  1. New to Horses
    so as some may know from my previous post "in need of desperate help" I'm considering getting a parelli horse trainer to come teach me some basics about getting a good relationship with my horse. Now i know join up isn't parelli its monty roberts but i like the idea of it. i don't have access...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuVrIkhUrN8 I was watching my old videos and wow have we improved! This video is about 3 years old. Looking back now, I wasn't always behind the drive line, I definitely needed to be more firm and clear, and I probably should have gotten after her when she was...
  3. Horse Training
    I've just started leasing a new horse. On the advice of someone at the barn who has previously ridden the horse a few times I did join up with him on the first day of my lease trial (under her supervision and direction). Join-up took a while, and it would have been about 20-25 minutes of solid...
  4. Horse Training
    I am currently working with a 5 year old mustang who was captured out in Missouri a few years ago, he is a gelding but was gelded at a older age then typical. He will let people pet him now and feed him out of your hand if you are slow and patient, so he is some what used to people but he is...
  5. Horse Talk
    I have always been told that dogs sneeze when they are happy, my sweet old Smooth Collie Murphy sneezes three times. Jace, my Palomino has the heaves but never coughs any more, I give him a little "Cough Free" every day and it sure works, I would do a commercial for them! I am an avid reader of...
  6. Horse Training
    Hello everyone, I've been reading and watching a TON of articles and videos, reading Monty Roberts, etc etc and I really want to try "Join-up" with my stubborn draft X - there are a few problems so I want to know what you all think. There is no round pen where I board, only a large rectangular...

    I spent only a little over a half hour to get her to Join Up with me. Which is pretty freaking amazing :) She is a skitterish little thing. And at times she is a bull headed bucking bronc ask her last trainer who thought this little lady broke his back from one of the most vicious bucking...
  8. Horse Training
    I got my mare Blíð when I was 8 years old (I'm 19 now) but I didn't start riding her until I was 10. We had the perfect bond, she always behaved perfectly and I could go alone on trail rides. I had rode her for 6 years and then my parents decided to give her away... But now, about 2,5 years...

    So I was grooming this mare at my barn and when I finished I went over to her head and started to rub/massage it gently. She stayed still and seemed to greatly enjoy it. She then lowered her head a few inches, making it easier for me to rub her forehead, and then... she started to lick and chew...

    I just began leasing a 24-year-old gelding named Duke who may have a bit of Missouri Fox Trotter in him. He's pretty much bomb-proof and totally kid-safe. There is a round pen available at the barn. Should I try Join-Up with him? The barn manager has no problem with me doing round pen work...
