Your Horse Can be Your Friend

Your Horse Can be Your Friend
NEW BLOG! When you work with your horse, you have two options. You can be nice to your horse and treat him as your friend. Or you can treat him as your enemy and think that he must submit and “respect” you at all times. Yes, your horse can be your friend. He can learn to enjoy your company and enjoy being with you. Being nice to your horse doesn’t mean that he’s allowed to do whatever he pleases. In fact, your horse can only relax with you when he understands your ru...

You Must Concentrate on Your Horse
NEW BLOG! My mother has a small companion dog named Lilly. When mum takes her for a walk, Lilly decides where they go and how fast they go. Mum allows Lilly to stop and sniff under shrubs, walk across the driveway to talk to a neighbour and generally walk wherever and however the little dog chooses. Mum enjoys these walks and so does Lilly. They wander along and mum doesn’t have to think too much about what’s going on. She doesn’t have to think about where they’re goin...

Horses and Man's Best Friend

Horses and Man's Best Friend
NEW BLOG! Imagine putting your beloved pet dog on a long lead and chasing him round and round with a flag on a stick. Imagine forcing your dog to run backwards or sideways every time he tries to come to you. Imagine flapping a tarp at your dog until he cowers and stands shivering and shaking in fear. Or how about chasing your beloved pet dog round and round if he doesn’t come when you call him. And every time he turns and runs, you chase him some more. Now imagine hitting and chas...

A Catching Story
NEW BLOG! Below is a call for help that came to my Facebook page. For privacy reasons I’ve changed the person’s name. However, nothing ever changes when it comes to catching horses. Feed always works. ..... Hi Neil. I'm sure you get a million messages a day, but I'm praying you will respond. We have recently purchased a lovely 12yo Gelding for my 10yo daughter. He is a 13.3 show pony. She loves and adores him and he is so perfect for her under saddle. Kind and courteous. HO...

Shying - It's All About Control

Shying - It's All About Control
NEW BLOG! You must have control whenever you ride or handle your horse. Control doesn’t mean being heavy-handed and it doesn’t mean that you have to dominate your horse or show him who’s boss. Control simply means that your horse tries his hardest to work out what you want him to do and he tries his hardest to do it. You must remember that the only part of a horse that anyone can control is his mind. No-one can control a horse’s feet, or his neck, or his mouth, or his...

There's Never a Need to Chase Any Horse in a Round Pen

There's Never a Need to Chase Any Horse in a Round Pen
NEW BLOG! Next time you see a horse being chased in a round pen, please ask yourself: “What’s the answer for the horse and how can he get out of being chased?” “What does the trainer actually want the horse to do? If the trainer wants the horse to face him or follow him, why not show the horse first? Why chase a horse and expect him to work it out for himself? Why not give the horse the answer before any problem is set? After all, the trainer is supposedly teaching t...
