THE POWER OF THE ONE REIN STOP

The Power of the One Rein Stop is awesome and yet little known or used around the World. Do you like broken Bones? I don’t, which is why I am hot on this subject!!  Horses can only fall over if they don’t have a ‘Lateral Mouth’   https://horseproblems.com.au/product-category/saddlery-shop-by-horseproblems/re-mouthing-the-horse/ Are You one of the Millions who get on suspect Horses WITHOUT MOUTHS and without Rein Control Australian Horsemanship style???? Are You going to be one of these statistics????? read ‘Bolting Horse’ The Power of the “One Rein Stop” is rarely taught and therefore rarely understood. I cannot recommend your understanding of this subject highly [...]

REIN CONTACT. SOFT HANDS OR NOT?

I often get asked about light hands when referring to the rein control of horses.  This has to the most confused subject in the Horse Industry, the one subject that is largely kept back from pupils imho and the one that causes the most failed training scenarios of all. Video, Trainers, Coaches and experts everywhere, are most often very politically correct these days and will rarely let the plebs’ see what happens in the ‘real world’, how they themselves ride (behind closed doors) and why those at the top have so much success.   Mouths range from an ounce to [...]

TESTING THE LATERAL MOUTH OF YOUR HORSE

Testing the Lateral Mouth of all Horses that I work on, is the reason I am still able to ride rough Horses at my age, is because of this Mouthing system and the One Rein Stop. Trust me Folks, don’t listen to anyone who says “Ride Him through it!”……We had one Bucked off this Week! Go to the Round Pen. Install a good quality Roller and have a bridle with an FM Bit fitted. Clip your lunge rein through the side D-Ring of the Roller and onto the bit. Without warning, haul the horse to a ‘One Rein Stop’ Use at least 20 kilo [...]

WHY MOUTHS DETERIORATE

Why Mouths deteriorate on Horses. What are the reasons for the mouths of horses to progressively deteriorate after being handed over to the owner by the ‘Breaker’? They almost always do, some more than others and some, totally. Lets say the mouth of the horse is finished at a 9-10 when it is handed back to the owner. From that day forward, unless the owner is a professional rider, the mouth of that horse will diminish for various reasons and end anywhere between zero and about 6.5. I rarely meet one over that mark. So what are the causes of this? Having [...]

LONG REINING AND MOUTH DAMAGE

Long reining and mouth damage, means outside the Round Pen, wandering around the Property. A process that I describe as a Trainer getting a ‘warm inner glow’ that the Horse can be stopped, before mount up 🙂 There are many accidents with this system and once a Horse gallops off with the Reins flapping behind the Legs, few can fix them. I have had many through here! I have two points that I would like to make about the use of ‘Long Reins” in the breaking in ( starting) process of the young horse. That of the hundreds of previously long [...]

THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY SIDE REINS WITH THE HORSE

The damage done by side reins
The damage caused by side reins with the Horse occurs in all Horses BELOW established Elementary Standard. After that, it matters not for they know about ‘Collection’ A LETTER (25,000 and counting) Hi I am hoping that you can help me. I have a lovely little Arabian who has been under saddle for 12 months he is rising 5. His natural head carriage is quite arched. He works lovely under saddle but has the tendency to over bend. Everyone has said take up the contact and push him forward, problem being he is forward and the more you push the [...]

Don’t Mouth The Horse If You Haven’t Done The Teeth

Don’t Mouth your Horse if You haven’t done the Teeth. It is unkind You cannot successfully start or break in a Horse if the Teeth aren’t in top shape. If you try, you will NEVER get a top Mouth due to the pain attached to the Mouthing process and the learned resistance taught. Horses do not trust the Bit or the hands of a Rider if they are hurting. CHECKING TEETH There is no point in putting the hand up the side of the jaw and having a feel of the front half of the Teeth. No point at all. Horse Dentists and Vet’s often [...]

Upside Down Neck In The Horse

Conformation The Personality Human leading or Riding habits often the latter……… This is one of the worst examples of a man made ‘Upside Down Neck’ on a horse and if you look at the tools of torture in this horse’s mouth, a number of things should become very evident to you. Poor Boy, lovely Horse though. If this photo doesn’t bring home to you that the bigger the bit the bigger the damage then I don’t know what will. This idiot has still got very little control over this poor horse. What does he put in next…a chain saw?? An [...]

Remember…..”No Leg Yield – no Dressage” I have [...]

Resistance In The Mouth Of The Horse

There are many reasons why Horses are resistant to the Bit but I will also rank them in order of the reason for cause. The most prolific at the top. As I write, I shall take the occasional Photo out of the window of the F-Truck :) Possibly Teeth Conformation The ability to ‘collect’ is directly influenced by the design of the Body and as such, the majority of Horses don’t suit the ‘English Disciplines’. Therefore, they have to resist….for they just can’t do it. Veterinary issues with the Horse In my experience, over 50% of Horses are unsound in some [...]
