HOME OF THE FOUNDATION EDUCATION TRAINING PROGRAM...

"WE PUT A FOUNDATION EDUCATION ON EVERY HORSE WE TRAIN!"

In developing a mental connection with your horse, we are waking up the horses mind and getting them thinking and learning with us.


"Shiloh"

Grey/Appaloosa Mustang Mare - Nampa, Idaho

THIS MARE IS OUT OF THE "CHALLIS" HERD


Shiloh getting her first look around the trail course...

scary logs quickly become, let's graze...            and where's my buddy?        

 

              she crosses this one                                               then strays off course a bit

  

better...

 

waiting patiently for Shiloh to keep coming...

Good girl!

steps up on the ground bridge

and crosses fine, coming off grazing comes to her mind again :-)

 

here's the block...

and she mounts up... but feels edgy up there so not asked to stay too long

 

and she comes down nicely, and in control of herself

You're kidding, right?

trying...

ok, how's this?

reassurance...

 

stepping up the rest of the way

 

steppin down...                                  grazing comes to mind           

  

there...    she's off the tire    :-)

Shiloh doesn't know how to send/direction change...so Katie pushes her eye away giving direction...

  

there, better...

  

good girl...                                            reward

 

grooming...

 

the blanket...

  

  

 

the surcingle...

  

                                                              needs lengthened     :-)

  

not my fault!!!                                              need help?    

 

 

 

 

tried sending in the open, but she needed to go back to the roundpen for guidance...

  

good...

 

asking to be done...

saddling...

  

pull her back forward                                              good girl                                             back to adjustments

  

  

saddle patting...

rope tossing...

  

  

good girl...

done...

The stirrup slap...

bridling her is improving...

  

 

flexing...

  

Looks like Shiloh knows whats coming...

Stepping up on Shiloh...

  

Katie tries to reassure her...

 

  

  

  

whoa...

 

Katie continues to try and reassure Shiloh...

move her feet some more...and try to control her nervous speed...

 

what Shiloh seems to be really afraid of is being ridden...

  

her fear gets the best of her, and she takes off, then spins to the other direction...

  

  

  

  

  

Katie couldn't safely dismount from this ride, I had to stop photos and get ahold of Shiloh who's anxiety was building up...

  

Video of her "bursting away"

Shiloh has alot of energy to burn, and worked herself harder than she was asked

      Shiloh missed her cue...                         now she's paying attention...                    and makes the direction change...

  

setting her up for another direction change,      she needs to control her speed                    thats better                              

  

changing her direction often, causes her to pay attention and focus on your body language

  

introducing her to new stimuli, worried at first                                                              she learns to relax and plants her feet

  

she's relaxed with it bumping her everywhere while she's standing still

now she can wear it and it will rythymically tap her side as she goes

here's her burst of speed Katie got to ride when her legs were on her

 

there she stops to think, and relax

       asked to walk on, she goes too fast                   so she's asked to change her direction to cause her to think

                        

and asking again, she doesn't follow through

 

now she's moving her feet again, but she wasn't asked to go this fast (just a walk is wanted)

have to change her mind (direction) again

now shes looking for answers...and she worked up a sweat in the process

now she can have the other "leg"....

  

and is walking out nicely

a warmer day...she does very well

introduction to long lines...

 

she does a little power take-off

 

gradually putting the line over her butt                   she gets worried for few steps                                

  

direction change is made in a hurry...

 

there, better control of her nervous energy, and even stepped right on the feed bag...

  

whoa...

and turn around...this was a really GOOD turn around for her for self control...

  

it has taken alot of various groundwork methods for her to reduce her fear of things behind her...she really needed these lessons

we'll try open arena now...

a little trouble going through the gate...she wants to face Katie, as being driven she worries about whats behind her
whats behind her is the spook we're trying to reduce her fears of, as it's what translates to her spook under saddle..
since riding you are "behind" her...

  

  

 

she spins to face up again      and again

  

 

she walks out, but you can see she is leaning to keep an eye on Katie, who is just walking with her
this is a valuable lesson for Shiloh

 

  



ooops, she turns and faces up...

  

free time - playing...

  

  

 

 

  

  

flex right, good                      flex left, good

 

Shiloh checkin out the can...

mounted up, she is ancy...must flex for control

 

there...

Shiloh will require an experienced rider to keep up with her...

Shiloh has the same scoot n spin problem riding inside or outside, this may come at any moment, and you must be well seated...

  

  



A windy ride...
