Sounds like your hours is disrespectful. I could write you a novel on why I think so, but will refer you to Clinton Anderson’s Down Under Horsemanship website instead.
See if you can find an article or video with the subject “Philosophy” or something related. You will not be disappointed. Many bookstores carry his book.
I am the proud owner of a 10 year old gelding that the previous owners where going to destroy. He was completely out of control.
It’s a long story, but something possessed me to purchase this creature about 18 months ago. I hadn’t owned a horse in 30 years. A trainer at the stable where he was introduced us both to “The Method”.
My “Bronco Billy” is now a personable friend. He is obedient, trustworthy and a pleasure to be around. Every time I take him somewhere, every one comments what a wonderful citizen he is.
The Method is more about being a disciplined and consistent horseman than it is about training horses. Clinton breaks it down step by step.
Get to one of his Walk About Tours. You won’t believe your eyes.
Back in the saddle again.
