That was amazing!!!! I'm not sure any of our horses could do that!

Our black mare used do to that sort of stuff for a living. All the running/stop sliding/flying lead changes/etc. She was worth $10,000. Now she isn't worth anything because she got caught up in a tinsel wire electric fence But she's living a happy retired life on our farm now at only 8 years old!

My last Quarter horse was trained to go bitless, saddleless, etc...and yes, it does take a very special partnership with the horse to accomplish this kind of thing; I raised and trained that horse from the day he was born! But with every horse it all begins with respect and trust, and an understanding of how equines work, and respond to different cues that we send off. If you have a horse's respect, and gain a deeper trust through that respect, you can do anything together as a team. My current horse is well on his way to being able to be ridden bitless, bridleless...it is such a fabulous feeling to be able to ride a horse in such a way too, because you know that it can be 'ruined' in a heartbeat if you lose your horse's trust and respect. Just being able to work with a horse on the ground with nothing on him is a challenge in trust building. You have to pay attention to your own body signals to the horse, or you could inadvertantly push him away!

That's awesome!!!! I wish we had a round pen! I would love to do something like that! I think my little sister's horse has the best head for it though. She's very calm and very willing to please. My mare is SOOOO high strung!

My current horse is not what I would consider a naturally 'calm' horse; when I got him he was very nervous and high strung; he can still be that way; however, it takes persistant and consistant training to condition a horse to react in a calm way, instead of a 'high strung' way to things. I actually prefer an active horse to train, over a 'calm' one, because you get more reactions out of them, so you know they are actually thinking through things...with calm horses you don't always know if they are thinking about things that are happening to them or if they are just 'sleeping' through it all, and then one day they might just 'wake up' and react to something you 'thought' you worked through with them! Ooops!!
