Horse training disclaimer
My training accounts in this blog are not intended to be instructions, rather they are descriptions of personal experiences with our particular horses. Please do not assume that any other horse will behave or react the same as the ones described here. Each horse is an individual, each person has their own unique approach to handling and training.
Consult with a professional trainer, or at least study up for all training situations. Incomplete knowledge is just that, damage can be done unintentionally, horses can be unpredictable and therefore dangerous. The horses we have done the most extensive training of were bred and raised by us since birth, so our familiarity with them and theirs with us is as complete as it can be. This helps us read them and know what to expect from them.
Our hope is simply that the horses you enjoy might benefit from some of the ideas presented here.
