The Key to Training Success - Patience, Consistency, Kindness [01:41]
Spring 2012 (First year off the track) 5yo off the track Quarter Horse to be used for barrel racing and dressage. Had an issue of head tossing at the start of his training. This issue was fixed with NO equipment changes, NO rough training methods or harsh bits/equipment (was being ridden in a Myler snaffle), NO trank or other types of supplements used to "calm" a horse (ie - equine chill) and NO professional riding/training (only riding done by myself without professional instruction). FYI - this issue was fixed within about a month, maybe less. The tools used to fix this issue were: PATIENCE - getting frustrated causes tension in the rider which transfers to the horse making it impossible for him to relax into the contact and become supple and engaged. Also, losing patience and yanking the rein when soft, consistent contact doesn't seem to be creating results is counterproductive and could irritate the horse or (on a more sensitive horse) upset the horse to the point where they do not trust you enough to work for you. CONSISTENCY - In order for an issue like this to be resolved on a young horse, the rider must always be giving the same message as to not confuse the horse. Every time the head is tossed, contact is held and leg pressure is increased to push the horse into the contact. When he softens and brings his head down he is rewarded - a "good boy" and a pat on the neck with a slight decrease in rein contact tells him he did something right. If this is done the same ...
