Timing of the Release While Backing

With Buck Brannaman This article originally appeared in Eclectic Horseman Issue No.64 As in other situations, when you are backing your horse, a release lets him know that he has found what you are asking of him. If you are backing your horse in a soft feel, you should release with every step as the...

Romanticizing Bad Horsemanship | Equestrian Blog

Totally agree. So many great riders and idealistic dreamers not realizing the pain and suffering they are causing their horses. Good horsemanship is not equivalent to hyper control or vigilance. A great horseman does not ride an out of control or dangerous horse well. A great horseman takes a dangerous, anxious, angry, pained, or unhappy horse and creates a willing partner, who voluntarily gives his energy and effort to the rider and the job. You shouldn't have to continually increase pressure to get a response. Your should continually release pressure and apply less and less until the slightest cue is rewarded with effort.

There is a popular trend among horse-lovers, that of romanticizing bad horsemanship. Beautiful images with special filters and dramatic angles, and showing the horse in distress due to his rider.

TS MULES - Ty & Skye Evans Mulemanship Clinics

"Give them the freedom to go so they make the CHOICE to stay."

This is something you will hear Ty say at our clinics more than once.

We have a mule here in this clinic that is quick to pull the lead rope out of your hands and run off so instead of trying to corner him, play 'catch me if you can' or pull some grain out to bribe him, Ty pushed him away until he was ready to be caught. Ty let the mule make the decision to stand still instead of run off. This mule was running all over the campground and slowly started making smaller circles closer and closer to his owner. When he finally stopped, Ty told his owner to go ahead and get him, he's ready to be caught. This is similar to how we deal with herd bound animals, keeping them away from what the think is their "happy place" and letting them figure out where YOU want them to be by pressure and release. Pressure is on when they are not where you want them, pressure is off as they make their way toward where you do want them. They find out that their happy place is where pressure is off.

I never tell people to ignore fear. Fear is your brain saying, "Hey, if you don't stop doing what you're doing, you're going to get hurt." I encourage people to listen to their fear and then learn how to control the situation. You gain control of the situation by educating yourself and learning how to work with your horse. When you can control your horse, you gain confidence, and if you have confidence in your horse and in your ability to control him, you can relax and have fun. - Clinton #ApplyTheMethod #MotivationMonday

"Once a horse has dumped a rider three or four times, he might well be bucking out of habit, not fear. At this point, what might’ve started out as a fear issue has turned into a lack-of-respect issue." - Clinton #ApplyTheMethod

31 Things To Do With Your Horse (other than riding)

Many people come to the barn, drag their horse out of the pasture, throw on the saddle and take off on a ride, then they wonder why they don't have a closer bond with their horse and their horse actually doesn't even like them.
It's important to do activities with your horse they find entertaining or stimulating that don't always involve work. A nice little list on some of the extra things you can do with your horse.

Sometimes you can't ride. Sometimes you don't want to. Here is a list of 31 fun and useful things to do with your horse - other than riding...

This is great. Clients sometimes ask why it's so important to work on the bend in the body both on the ground and in saddle... Produces athleticism and softened in all areas. Super cool to see it in the skeletal structure in action

A different perspective of the spine. This is a great photograph as it shows how positioning of the head and neck influences bend in the back. Taken from my book Horse Anatomy for Performance available from here http://www.horsesinsideout.com/b1ha4p.html.

So true in every aspect of horsemanship...

Horse Charming found this educational sign at Beamish museum in County Durham. The Equine Defence League who produced this, was founded in 1909 by Francis Cox, his initial objective being to improve the conditions for pit ponies working in the mines. His cause was supported by such big names as Jerome K Jerome, Jack London, James Keir Hardy and Winston Churchill.

These signs could at one time be found in places where horses would be pulling heavy loads up hill.

We couldn´t agree more, this is so relevant to every situation in which a horse is in service today, perhaps more than ever before.
