    Sounds like he doesn't know what you want yet.

    Coming in to you is not a bad behavior.

    Assuming you have some sort of stick and string, I would direct it at his shoulder, and swing it...

    I'm one minute in, and I consider it abusive.

    ETA: By 2 minutes in, the horse is being whipped for doing nothing. He has no idea what is expected of him.

    I have found that there is sometimes a fine line between "You should get that horse out on the trail and put some miles on him" and "If your horse isn't ready to deal with what you might encounter on...

    I get that a vest won't prevent a broken neck, arm, leg, shoulder, etc.

    But it could prevent that **horrible** side bruising I had the last time I fell.

    I cannot wear a vest in the summer, in...

    Messy house bothers me more. My tackroom is small. There's not a whole lot of stuff in it. And I only spend enough time in there to grab whatever item. It's not like I sit in there and take in...

    In a word: Yes.

    When I was horse shopping, do much "dressaging" too young was absolutely a no-go for me.

    Very sad for the over-eager owner to do this. :(

    How to read a nutrition label.

    How to feed an IR horse.

    How to keep a pasture safe for grazing (preventing founder, laminitis, etc.)

    What supplements are really necessary? How do you know?...

    Without question, my two (a Fjord and a donkey) enjoy being touched, scratched, and rubbed by my fingers. Without question, they choose to put themselves under my hands for scratches when they could...

    I have so much to say on this subject, I don't even know where to start.

    There is so much to being an horse person besides riding.

    I'm one of those who bought a Fjord because of my fears. It...

    Yeah. Brony. That's the word she used for the guys who are in to it. Shaking my head.

    I have a teenage friend who is very into My Little Ponies. Not in a sweet little girl way, but in a teenage cult way. Like, she wears a pony helmet to church. I wonder if the My Little Pony kids...

    Well, I'll be Debbie Downer and say that we had a couple of problems doing this.

    With mine, I think he has figured out that most of the time, cooperating is the easiest thing to do. If he tries to squirm out of the job, I'm just going to keep asking him until he does it. If he...

    You go to the place where the decision makers are, and that might not be the horse show.

    You get all your friends to go with you.

    It was a bust here.

    And that's after using it semi-successfully for 15 years with a different horse.

    When I got my current horse, it was clear that clicker training was going to ruin him. He...
