Topic: Webinar - Ground Driving - Leading from Behind

 

Taking Relational Horsemanship into Driving!

 

In this webinar we dig into our style of positive horsemanship and progressions to make sure your horse is ready to drive.  

Whether we're doing groundwork, riding or driving, one thing is common: your horse must be following you. For that to be the case, you must be leading.  In Part 1 of this series, we're working with a couple of horses.  Neither horse has ever been driven before.

We really explore the pieces we need to have in place so that when we start Leading from Behind, our horse is attentive, focused on us and relaxed.  One horse struggles with certain elements; that's a great opportunity to demonstrate how we work though them.

Topic: Webinar - What You and your Horses need to know about Ponying

 

There's three in this team!

 

Ponying is not simply leading one horse while you're riding another.  Ponying is a great way to show new horses or colts some very important things about being ridden and following you.  

When we start ponying, we have a team of three in a leadership structure: you at the top, your riding horse in the middle and the pony horse at the bottom.  This gives us a huge advantage we don't have in the groundwork: your riding horse can work your pony horse for you, and in just about every maneuver possible, from forward with gait changes and stops, to backups and side-passes.  It's advantageous because your riding horse can communicate to your pony horse much quicker and clearer - being a horse, that is!

Ponying can be a lot of fun and involves leading and sending...but never pulling or dragging.  It's a great opportunity to show a new horse or colt the feel of a rein and how to follow in athletic precision.

Topic: Webinar - How Horses REALLY Communicate

 

Horses communicate in ways that we're generally not taught, but that we all naturally understand.

If you've spent any time with Amazing Horse Country, whether in a clinic or webinar or private session, you've likely heard Scott talk about the ways in which horses communicate.

In this webinar, we're really going to dig into those.  Define them.  Demonstrate them.  

When we are working with others, be they people, horses, dogs or what have you, it's essential that we can communicate in a way they understand.  Imaging trying to teach a person how to do something intricate - when that person doesn't speak English at all, and you don't know their language.  It would be frustrating to both parties involved.  Many training methods focus on teaching the horse a piece of human communication.

I've found the deepest and most clear way to communicate with a horse doesn't involve teaching them anything at all.  It involves us learning, because they already know how to speak "horse".

Topic: Webinar - When Your Horse Says, "NO!"

 

What do you do when your horse outright refuses something?

There are many things that we're taught that were likely derived from frustration.  Many of these things are not supportive of your relationship.

In this webinar we're going to explore the reasons why your horse is struggling and give you some tools to help them through it.  

Have any examples?  We'd like to hear them.  Just email us at info@amazinghorsecountry.com - you just might be in the webinar!

Topic: Webinar- 4 Different Horses, 4 Different Progressions - Part II

 

PART II.

We're going to dig right into a whole pile of training scenarios with this series.

If you've been following our webinars, you'll have heard me explain the concept of progressions.  Progressions are related paths of exercises that we use to train horses in our style of horsemanship.  Horse training should be anything but linear.  Instead, what we do is closer to chipping away at a block of wood to make a sculpture.  We might work on one side, then another part of it, and as the carving emerges, the parts that we need to work on are revealed.  We end up with a beautiful carving.  

Working with a horse is much the same.  As we dig into some facets of their training, our relationship and their athleticism, we begin to see the horse as a unique individual that has specific needs.  It's our job as horsepeople to meet those needs.

In this series, we're going to take a look at 4 different horses.  Namely, Chip, Ditch, Zeus and Bailey. I'll start working with each one of them, discover what they need and work to provide it as we progress in their training.  All our training will be filmed, and you'll have the benefit of step by step explanations and the theory behind everything I'm doing.

This is going to be a big project, but awesome for our members! (and of course, awesome for the horses!)

Topic: Webinar - Ground Driving - Leading from Behind Part II

 

Taking Relational Horsemanship into Driving!

 

In Part II of this series, we'll take our work from Part I and put it to task.  We'll be working on ensuring your horse can follow you under the pressures of objects moving behind and beside them.  

Using the progressions we introduced in the previous session, we'll advance to having our new horses pulling objects (or maybe even me on skis!  Who knows?)

We'll be getting into tack, cues and communication as well.  Joining us will be Verne and Connie from Horse Drawn Rides for All Occasions.
