You Can’t Blame It On The Horse (All The Time)

You Can’t Blame It On The Horse
(All The Time)

 

Kenny_Scott_and_Horse-Small

It’s common……

A horse won’t do somethin’ and it’s their fault.

Or is it?…

You know, a horse is basically perfect
in every sense.

What I mean is…before we get our hands on ’em,
they can already do what we want them to do.
(for the most part).

They already know how to back up, move
forward, turn, etc.

But when you throw the human in the
equation…look out!

Everything is different.

We think the horse oughta do what
we ask because we know what we want…so why doesn’t
the horse do it?

The lesson is, he “CAN” do it, but
we just haven’t explained what we want and how
we want it done.

That’s basically what training is all about.

First, the horse has to know what you want.

And when you’re sittin’ there kissin’
to ’em, they’re trying to figure out what you want.

To make it clear what you want…
  “Do everything you can
   to set your horse up
   to successfully do what you asked.”
That means if you want him to, say,
lunge to the left then you better give him a big,
convenient opening so he can move that direction.

Make it so danged easy for him to
go to left that he does it.

And when he does, let him do it.

Stop kissing to him so he “clearly”
knows that’s what you wanted.

This is the case whenever you work with a horse.

Early on, horses don’t know their leads, don’t know how
to balance under you, so it’s up to us to stay centered
and squared so they can do their job.

This is one of the points Kenny Scott
reveals in his DVD about controlling
all four corners of your horse.

We must remember that if the horse didn’t
do right,…whose fault was it?

Did we explain it well enough?

Does he really know what you’re asking?

Did you get in his way?

Who’s to blame here?

Our human egos get in the way and fool
us into believing the horse is dumb.

“He should know that!”, we angrily
say to ourselves.

But…should he?

If it was explained to him day after day through repetition…
then yes!, he should know it as long as he’s been doing it.

Frankly, if your horse isn’t doing something,
it’s high time we look at ourselves.

I’m gonna tell you something you may
not wanna hear. And that is this.

If your horse is doing something you
don’t want him doing, or doesn’t do
something you want him to do…

“The First Place To Look
to Correct The Problem Is Yourself.”
Here’s a for instance.

I got an email from a subscriber who
said her new horse was “great for the first 2 weeks.”

Slowly and steadily he became pushy
and pinned ears at her, and so on.

After checking into it, this horse
owner was not taking the leadership role.

She did a few things to kill her position as her
horse’s boss and now the horse was boss.

Unfortunately, this horse owner should
have read up on her subject and learned
as much as she could.

Now, I ain’t sayin’ a horse’s problem is
always the owner’s fault.

I’m just sayin’ that’s the first place
to look to correct the problem.
