Have you ever given the right cue, but your horse still didn’t respond?

If you’ve ever had this happen, then you know that communicating with a horse involves more than just the right position and the right cues…

To be effective, confident riders, we need to know how horses learn, so that we can better communicate what we want them to do.

Watch the video below to discover how horse’s learn and how understanding this can help you decode your horse’s behavior.

  1. Dear Callie,
    I enjoy you videos and on-line courses greatly.
    I have a question about training a young horse the canter signal. How do you usually go about teaching that with a novice horse?
    All the best

  2. Hi Callie. Love your videos, watch that all the time, I am a novice ( an older aged novice). Just wandering in some of the videos the horses have a round white bit, is thus rubber , is it more gentler than an average snaffle?

    1. The ‘harshness’ of a bit is really dependent on the rider’s hands but generally yes it is a softer bit!

  3. Hi Callie thank you for making these videos, I have a question my horse is reluctant to lift her hooves and she will back twards other horses to threaten to kick, she is 12 years old and the previous owner said she never kicked him I get the feeling sometimes that she is threatening other horses so she can protect me or only have my attention???? Mary

    1. Hi Mary! Thanks for your questions. For the not wanted to lift her hooves I would recommend watching this video with a horse named Zelli who had never had her feet handled before coming to our farm! As far as possibly kicking the other horses, is it in a riding setting or in the barn? How close are they allowed to get to her?

  4. I recently have a new horse who is 14 yo & who I ‘ve had for a month now . I decided to revisit your videos to refresh & to become more aware of my new horse during our “get to know you” phase. What I do notice as far as a reward is he loves the verbal “good boy” and I pat his neck gently when he does what I ask. No matter what we are doing on the ground or in the saddle I can see his face light up when he is verbally rewarded. Thank you for your videos! I love learning with you!
