Upside Down Neck in the Horse

Upside down in the Horse is can be caused by a number of things. They are:   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.

The Great Debate – ‘Starter’ on the Bit or not?

Go here for the Video   THE MOST CRUCIAL THING I HAVE LEARNT “We should only ever ride a GREEN HORSE, “On the Bit and Round’ or on a complete ‘Pleasure Rein’ THERE ARE NO IN BETWEENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”   Historically, due to the fact that Breakers were of the Western or Stock Horse influence, the instruction to the owner upon picking up the newly broken in horse was often, “There ya go, stay off his mouth for 6 months and you’ll be right” I think I may be partly responsible for the debate that I see raging of late, on Forums […]

THE CAUSE & FIX OF THE ‘REIN SNATCHER’

        These horses frustrate the hell out of me and no doubt the rider’s aboard them, but we can never blame the Horse. Why does it happen and how can we fix it? It isn’t easy.   The term ‘Resistance‘ sure describes this habit but what causes it?  There are all sorts of forms of resistance and this is yet another one. When the young horse is broken in, hopefully it knows not to be resistant and only gradually, due to the inexperience of riders’ does it learn the various forms of it. The more I think […]
