Training Tip: Overcoming a Horse’s Ingrained Bucking Habit

Question: I bought my horse Hank, a 4-year-old Quarter Horse, last fall, and he had a good start. I was told he could be a little cinchy and he had bucked before but he “was honest about it.” I found that he had some holes in his training—he was not soft enough, was a little […]

Training Tip: Advice for Dealing With a Runaway Horse

Question: My horse bolts. Anything could set him off. A bird flew out of the tree, the neighbor’s donkeys ran down the hill, or another horse in the group kicked a log. The Method reduced his bolting by 80 percent, but I still have the issue when we come upon anything that’s new or happens […]

When thinking of obstacles to introduce to your horse so that he’s prepared to negotiate them when you’re on the trail, you’ve probably covered the obvious ones: water, bridges, hills and gullies.
