When to Begin Training the Young Horse | Monty Roberts

Bailey Czapko's insight:

When to start training horses is very important because young horse aren't fully developed. You can train horses when they aren't "fully developed" but you would have to be careful as for how far you would push them. The most important thing is for young horses knee caps to form or you will have problems with arthritis and stuff when the horse gets older.

A young horse won't be "fully developed" until it's in its early teens. Horses stop growing when they are about 10-15 so you can't wait until they're "fully developed" to start training. Horses need some time when they're young to develop everywhere and then they can grow and be trained well for their discipline.

Discipline of the young horse

Should we discipline the young horse and if so, when?
Bailey Czapko's insight:

Young horses almost always have high spirits and they need some disciplinary action. When riding a young horse that just wants to back up and refuses to go forward, it takes patience and repetitive discipline. You need to keep forcing the horse to go forward and not let it get away with it at all, if it does, it will immediately walk all over you or its rider.

Horse training takes a while. The horse will never be fully "broke" without work that followed. When breaking a horse you should ride it everyday so problems with bucking and rearing because they're hard to correct after they do it.

How to Select and Prepare a Stimulus Mare

How to Select and Prepare a Stimulus Mare | Equine Training (issues) | Scoop.it
A good stimulus mare is invaluable to a breeding facility, one veterinarian says. Here's how to choose one.
Bailey Czapko's insight:

Selecting the right mare for the stallion is a key point in breeding a stallion. When choosing the mare you need to make sure the stallion is attracted to her and the mare is of good stimulus, meaning she is ready to be bred and in good conditions. This method is only used for artificial insemenation.

Selecting a mare is the first step to a good baby. Obviously, everyone wants a good baby. In order to achieve this goal, you must put the stallion and mare together according to discipline. When the baby is ready to be trained, you don't want a baby that is bred for 2 separate disciplines. The mom and dads discipline should be relatively in the same general interest to make it easier for the baby to perfect one discipline rather than be mediocre at multiple.

Horse trainers have to wear a lot of hats nowadays; more than just cowboy hats, hunt caps or even the fancy driving hats. They are accountants, stall cleaners, grain orderers, show clothes advisers, haulers, and even sometimes a mom or dad to their clients, when needed.
Bailey Czapko's insight:

Horse trainers can be in involved with all different types of disciplines. Some trainers train barrel horses, race horses, roping horses, pleasure horses, western riding horses, etc. In order to start a horse, you need to know that basics, no matter what discipline, every horse starts with the basics. Also, horse trainers have to take care of their own bills for their business and clean their own stalls. Horse training is a big responsibility.

Discipline and horses - breaking spirit vs teaching manners. Naughty horse or poor handling?

Bailey Czapko's insight:

When horses behavior becomes danger, it needs fixed immediately. Horses with high spirits will try over and over to walk all over you. Confident/conceited horses need to have behavior corrections as soon as they are recognized because they'll just get worse if you let them get away with the same thing every time.

High spirited horses can be problematic at times because they misbehave at random times and they can be scary sometimes. They get an attitude when they're corrected for something. High spirited horses can be hard to deal with, especially when they're young and high-spirited.

Thoroughbred Yearling Horse - Ground Training - Line Driving - Day 1

A Thoroughbred yearling on her first day of ground training with line driving.
Bailey Czapko's insight:

When training a horse, you don't just throw a saddle on and hop up and hope for the best. Ground driving is a technique that many horse trainers use to start teach the horse directions and stopping and sometimes even backing up. Young horses have a tendency to kick or do stupid stuff when learning so you always want to make sure you use ropes on each side that are long enough so if anything were to happen, the horse wouldn't kick you. Ground driving is an awesome technique and its honestly the quickest way to teach horses how to walk, trot, or even lope in certain directions when directed to do so.

Ground training will help the horse learn its leads when loping which will lead into learning its discipline. Ground training is a big help in understanding ground manners. Research shows that horses that are taught ground training have better manners than horses that aren't worked on the ground much before riding.

Bailey Czapko's insight:

Horses are a great way to help people overcome disablilities and past experiences that may have been tragedies for them. Horses are a way for people to fill a spot in their heart for a friend or a companion and they are very quiet and calm. Horses could serve the purpose of being someones best friend so there should be more therapeudic horseback riding in all areas of the U.S. because I think they are a good way for people to overcome past tragedies or disabilities.

Bailey Czapko's insight:

This is one way to teach a horse to keep their own space. Horses sometimes think they're supposed to be right along side of you and they think they should stand on top of you. Fortunately, horses can be taught ground manners. Ground manners are step number 1 in training horses because they all have issues with being on the ground when they're young.

Halter breaking and ground manners are the most important thing for horse training because that is the foundation to all other things. Halter breaking and ground manners come before brushing and grooming and they have to be perfected before you can do anything with them. I can't stress enough how important this super tiny step is.
