    OP, you may want to use proper grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. Text speak is not well received here on COTH.

    Well, you are all Big Old Meanies who cannot read for comprehension!

    These instructions are for catching an Ur Horse and obviously will not work on other breeds.

    I almost tried the method on my WB and Hackney pony before realizing my error.
    Whew! That was a close one!
    OR should I say DERP!

    DERP is grammatically correct, and perfectly fine to use in this case.

    The city of Ur is one of the most ancient cities in the world. Artifacts from Ur were at the International Museum of the Horse at the KHP. Pretty impressive to see this 4600 year old artifact from then:

    Standard of Ur - Peace Side which shows a horse in the lower right being led, and this:

    Standard of Ur - War Side which shows horses pulling 4-wheeled carriages geared for war.

    Now, since we're talking about Ur horses... they've had 4600 years to learn how to dodge doing any real work :=)
    Nudging "Almost Heaven" a little closer still...

    I noticed my joke was late to the punch. Laurierace already made it in another of the OP's threads. Because, you KNOW I had to go back through OP's other posts and enjoy the trolly goodness.

    I call BS! I just tried this yesterday on my new horse, and It DID NOT WORK.

    I think we need spelling lessons instead? Sorry, but it really bugs me.

    Well dang! Now I know that I've been doing it wrong.

    Usually I throw the halter in to the field and yell "put that on and get over here bitch!" while I stand at the gate.

    No wonder my horse always looks so angry!

    This must be a joke. That, or a teenager with serious delusions of grandeur.

    I do wonder, what is particularly "westren" about this method of catching "ur" horse?

    Hunter Princesses and DQs wouldn't be caught (heh) dead getting their own horses ready. They wait in the barn with an appropriate (and by "appropriate" I mean alcoholic) beverage until their clean and tacked horse is presented to them by a groom.

    I believe eventers prefer the William Wallace method described earlier in the thread.

    Any tips on how an Enlgish rider can accomplish catching her horse?

    I find that standing by the gate shrieking "you wanna carrot?" While waving said orange goodness in the air will usually achieve a result without my having to expend too much energy...
