Thanks for this video! This will help me out a lot with my green broke
Mustang! He does not stand when getting on. How about when you are tacking
up is there a way to keep them from moving around when your trying to tack
them up or groom?
Not bad !!
Nicely done video…thank you I also like to look at giving the horse an
opportunity to practice standing still, and if they do not want to stand
still I will ask the horse to go left, change direction, stop, etc… for 2
min or so.Then give the horse an opportunity to stand still…and repeat if
the horse moves off again. The horse becomes more responsive to the bit &
leading at the same time. I also like to do this when the horse has been
ridden for a bit, to allow them to be successful
what do i do since my horse side passes away from me every time i try to
@Horse1245456156 have you taught him to give to bit pressure? he would be
more likely to understand the halter because he’s been trained to with
leading. Maybe try and use a halter with a bridle over top and when
stopping use both, then do it without pulling on the leadrope, if he stops
and gives to the bit, reward him. It takes time!
My Appendix Quarter Horse always tries to go any direction possible not
only forward. Sometimes he bolts bckwards.
I may be a little cheesy but I usually do groundwork (lounging) before I
get on. It takes the edge off. And I always lounge before getting onto an
Oh there’s nothing wrong with it. But, when I ride my horse if I did that
to her she would take off at a full run. Or you’d get one heck of a flying
lesson. You just can’t do that to any horse I guess was my point. : )
Hi, Thanks for the tips. I’ve tried but now my horse is completely frantic
about being mounted and as soon as I start positioning the reins he starts
prancing around and I tried getting my foot in the stirrup but he galloped
off. How do I calm him? Many thanks for your advice, Elise Switzerland
lean a little more into his shoulder, but try only picking up his foot,
doing 3 quick strokes (even if you dont get much off) and lowering it down
to the ground (some horses will stomp their feet down). This shows that you
control when he puts his feet down. REWARD (pet or treat). even this small
thing is a part of the ultimate goal. He just picked up his feet and kept
them up until you asked him to put them down. Repeat with all legs multiple
sessions Good luck and enjoy (9 years riding)
Good video. I have a dog training channel, but love to learn about other
Oh yeah she will stop. I think the people that had her before me abused her
or didn’t fully train her cuz she spooks but at least it’s in place.
Western Saddle and Bridle.
my horse doesn’t necessarily walk off but she gets annoyed when people
mount her and she pins her ears back and threatens to kick(but never really
does). She never used to do this before, she also likes to throw her head
when I take her bridle and halter off but has no problem with me putting it
on and she never did this before…she started these bad habits around the
same time. How can I teach her to be more tolerant of people mounting her?
thanks. I had no idea how to stop my horse from moving. great video…
Mr. Rocha, While there is nothing at all wrong with what you demonstrate (I
appreciate your good timing with releases), I would only add that some
horses move off while being mounted due to back pain and/or poor saddle
fit. My own horse started doing this, and I didn’t know why. Turns out his
saddle was a bit too big and thus twisted slightly as I mounted. The horse
had lost weight and I didn’t realize it had changed the saddle fit. I had
the saddle adjusted and he improved.
Wow, wish I knew this when my friend had her horse that kept walking off.
my horse doesnt listen to the bit. It takes alot to stop her and she likes
to go whatever speed she wants. but wen i ask her to go faster myself, she
gets moody and pinns her ears and backs up, what do i do?
i need help with that too. A horse I ride hates other horses lol
Larry, Do you put on traveling clinics or at your ranch? How do I find the
schedule? You’re a great teacher… Thanks for everything I’ve learned
catching your clips…
My horse is like a rock when I mount but when I try to get him to stop when
I’m riding he doesn’t listen. I’ve switched bits and went to a hackamore
once too and he did okay with the hackamore but then he stopped truning so
I went back to the bit and if I ride him with his halter he’s perfect and
stops when I tell him to.
@xxWolfofDarknessxx That bit is a common snaffle. It’s used in the English
world just as it is in the Western disciplines.
@ilovecub1 just wondering, have you checked your horses back (and
shoulders, hips etc) for soreness, and have you had a dentist look at her
teeth? she could be sore for any number of reasons, saddle fit being one of
the most common reasons. and the behaviour you describe with her bridling
sounds like her teeth might be causing her pain, more so when the bit is
taken out then put in. just an idea anyway. good luck
its a cutting saddle and its made to get a good grip with your hand so you
wont fall offf/
Nice tips and a very good looking horse!
@moodysoup i do that sometimes i just put her in the round pen (w/ out a
loung) i clap at her n i run her around for a few minutes but she still
Thanks for the tips. They work! PS: Great lookin horse.
I dont mount from the ground because I’m 5ft 3 and I ride a 16.3hh horse :L
but I notice that when I get on my horse he instantly walks forward
regardless of whether I’ve got my feet in the stirrups, reins properly
gathered or even adjusted the girth a bit :/
IT”S A CUTTING SADDLE!! The horn is designed to be easy to grab and hold on
to. Otherwise the rider would fly right off when the horse is cutting a
cow. Larry Trocha specializes in training cutting and riening horses.
maybe start working her a little so she can release all that energy and
then she will have patience,, wats that thing that they run in circle .. i
only know it in spanish. is it called lunging.. yeah something like that..
not that tiried though just enough for her to be relaxed when you mount
I have the biggest problem ever. My 18 year old Arabian mare shies away
from me when I prepare to mount. I am a short person and have to use a
mounting block. She wriggles horridly when I put the block next to her. As
soon as I step up and grab my reins, she side steps away from me and I fall
to the ground. What should I do?
Have you vet checked him? It might be a reaction to pain. Either way, to
prevent this, you don’t… kick him or act like he’s a barbie doll as has
been suggested, but you actually rein him around and make him go stand
where you had him before. If you get his head turned around, he’s going to
more than likely reverse directions; ie, going forward. A bit of heel
pressure and a firm voice, using your SEAT to drive him forward, and you’ll
have a problem solved.
Going to try this. My horse will not stand still while I mount. I know it
is very dangerous to get on him while he is walking away, and by allowing
him to do this for the past year or so, I have trained him to think this is
ok. Thanks for the tip of backing him up every time he walks off.
it would’ve been a better teaching video if he used a horse that gave him
more trouble. “Here let me show you how I teach guitar, this is how you
teach Eddie Van Halen how to play a really easy song!”
@fidelpecoso head down means he is a lower rank than you.
Your right the reins were tight because he use to move forward when I tried
to mount him and as soon as I get on him he wants to go forward Thanks for
all your advise
thank you for the help on this! my horse HATES to stand still, but instead
of walking frowards, she turns to try and face me. Also, she’s 17hh and i
can’t mount from the ground so i use a block, but she’s scared of that too.
@whitewingeddove soreness would have been my first guess but she has been
doing it for 3 years now and she doesn’t get ridden that often so I’m not
sure what would make her sore and when i groom her on her back and hip area
she doesn’t seem bothered…as for her bridle she does it with her halter
too which has nothing to do with her teeth I am starting to think she
doesn’t like her ears touched for some reason which she always loved her
ears touched before, hopefully she wasn’t hit in the face
Ok thanks but my guy keeps backing up when I try to get on What can I do?
