Clip two from Jay O’Jay’s colt starting video entitled Journey to Connection from his series of Horse Training DVD Videos.
The journey begins with Jay outside the round pen and with an unbroken 3-year-old filly inside. Jay explains how the round pen is the ideal venue to communicate, show leadership and form a connection with your horse. Jay demonstrates when and how to first enter the round pen. Then, as Jay starts to establish himself as the “dominant horse of the herd”, he begins the steps to cause and control movement. Using a combination of verbal cues and body movement, Jay continues working with the horse to reinforce the movement, change the filly’s direction, and control her speed.

    My horse sometimes runs me into trees. Is that how she shows me she doesn’t like me?how do I stop her from doing that.

    I have a very stubborn mare. She is fine when you saddle her and mount her but i guess you could say she is part barn sour and part Balker. She wants to go where she wants to and will either stop completely and back up, sometimes with a small rear or buck and then she wont go forward! i smack her butt, kick her even, i tried a crop but nothing is working… very frustrating, any advice??? :/

    Didn’t u listen??? You want to establish leadership and trust. You don’t need a lungeline for that. You use body language and voice…. good horsemen don’t need either saddle nor bridle.

    Use a lunge line
    Type in ( lunging a horse) on youtube. Pretty simple…

    I have been riding for about 9 years and i bought this horse, Ace. He was so poorly handled that we had to detrain him of bucking -well they were more like bunny hops. And he recently has been very aganist me (or anyone) mounting him. he fine when we ride though. when i try to mount him i have to bring the sturip up to his front shoulder or else he will kick out at me. Its just an accident waiting 2 happen, his ears are always pinned back when i mount. Is there any advice that u could give me?TY

    You don’t show your body language when you ask for a change in direction… the video zooms in on the horse. How exactly are you positioning yourself, shoulders etc. when you ask for the inside turn? Thanks. Pretty horse!
