I have had problems with my balance my whole life. My faulty balance is part of the reason that I never really learned how to jump well.

When I learned I had MS I finally realized why I was unsuccessful in attaining the highest levels of horsemanship. They all require perfect balance. This lack of balance is also why I… Continue

A year or so back I was searching the Web for unusual horsie sites and I ran into horsetrainingresources.com, run by Charlie Hicks. Though most of the stuff on this site is for the Western rider (reining emphasis) and is based on older American horse training, I signed up for his e-mails since I am willing to learn from any source. I am VERY GLAD I did… Continue

Do you know that saying “It is like trying to fit a square peg in to a round hole?” Well sometimes we horse owners do that to our horses. We try to force our horse to do something that it doesn’t like to do. Let me give you an example.
I have been showing Valerie for about two years now in Class A Arab horse shows. All the classes I enter in are strictly western–western pleasure, trail, and… Continue

Hello and greetings to everyone from Riversong Ranch in Alberta. I’m sitting here in my office reading over a recent chat I found on Barnmice about the merits – pros or cons – of Natural Horsemanship. And I must say that I am truly encouraged by most of the comments I read that seemingly indicate that now that the natural horsemanship “revolution” is over that perhaps now the evolution of natural horsemanship into “supernatural horsemanship” will begin.
Despite all the marketing hype… Continue
