Training a pony advice
by: Charlie_Rose

I have a welsh mountain pony who I want to train to ride. He is afraid of everything and doesn't let me catch him and he wants to stay with his horse buddies. When I try getting on him he bucks like crazy. I've tried everything! Got any advice???

please help someone!
by: Newbie horse trainer

I am thinking about buying a "Project Pony". The horse I would like to buy is basically broken in, it just hasn't had someone sit on it before. I've never trained a horse and this would be my first time owning a horse. Even though it seems easy to get a horse used to someone riding it, I'm not sure if I'm ready.

Please help!!!

Thanks in advance!!!

I know this is a late reply, but...

I've ridden quite a few lazy horses and I know it's not much fun! I second what anonymous said in the last comment. Bucking sounds pretty serious, though. I think consulting a professional would be wise. Something that helped me once with a very stubborn horse (also a paint mare!) was squeezing/kicking further behind the girth than I had been. She responded better to that. Hope this helps.

Dear Hoofprints in the Clouds

Dear Hoofprints in the Clouds,

Because my horse isn't lazy, I don't know very much about lazy horses, but I think I can help.

It's necessary to make sure that your horse knows the cues to go. To train your horse to do this, do these steps:

1. Bring you energy up
To do this, sit up, slightly tense up your seat, and look where you want to go. Your horse acts as a mirror of you. If you don't bring up your energy, she won't either.

2. Kiss to her
Make a kissing or clucking sound as a verbal cue to go forward. You could also say "walk on" or something like that.

3. Squeeze with you legs
Start with your thigh, and then use you calf.

4. Kick
If your horse still won't go, give her a kick with your heel. This is a last resort, so try to avoid it.

If you do these steps consistently, they should teach your horse to go with just steps 1-3. If you need to, you can use a bat or a crop after kicking to train her. Most importantly, ALWAYS reward you horse for any attempt to obey. Remember, you can't train a horse overnight!

I hope this helps!

Can someone please help?
by: Hoofprints in the Clouds

My paint mare is soo stubborn! Sometimes it's super duper hard JUST to get her to walk! OR she will go too fast!

Is there such a thing as a happy in-between?

I'm afraid to push her to hard, because the last time I tried to get her to trot, she bucked me off, and I lost a lot of my confidence.

Will some one please answer me? I've tried a different page but no one got back to me (it's been a couple weeks).

Should she stay or go?
by: Anonymous

My horse is over 20 years old, and everyone says I should sell her and get a new horse. She has leg problems so I can't ride her, and when I first got her I fell off. I'm to chicken to ride her even if I could. I have had some family problems the last few years, but every day I went outside and she was waiting for me. It helped a lot to talk to her I don't know if she could understand me, but it felt like she did. What do you think I should do?

I say you should use the DUH method since that is the most effective one out there.

What do you think?
by: MKrider

I would like to start show jumping. I'm 13 years old. Is that too old to start? I've been riding for about two years. Is that not enough experience? Please comment.

Eventer at heart
by: Anonymous

Hi! I have ridden horses all my life and do just about everything, especially anything English/jumping, but my true passion is in Eventing. My horse is a beautiful pure Arabian and he is an amazing show jumper and eventer (no fence too high for him) and he loves doing it but recently he's been getting a bit too excited.

I was at an eventing camp a couple weeks ago and in the middle of the cross-country lesson Storm (my horse) started rearing and bucking and trying to buck me off when I asked him to trot through the water. Luckily, I'm used to riding bucks and rears and problem horses due to my background of riding any horse that was available (most were crazy). But it was still and issue as Storm normally loves going through and jumping into water. I tried and the instructor tried walking him into the water but whenever we approached it he would do the same thing, eventually he took one step in so we ended on that but I need help!

I have a super big eventing show in one week (I'm trying to qualify for USPC champs) and one of the jumps you have to jump into the water, please help!

Inexperienced In This Area
by: Jademerson

Hi,I am 13. I have a lot of experience training horses, but I have never gotten into training one specific style (i.e. Western, English, Dressage, Gymkhanna) so i took on a project horse. Her name is Tracy, she is a purebred Tennessee walker, she did dressage at one point. I unfortunately have no knowledge in this area, I can become her alpha, give her confidence and such, but I think she still remembers her old training and she is getting confused with the new stuff. If anyone knows a good dressage trainers website or some great instruction book that would help a lot.

To Newbie Horse Trainer
by: Jademerson

I would definitely recommend starting with Pat and Linda Parelli training method simply because they are a lot more gentle than Clinton Anderson, but only go with them for about a year or until you complete level 1, whatever comes first. Then switch to Clinton Anderson, but simply remember this you needn't always be as rough as him, use your on judgment and knowledge as to this.

Jockey Girl
by: Anonymous

It's going to be hard to convince your parents to move into your grandparents house. So why don't you ask if you could spend the summer with your grandparents or spend some weeks there. If I didn't live on a ranch right now, I would probably spend the summer on my aunt's ranch.
