Life long learner

I love being challenged on conventional thanking and how it relates to our horses. This podcast helps me to continue to learn and grow to become a better horse person but also have a grace with myself and others along the way.

Love this podcast.

Awesome and helpful. Also it’s impossible to be crabby if you’re skipping.

Love Mosies Thought Process and View On Life

I started riding about a year ago and after being taken from horses from about the age of 5/6 until now I took the cheapest and closest option for lessons and didn’t necessarily take the horses well being into consideration. This barn was a saddleseat barn, very strict, very negative reinforcement based and not in humane ways all the time. Many horses were very spooky, very nervous and very much just shells of something that once was very beautiful internally. I left that barn after about 6 months when I truly caught on to the negativity the trainer and volunteers gave off during grooming, tack up and especially riding. I was told very often to “kick harder”, “pull the reins harder”, “demand and show them who’s boss” or “they’re taking advantage of you” and I really always struggled to listen to them, taking that approach with horses has never felt right to me. I switched barns. The one I’m doing lessons for now is decently better but I’m still struggling to get my trainer to understand my view point and where I’m trying to take my riding and horsemanship as a whole. I’m giving her another chance since I’m now doing lessons on my own horse and feel a lot more confident and capable of saying no or simply not doing what she’s telling me if she says to use more pressure or be more aggressive. I’m to a point where I’m seriously thinking of just dropping lessons as a whole and figuring things out on my own with my lovely creature. He’s an 11 year old saddlebred/Arabian (and possibly quarter horse?), who was used mainly as a trail horse but had some negative experience with a boarder at the barn he used to live at. She was a jumper who switched to dressage and was one of his more frequent riders. Upon meeting my horse, Wonder, anytime I was working with him before our move, he’d change the second she was in our general vicinity. Because of this I feel that she was harsh with him. I use a whip sometimes at liberty when asking for cues, but during my first liberty session with him he would fast canter or even at times full on gallop away from me if I even lifted up the whip from its hanger. He is my very first real horse, as in I truly own and care for him, but he’s forcing me to shift my mindset when it comes to horsemanship in and out of the saddle. I’ve found that if he’s punished at all in even the smallest ways, he’s generally more likely to not even listen when I’m asking something of him. When we first started he was very head shy; I’d try to pet his face or even simply put on a halter and he’d get away however he could, now he’s such a loving guy. There’s definitely times he doesn’t want his face touched but more often he’s resting his face on my fiancé or myself and sometimes even leans into scratches and strokes. He slips his nose into bridles and halters and most days is a very easy catch; even waiting at the gate the second I’m in his sight. None of his progress would have occurred if it wasn’t for positive reinforcement and just spending time with him. We had a hangout session before I moved him where I sat in his paddock for nearly two hours waiting for him to come to me so we could go into the arena together. When he finally did he was praised and scratched and given treats. Entering the arena I think he felt like he was in for a hard workout and lots of demand because he didn’t want to go in but eventually he did and I just took off the halter and lead and we walked together. At first he wasn’t sure whether or not he wanted to follow but at the end if I ventured off to the opposite side of the arena without him noticing; when he did notice he was speed walking to me. It’s very hard for me to shift my entire thought process when my foundation was strictly “demand and if they don’t respond, force” so listening to your podcasts has helped me so much in trying my best to understand Wonders wants and needs. I do still use pressure and release since I’m new to training as a whole but VERY new to positive reinforcement, but my goal for myself is to get to a place where I’m coming into the barn without plans, asking him what we should do and just really hearing him. Humans and horses are not meant to be a leader and slave or worker relationship, they’re meant to be friendships and partnerships. I started listening to your podcasts only about 3/4 days ago and I only have a couple more to catch up on (I might be a bit obsessed) but Elle’s story, your conversation on if horses can truly love and your conversation with Margrit Coates just really spoke to me. I’ve been feeling so full of love from my horse even on the days where he decides he doesn’t want to do what I’m asking. I feel I’m starting to hit a breakthrough point and accepting that Wonder also has feelings, wants and needs and that respecting that, giving no frustration or force is of utmost importance. Thank you so so much for your beautiful thought process and respect and love for horses. I hope to someday be as peaceful and understanding as you but until then I’ll continue doing my best to get there regardless of whatever setbacks or complications get thrown at me in life and as a horsewoman. I’d really love to hear more on your story of how you got to where you are with horses and the process you go through when starting liberty and freedom of choices with new horses.
