Seven years of difference. above is the first time i rode her when she was at our home, the picture down is from yesterday. at the upper picture tarissa was 5 year old. she was just a few months ridden. i had no control, she would run around like crazy, scared. right canter was almost impossible. she was unbalanced and not using her body good at all. i was a young girl, 10 years old and also scared.
now, 7 years later, we trust eachother. i have given her my trust, and she has given it back to me. we have done many things i would never have imagined we could do when i just had her. the first few years were hard and difficult, lots of running, no trust in eachother. then we started doing tricktraining, and later liberty. that has changed literally everything. tarissa slowly started coming out of her shelp, opening up to me. showing her real character that she didn't dare to show earlier, because she was taught not to do so. now she is a funny pony with character. she is lot happier, her eyes are sparkling and she is super relaxed. (well most of the time😅). our riding has improved lots. tarissa is using her body way better and i'm in control (most of the times🤣), altough i don't really care much about that anymore, probably because i trust her now, so i don't feel the need to have her 'in control'. we can do everything now, dressage and jumping, but also riding completely tackless. riding with only a neckrope in big meadows, jumping tackless, etc. but the thing i enjoy most are the moments were we are just goofing around like idiots.💁🏼‍♀️
so to all of you, don't give up if it's being hard with your horse, the journey you are going to make is worth it.❤

*how to food *

when i first met jonny i noticed something rather comical - he would chew on his owners clothes, look through them, pull her hands - not aggressively but defenitely in search of treats. it was a great indicator to me that she used treats but gave them to jonny "out of nowhere" and it was easier to approach her and ask if she would consider food rewards used in his training - "yep he loves carrots" she said. bingo! i had go ahead with food rewards.
the great thing is that when i finally did introduce the food rewards i knew how to start the process safely and how to teach him manners. i spent two weeks researching all material i could find before i actually started with psitive reinforcement. sadly alot of people don't do that prior research and find the use of food either as rewards or just an occasional treat quite stressful with horses turning into cookie monsters as soon as they realise that the human has something yummy on them. some horses seem very aroused and stressed around food but here is the thing - the way the horses are behaving around the food only represents their reinforcement history. you're always training even when you think you aren't, you're always creating a reinforcement history. and you can surely positively reinforce horses for the "bad" behaviour just by giving them "treats". this is how you don't stop the nagging behaviour: do not punish your horse when he's being a little cookie monster. punishment never teaches a behaviour that you want to see - it only temporary stops the behaviour as it's happening- so your horse might stop searching your clothes after his head been pushed away but i guarantee you that the next time you have food on you exactly the same or even more agressive cookie monster will appear.
this is what you should do: to introduce /re train taking food rewards find something that can work as a physical barrier between you and your horse. this in professional terms is called protective contact. protective contact doesn't have to be so much protecting you but more your horse. protective contact is there to stop you from using punishment 👇

Billede fra i dag, desuden det eneste tidspunkt hvor jeg havde tov i hende (bortset fra striglning ofc)
-
-
jeg red ikke i dag, fordi jeg tænkte det er godt også at have dage hvor man ikke rider🙈
-
tilgængæld lavede vi en masse hms og hun var bare virkelig sød og dygtig. hun er virkelig begyndt at forstå mine signaler og prøver sig hele tiden frem.
-
-
hun bakkede flere gange kun ved knips, og retningsskift uden tov er hun også blevet mega god til!! -
-
håber at få noget video lørdag hvis @emmay5_ skal med derop 🙈🎉 -
så må i bare have en god aften ✨

Every new friend is a new adventure .. a start of more memories ♥️ .
.
🖤 b l a c k & w h i t e 🖤.

about yesterday .
.
b u m b a & c a n d e l a .
.
this candela, she is rescued.
she is a spanish mare from 18/19 yrs old.
when she came to the ranch some months ago she was the skiniest thing i had ever 😱seen.
she is still very thin but is looking better by the day.
and she was so happy when she finally got this scratching moment with bumba.
.

bumba needed some time because he was not much of an angel with her in the beginning , neither was maggiolina ... .
she was all jealous that this mare was around bumba & bumba for sure being very protective of maggiolina... .
but well , new experiences, feelings & friends...
and a very very happy candela 💜.
. .
the complete movie is now on my igtv channel , where you can see bumba’s other 😈face haha... he’s in general not so good with other horses as he is extremely dominant and protective when it comes to his mare maggiolina.
well look and see... would loooove to hear what you think tho ❤️..

This is their bed.❤️ my horses live in a herd at @stalljore . it really is pony-paradise! they live outside all year around, day and night,on a big pasture. they have two shelters, and two feeding stations. amina loves this shelter! of all the horses in our herd, she might be the one who spends the most time in there. she loves it! today @jeanettjore and i made their bed. they were so happy to get a fresh new bed to relax in 😍❤️

✨А вот и обещанный видеоролик🤩
Уложиться в формат 1 минуты не вышло, так что вот вам в двух частях 💥
__
Наша воскресная импровизированная тренировка: немного прыжков, немного гимнастики и КУЧА удовольствия от процесса😍 Жужа такие тренировки любит даже больше, чем я😂
__
По мере того, как ролик подходит к концу, можно заметить, как на улице темнеет 🙈😄 летом снимать куда проще☀️😪

Ставь ❤️ и задавай вопросы💬 это очень мотивирует 😉

What is your goal? so many times, we go to the barn with agendas: accomplish this, train our horse to do that. but if our goal is connection and progress in communication, we can achieve our long-term agendas if we let our horse show us what they are ready for. happy monday friends! what is your horse teaching you these days? . . . #horseblogger #horsebloggers #horseblog #equestrianblogger #equestrianbloggers #libertyhorsemanship #naturalhorsemanshiptraining #naturalhorsemanship #philippekarl #ecoledelegerete #ecoledelegérèté #halfarab #halfsaddlebred #horsecommunication #instahorsecommunity #equestriancommunity #groundtraining #lungeline

If he is feeling good today, we will be focussing on tricks!
he's been offering paw, leg, and his attempt at a bow as of recent.
so i am going to try and see if we can relearn to pick things up. -

I know you can't see it well in this photo, but zoom actually jumped!
those of you that have been following me for a while know zoom struggles deeply with the idea of jumping.
so you can imagine my surprise when yesterday he did the smallest of jumps over a ground pole 😂

Because it was split half and half between videos and photos i will be posting both!
in this particular video i was asking for upward, and forward momentum.
zoom struggles with engaging his hind end, so these small exercises are getting him to slowly start using them. -

Talentiertes mustangfohlen

talented mustang foal

während des transportes der mustang mutter aus der wildnis zur auffangstation war sie schon schwanger. der kleine wurde dann auf einem guten hof geboren. beiden geht es super, sie werden zusammen von horsewoman nicolette birnie @wildtowilling durch natural horsemanship trainiert und herzlich verpflegt.
