hip and ask them to move over. Just depends on who you talk to I suppose. I like Warwick but idk if I will keep my subscription.

I like Warwick Schiller- just be mindful that you do still have an actual trainer you are paying, and that trainer is still working with your horse.

My pony forgets his place sometimes and will try to charge ahead of me on the ground...well I don't like bully ponies so I make him work. I give him a smack with the end of the lead and make him back up and move his feet till I say stop and then I walk forward to keep him behind my shoulder as we walk, If I stop and he doesn't we do it again. If I stop and he does too, while not going past my shoulder I praise him. Also when on a lead I shouldn't have to give a command of backing up when I want it. I should only have to start backing up with little to no pressure on his halter and he should start backing up. Its basic knowledge a horse should have on the ground. IF he doesn't back up then I make him work to realize what I asked was the easy way out and he will respond correctly every time there after. Horses/Ponies will test you forever! They are like children and wish to test there boundaries :)

Also when you ask your horse to stop and give you attention, you will only know they are giving you attention by looking at them. If you look at a horse very relaxed and calm. The horse understands body language and facial expressions and knows you are no threat. Licking and chewing are good signs as well, its a horses way of saying I am submissive please accept me and don't bully me.
