Horse Training Tips And TechniquesHorse training tips, much like general opinions, are something horsemen have no shortage of. So many different techniques and schools of thought exist that it can almost be maddening for those who wish to pick up sound advice for training their own horse. Which technique is correct? Which school of thought is the one I should follow?
The answer is none!
While you can become proficient with a particular training technique, you will really blossom if you remain receptive to a variety of techniques and incorporate those elements of the different schools that blend well with your own personal skills or preferences.
Although we do not advocate following horse training tips or techniques belonging exclusively to one school of thought, we do strongly believe in keeping your focus within one theme: natural horsemanship. If a particular technique goes against our philosophy of gentle horsemanship and creating a bond rather than an adversarial relationship, it will not be included here (at least not in a complimentary fashion).
The Horse-Handler RelationshipThis is the first section in our horse training tips section for good reason… without a solid bond of respect and trust between you and your horse, your efforts are doomed to fail! The articles in this section will focus on the importance of a solid bond and the best way to obtain one.
