My Horse Training Stories : Discovering Horse Problems Australia
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I discovered John and Linda Oleary’s Horse Problems Australia about 18 months ago and it was what started me on my journey to where I am now … wanting to be a horse trainer and thinking that maybe I can do it … not just by what I have learnt though Horse Problems Australia but how much it was already in line with my own training techniques and even more so the level of horsemanship they display.

I just happened to stumble upon Horse Problems Austrlaia when I was searching the net for info on floating or trailering a horse and if the techniques I used were correct. I Really hadn’t really researched diff training methods in the past and was more doing my own thing . John had written an article about all the diff methods gave an explanation and rated them .. too my surprise I was actually doing the right thing… well a combination of 2 old school methods Tom Roberts and Kell Jefferies. … which very much encouraged me to read on… and began my brain thinking …

I gleam lots of bits of usefull info … but it wasn’t until I started looking for a project horse and ended up with a half broken arab that I really thought I needed some back up as to whether I was doing the right thing … or whether I was going to get myself killed …

Half broken … yeah half broken … that’s a whole story in itself!! But the gist of it is that u couldn’t get on him or sit on him … he would just buck … and if u stopped the bucked was like sitting on a time bomb every muscle in his body tight waiting to explode …. I was worried I will tell u that … but im also stubborn … so just kept on … 12 months have past now and could easily go out and do a basic dressage test .. any prelim … how did I achieve this without getting killed simple …. The one rein stop!! Thanks John .. best tool in my tool box … followed closely by running reins … more of that later ..

I have to say the greatest thing I have learnt is the safety aspect of having your horse do a one rein stop … it has saved my arse numerous times when a horse has gone to buck and bolt … it shuts them down in 2 secs flat … well actually as fast as the rider can react !!

That’s what I have realized horse training is … having a huge amount of diff tools in your knowledge which u can draw upon as u go … each horse is different and your techniques must be adapted accordingly … otherwise u get stuck … or confuse the horse … which can lead to major danger and in the extreme a rear

So thank you Horse Problems Australia so many new tools … many of which I will discuss as well as how i found using them and the results I had with the horses ... so please keep an eye out for those stories.. Thanks Nic
