It doesn’t matter what sport you do with your horse – western pleasure, dressage, trail, jumping, cutting, reining, etc., every single sport revolves around the horse being soft, supple and relaxed in order to perform his best. In order to get a horse soft and supple throughout his entire body, you need to concentrate on five body parts: the head and neck, poll, shoulders, ribcage and hindquarters. Think of these five body parts like the hinges on your horse’s body. Each time you ride your horse, you have to oil those hinges to make them work properly. - Clinton #ApplyTheMethod #clintonanderson #downunderhorsemanship #horses #horsemanship

When I went down to feed my cattle this morning, look what I found ... a free goat! Woo hoo, looks like I can retire! - Clinton #freegoat #downunderhorsemanship #neverknowwhatyoullfind

Participants in Clinton's Fundamentals Clinic and their horses are making good progress, and we've got a great group of spectators with us at the Kings Arena in Great Falls, MT! #ApplyTheMethod #clintonanderson #downunderhorsemanship #horses #horsemanship

I'm spending all weekend with my horses, no lessons, no emails, no filming. It's just me, my horses and the Method. That's something I really value. Hope you all have a great weekend. Cheers - Clinton #ApplyTheMethod #clintonanderson #downunderhorsemanship #horses #horsemanship

How seriously you take responsibility for clear, consistent cues is directly related to your horse's responsiveness to you and respect for you. - Clinton #applythemethod #downunderhorsemanship #clintonanderson #horses #horsemanship

Studly getting some much needed groundwork and desensitizing. Keep your groundwork interesting and find new ways to challenge your horses or they will get bored with doing the same exercises every time. Letting him go slow and taking it at a slow pace is crucial when introducing anything new to a horse. In the second clip I have him going over a couple pieces of wood. Makes him pay attention to his feet and where he places them. When I asked him to change direction, he came into my personal space without me inviting him. That is why I wiggled the rope and backed him away from me, then sent him off again. Making progrsss! #LAperformancehorses

Evening bareback ride in a halter and lead. This horse is just the best ❤️ #aphaproud #painthorse #nosaddle #applythemethod #downunderhorsemanship #mybestfriend

Yanni had a special visitor yesterday, who helped me out by riding him and seeing how he takes to someone different and a different style of riding. Yanni will be going home to his owners next week to dabble in a bit of dressage.
He certainly made me proud! One comment made was "I find it hard to believe he's new to being ridden."
Another testament to the Method - thanks to Clinton, we have a means to create safe, broke horses, regardless of how long they've been under saddle.
Going to miss this dude but excited to soon welcome our next training horse - another familiar face!

Finally got this mare loaded and in my pen. Took about an hour and a half to load her. No whip used, just myself a rope halter and lead rope. It was a lot of sweating, patience and moving side to side, backwards and forwards. Everytime she backed away from the trailer I moved her feet. Eventually I got 2 feet on the ramp and backed her off a few times,then we got all 4 feet, then all the way in. I backed her out then a couple times and got her to stand calm in the trailer. Closed it up and home we came. She is settling in good and ready to start some ground work! #trailerproblems #trailering #training #horsetraining #clintonanderson #downunderhorsemanship #krhorsemanship #aqha #mares #patience #moveherfeet #applythemethod #forwardsbackwardsleftright #stubborn #rightthingseasy #wrongthingsdifficult #sorrelmare

This is Josh Lyons (#joshlyons) and the first time, maybe second or third time, anybody'd ever put weight on this horse - a very big day for the horse and owner! (He holds the left rein tight for a bit of immediate control - but also in case the horse should jump; its rear would be guided away.)

An understanding of how the horse thinks and reacts is the key to your success as a horseman. -Clinton Anderson

This dude made me feel like I knew what I was doing today 😂 he's had a couple days off recently and had a lot more to give because of it. You would have a really hard time finding a more agreeable horse. #myunicorn #dreamhorse #hollywoodsgamble #aphaproud #painthorse #downunderhorsemanship #applythemethod #noworries
