Training a horse can be a challenge. Follow along as I train Jessie using Natural Horsemanship principles. Jessie is a Foundation Quarter Horse born in 2000. Most of the what I learned about horses and horsemanship has come from studying Clinton Anderson's Downunder Horsemanship although I've taken several clinics, studied other trainers, and worked with other horses.
Follow along and share our experiences.

Saturday Afternoon Ride
Saturday was windy but warm enough to have a pleasant ride. There were some baby ducks along the canal.
We kept a good pace out to the development. Jessie was energetic and we loped. Her speed was:
On the way back we decided to ride through the obstacles we had worked on from the ground.
She was very calm going through the trench. Luckily, we had some kids come by in an ATV, so we got to practice that as well.
We were very fortunate to get this ride in. It threatened rain all day on Sunday. We did a little groundwork with Dusty and took some video. Hope to have that up soon.
