How We Met

A man thought he was much younger than what he was and was going to put some training into him but later found out that he was much older, so he gave him (yes I said gave him) to me. He is my first horse..

Hey Argos here
Boy has it been an adventure this year first I had to save my herd from a neighbors crazy stallion. He tore our fence down and attacked us but I tried with all my mite to keep him away and ended up pretty battered myself. I saved them though only 7 out of 23 of us got attacked me the worst. Then I was excepted into the Sheriff's Posse and we went on a practice search and rescue I was nervous at first but soon found out that I like trail rides and like to look for missing people. Then in June I went to a horse show and trotted on my own without other horses around boy was Felicia happy we didn't do great but we had fun. So now we are looking for a new riding instructor and hopefully we can get a few lessons in before winter hits.

Bags....
Have you ever thought of clicker training him to overcome the bag fear? Google "clicker training" and you'll find lots of info as it's used for horses, dogs, dolphins, and even cats! It's a method that uses praise (not punishment) and allows the horse to slowly, step-by-step, get better and better about different things. I recently desensitized a horse to plastic shopping bags, and then garbage bags, and then a tarp all over his body! w/this method. If you're interested, let me know and I will happily walk you through it step by step to get you started and give you an idea of what it's all about. It's a great way for the horse to build confidence (and not fear of being punished) and for the two of you to build trust as you'll be the one slowly exposing him to this scary thing. Let me know if you're interested :) Always happy to help... *

Baggy Situation!
My horse is absolutely terrified of bags. I don't know his past very well (all I know is that he was an ex-harnesss racer), but I think he may have had a bad experience with them in past because he has no other fear but that. I have tried many things for a number of years now and I am running out of solutions. I have tried lunging him around the bag, I've tried riding him around the bag, and I've even tried placing it out in the field with him, but he has yet to make any progress. If any one has any advice please write to me. Thanks. -Ana

Come visit me, Willy, Jake, Ana's dream horse- Night at the Roxberry & TimTam.
