I have had Richard work with my horses in the past, he is professional, and is amazing at getting a good response quickly. he is amazing
What's you do when the horse does not move towards the pressure
You are full of crap. Sling your leg over and ride that well trained horse who will back up with reign movement. So funny.
I'vw begun with groundwork after my 3rd horse and after seeing the videos of Mr. Maxwell here and further on vimeo. After 2 times my welsh cob stands still on the block.
es gibt kein mountaining Problem---so iss es , sorry
What a beautiful horsey!
this is amazing! so clever
4:56 Horse : please stop dat
Very rarely have I seen a true relationship with understanding on both sides, where respect for the horse extends to having that horse's permission to sit on him/her, no saddle, no nasty bit in the mouth, no making the horse do tricks so that you can get ribbons and prizes, etc. But most people don't get it. Their egomania makes such a proposition sound absurd. Self-centeredness is a universal sickness.
3:48 'I'm not going to praise her right now.'..............You just did. Hello..............You released the pressure, that was her reward.
This is insane. Your mindset is just wrong. Why would I want to annoy my horse? Let alone teach her to move towards pressure, not away from it. And third, she is irritated, annoyed, possibly confused and frustrated now and that's because you have not been clear as to what you want. Every good trainer knows about body language and you profess to be an expert at reading, understanding and diagnosing behavior and yet you completely ignore this mare's language and communication. It's obvious you don't care and your motive is to "make" this horse comply regardless of how she feels about your technique and approach. In the end you don't care about the horse. Your interest is in proving a point, making yourself look "right" and despite how wrong your approach is for this horse, any horse. And, one more thing that drives me nuts about your type, the horse training expert that thinks he knows horses, you don't care at all about this horse, or any horse's feelings. You don't want to praise her, give her positive reinforcement, which would let her know she is doing the right thing, what you want. That would be beneath you. You treat the horse like they are stupid and not worthy of being conscious, intelligent, being sentient. She head butts you because she is unsure, trying to communicate her uncertainty and the more you push she gets frustrated, possibly confused and anxious. So, it escalates. And while you exclaim that she's learned how to move sideways because she no longer want to get tapped by the stick, she still doesn't want to come to the block. In the end, your tactic is pressure and release. Your not dealing with the initial cause of "why" she does not want to stand still. You are treating her like she's stupid and she only has two options, stand still or be moved. And you make the condescending comment about not "humanizing her". Man, you are missing it all! Horses have feelings. While they do not possess the 3rd layer of the brain like humans, the layer that is in charge of analyzing, language and complicated thought, they are smart enough to figure everything out, problem solve. This video proves it. She figured out how to get you to stop tapping her and annoying her.
My mother was on her horse when she got spooked and bucked my mom off and broke her hip and tore her retina.. she was also pregnant. She went to the hospital and they told her she lost the baby. My mom still kept her bourse because she had her for a lot of her life... she went the hospital 3 months later and I was still in there they just missed me the day of her accident😌 I also had a horse before I was born and then she had a baby they were both my babies and would only let me ride them.
Marriage can be so, so smart. It is what I love about them. And often those high energy, highly sensitive mares are the smart ones. They learn very quickly. They also tend to get you over fences safely.
Someone laughing at Richard when he falls .Richard : gives them death stare.Also Richard : looks at horse 'There we go.'Me : DYING INSIDE!!!!:)Me:watching it for the 2nd time in detail and i realise horses know i'm stupid Me:NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO horses was my way to think i was talented now they know
Touch a horse with a stick and you loose it's trust and gain fear. . .
Horses do not naturally move away from close up pressure. They naturally move towards close up pressure. We train horses the opposite of how they should be trained. However, moving towards pressure is actually an aggressive/defensive behavior.
Hate seeing these idiots that think putting a bit in the horses mouth, will make the horse do what you want it to do. Thumbs down. REMOVE THE BIT!
The coloring on that horse is bodacious!
I just surfed past here clicking links, don't know anything about horses, but this is interesting. Is the horse's fur dyed in that pattern or is she wearing a kind of blanket and matching legwarmers? Otherwise that's a pretty unusual color pattern on her coat.
