Training Tip of the Week: Use Squeeze, Cluck and Spank to stop a grass-snatcher.

  If your horse stops at a patch of clover and refuses to move, even if you’re bumping him on the sides, he’s telling you you’re being ineffective and you need to get more aggressive. Remember to use Squeeze, Cluck and Spank. Squeeze the horse with the calves of your legs to get him to […]

Training Tip of the Week: Hard-to-catch horse tip: Use the halter as a desensitizing tool.

  Most horses balk at the sight of their owner coming to the pasture with halter in hand because more than likely, they’re going to be taken to the barn, thrown in the cross-ties and saddled up. It doesn’t take long for horses to associate the halter with hard work and sweat. You need to […]

Training Tip of the Week: Don’t tie a cinchy horse when saddling

  A common mistake I see people make that can ultimately lead to a horse becoming cinchy is tying their horses when they saddle them. Whenever you tie a horse up, you take away his ability to move his feet or flee from danger. Then, if he gets scared or reactive, in his mind the […]

Training Tip of the Week: The value of turnout

  Horses are a herd animal and their bodies are designed to be on the move. I try to keep my horses on turnout as much as I possibly can. It’s the best thing for them because they don’t develop bad habits and they’re just happier in general. The more you put a horse in […]

Training Tip of the Week: Don’t be too quick to judge pinny ears

  When a horse is working really hard and paying close attention, often he’ll tip his ears back to the rider showing that he is concentrating. Cutting horses are a good example because they’ll often pin their ears back on their head as they’re cutting cattle. They stop and turn and will often lower their […]
