    Back them at 3, begin riding at 4. Some breeds seem to be very slow growing and may need a bit longer.

    When I say I don't use it often, I mean to say that once the hobble training is done and the horse has learned the lesson of the hobble then it's rarely needed again.

    I'm not saying that a dressage horse needs to learn to hobble. I'm just saying that it is a method I have learned to use and found very valuable. I use the method because I feel it enhances the basic...

    Oh yes, hobbles. I forgot to mention that. I teach ALL my youngsters to hobble, and the stallions learn the 4-way hobble.
    Let me sum my perspective this way if I may. I feel that as horse...

    The piaffe in that clip was, well, not even a piaffe. The piaffe used to be the crowning glory of GP tests. Now they are just embarrassing.

    I use most of the traditional methods (SRS) plus the round pen. I LOVE the round corral. I go rather slowly without any rushing. I like to do the first backing in a stall but I currently don't have...

    You gotten some good advice and slc's dismount is perfect. Always sort of pounce yourself off the horse, never slide down. And with the treats you will create a NEW HABIT. That's your ticket to...

    The man was a genius. And don't confuse training for the finished product. Not well known but true, even Klimke (as well as other big names) did some training with Nuno. There's a reason for that.

    So, DA are you saying that you never give treats on the ground? Or that you reserve the "special treats" - the peppermints - for the saddle? Very clever.

    imo treats are not bribes if done properly=purposely after a job done well, not too much and timed appropriately. I use treats especially when teaching piaffe/passage as they are so difficult at...

    You can buy adhesive remover. Perhaps at a pharmacy or even a hardware store. I know that adhesive remover is used to remove tape from folks who have wound dressings. You my try that. Good luck.:)

    slc2 is right. You MUST have control of the haunches or you will never get complete suppleness in the jaw or neck. That is what the 'turns' and lateral work is for. You 'teach' the flexions so the...

    Yes, as pluvinel suggests, it is a dressage 'movement', just not in the main stream these days. Great for passage and also better canter departs. Lucky you. Half your work is done. :)
