    I love the constant driving yet reassurance he gives - I watch far too many riders/trainers around here take youngsters into their first couple of classes (in many disciplines) and keep them so cranked and rigid....They may not spook, but they certainly aren't learning to 'face their fears' so to speak......and are later punished for having natural horsey fears.

    This was a video I needed to see today!
    To be loved by a horse should fill us with awe, for we hath not deserved it.

    As an owner/rider of a spook-a-dook, I find this video to be an invaluable lesson. This video is saved to my faves... I shall watch again and again. Though, admittedly, Frodo is getting much better. I ignore his spooks, ride forward and pat him when he relaxes, but they are few and far between now. That in combination with his increased work load makes for a better focused boy.
