Testade en ny övning idag "Pick me up off the fence". Dock hade jag inget staket men läktaren funkar ju lika bra, så upptäckte jag med att man kan ju passa på o "flexa" när man ändå står där 😅🦄 Och den blonda lilla mannen fick även provtesta sin nya flughuva, nöjd 💞😂 #lovemyhorse #horsesofinstagram #downunderhorsemanship

Future reining mustang in the making?🤷🏻‍♀️ look at that stop! Now if we can get him to stop being a jack wagon in the lope we'd be sitting pretty good.

And we're back😍❤ my girl finally got her shoes, just did a little recap with her yesterday but did some schooling today. She knows her leg aids and leads very well so lead changes here we come💖 we did follow the fence and some rollbacks❄ this horse is completely amazing!! Shows some promise one handed and then her halts are so on point i'm speechless. This horse has impressed me countless of times and i know for a fact that there are more impressive moments coming❤🌈🌸 #downunderhorsemanship

A great trail horse is no accident; he’s been trained to do his job well. Just because a horse rides well in the arena doesn’t mean he’ll be the same calm, respectful and responsive partner on the trail. The reason for that is because the elements drastically change when you take your horse out of the arena.

The arena is what I call a controlled environment. You’ve got four walls around you and the environment stays pretty much the same. You can basically control what happens inside those walls. If the horse does spook or bolt, he can’t run 10 miles down the road; he’ll eventually be stopped by a fence.

The trail, on the other hand, is an uncontrolled environment. The environment is always changing and you can’t predict all that might happen. A kid could come racing his bike around a bend in the trail, joggers could run up behind you, a deer could jump out of the brush … the possibilities are endless. On the trail, you are at the mercy of the environment, and your horse’s ability to calmly and safely handle whatever situation presents itself relies on his having a solid foundation of training and you being an effective leader.

I never start a horse’s training on the trail; I teach him the Fundamentals in a controlled environment like an arena. I set him up for success and ensure I have basic control of him before taking him into an uncontrolled environment. As a general rule, anything your horse does in the arena will be worse outside of it. He’s going to be edgier, spookier and more reactive on the trail.
Someone usually says, “But, Clinton, I don’t have an arena to train my horse in.” My pushback is: If you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse. If you really want your horse to be a great riding partner – one that’s safe and respectful – you’ll find a way to help him succeed. Does that mean you might have to find a boarding stable with an arena to board your horse at for 30 days or so? Yes. Will you maybe have to drive 45 minutes every day to go work with him? Yes. If you want it bad enough, you’ll find a way. - Clinton #ApplyTheMethod #clintonanderson #downunderhorsemanship #horsesofinstagram

Saw this yesterday and it was so fitting. Sometimes I feel like @downunder.horsemanship is speaking directly to me. There are bad days a good days when training horses you have to let go of what happened yesterday and just keep moving forward the best you can. #applythemethod #downunderhorsemanship #hemi #qtsgottastrekenhemi #cieuxchevaux #cieux_cheveaux_performance_horses

Oops...
I totally forgot to post this a few days ago😂
Anyways, she did GREAT today, she’s always had a problem with bucking me off when I lope but today she did really good with it! The #downunderhorsemanship method has been working wonders for her attitude👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Even trotted some figure 8’s around a couple barrels (I can only trot since I don’t have an arena “yet”😉) And shes definitely getting the pattern in her head!😁

If you would like to audit please let me know. Bring a chair and pack a lunch. Learn how the DUH Method can help you build a safe and respectful bond between you and your horse; on the ground and in the saddle. Auditors please park in the lower parking lot and walk up to the arena. Please PM me if you are interested and I’ll get you on the list. Clinic time is 9:00am- 6:00. There will be 2 sessions.

He’s such a good boy.❤️❤️#downunderhorsemanship

Day three of training with Brody went well. We are still going slowly to prevent any injury. But that’s ok because we have plenty of desensitizing and flexing to do. So far Brody seems to be the most mature 3 yo of all time. #applythemethod #downunderhorsemanship #600ottbs #horse #rescuenation

One of the best ways to deter a horse from bolting or doing any other dangerous behavior on the trail is to check in with him every once in a while by asking him to move his feet and soften his body. As you’re walking down the trail, ask him to two-track or sidepass. Do a bending transition. Draw him to a stop. Keep him tuned in to you and on his toes.
I’m not saying you can’t ever put him on a loose rein, but every so often, you need to put his feet to work and get him to check back in with you. If you only ride your horse on autopilot, letting him go down the trail on a loose rein, he’ll find something to do with his energy and I can guarantee that whatever he finds to do won’t be your idea of a good time. - Clinton #ApplyTheMethod #clintonanderson #downunderhorsemanship #horsesofinstagram

Patience 🏔 I think that is the top virtue needed when working with a horse. It’s been a great learning process but even after only a few weeks I can feel myself getting antsy. Kazí definitely isn’t a “jump on and go” type of horse. At least not at this point. So it’s important that I’m patient and consistent with this process 🙏🏻
