"What is going on with my horse?"


Dear Keith...

Wednesday, June 21, 2006

To whom it may concern: I have three horses. One is a paint that I believe had problems from his previous owner, we have come along way to understanding each other. He stills has spooking problems and will take off with me uncontrollably. I am looking for a horse training that can read into what is going on with my horse. I also have a shire/quarter mix and he has terrible ground manners from the previous owner that did not spend enough time with him and let him get away with too much. I am struggling with him, because he is so big and I am 5'2" he takes advantage. Please advise me of a trainer in my area that may be able to help. Thank you Jonette

Suggested Article: "Ready for Your Next Spook?"
It's not a matter of "if" your horse spooks, it's "when." It's not a matter of how broke your horse is. Sooner or later it will see something that makes it spook. You can't control your environment so you can't blame your environment. If...
