I have a new student coming out to work with me and the horses. His name is David. He has had some experience with horses, but most of what he know has to do with riding and not training.
In the photo above you can see David working with Mona. He is Long Lining her. I do this with all young horses before I ride them. This method teaches the horse how to turn right and left and, how to stop and back up. When the horse first experiences this method they can become nervous. Earlier, this horse started to buck. Why? She had never felt anyone pulling on the bit in her mouth. She thought by bucking she could get rid of it.
As you can see in the picture she settled into the program and did great.
If you would like to know more about Long Lining please contact me here or use the contact info on the home page.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
