Horse Problems

Almost every day someone contacts me about a "problem horse." Often such letters come from someone who had been warned by someone else about ridding themselves of "that dangerous horse" or something similarly worded.

The Problem Horse Letters links below and on my blog come from the letters sent to me by people who have had baffling horse problems that they (and everyone they know), simply could not solve.

Do you have a similar horse problem? Look over the list of problem horse letters below and on the blog. Select any one of them to see if there's a solution to your own horse training problem!

Several decades of working with innumerable problem horses has given me a wealth of experience that I am delighted to share with horse owners. It is for this very reason that I created a "Problem Solving Series" of videos to provide answers to the most vexing of horse training problems. Still, phone and email consulting consume a good part of my day. Throughout this growing list of horse problem horse letters you may well find the answers to your most difficult challenge if not, let me hear from you and I'll do my best to help you out!

Remember: Make the right thing easy and comfortable for the horse. Conversely, you must make the wrong thing difficult and perhaps even uncomfortable. Most importantly, have your plan and "ammunition" ready. You must react immediately when the unwanted behavior surfaces. If the horse hits the "brick wall" several times, he'll probably stop trying. Above all, be fair!
