How to make a horse a friend. One cowboy's partnership with horses

  • How to make a horse a friend. One cowboys partnership with horses


    Jimmy Anderson, a cowboy and colt-starting champion, says that this meeting of minds between humans and horses is key. “Horses are really amazing at how much they will be a partner. They try a crazy amount, and I want to try that same amount back for them.” #TheNatureOfThings #Equus

    We know that horses are social creatures and recent research shows that they use up to 17 different facial expressions to communicate with each other. We’ve also discovered that they’re able to interpret the expressions in our faces, which enables them to form bonds with humans.

    Anderson doesn’t believe in breaking horses; instead he “starts” them. In Equus: Story of The Horse, we see Anderson work his magic with Shiver, an “unbroke” two-year-old colt. Within a single morning, Anderson puts a saddle on Shiver, climbs on without any bucking, and takes him for a ride.

  • Training a Horse to be a Cowboys Partner


    GREAT GIFT! To Order FULL DVD for $12:

    Frank Lindley, the horse trainer for the J & J Cattle Co. of Big Lake, Texas, has been a cowboy at heart since he was seven years old. Born and raised outside of Mertzon, Texas, he started working with colts at the age of nine. He has roped all his life and has worked in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and Montana plus rodeo'ing all over the United States. He trained horses for the public before working for Johnny Ferguson as the main horse trainer for the J & J Cattle Company.

    When asked when he will be too old to break and train colts, he replied, When I get too old to climb the fence to get in the saddle. I would teach the horse to handle a mount that way.

    Showing the love of his job, Frank summed it up by saying, You can't imagine how I feel after riding a colt for the first time. A relationship has started between the horse and myself. It's like writing a book. Every colt is like beginning a new chapter. My life is filled with chapters of different horses.

    We have recently had a couple of people ask for advice on what to look for when buying a horse. In this video, Pat addresses this subject by using one of the recently arrived Baja horses to demonstrate what a basic sale video would look like or what a person representing a horse should be willing to show a prospective buyer. The basic things we want to see in any horse we look at is: catching, picking up feet, saddling, bridling, mounting, and riding off at all three gaits, outside an arena and on a loose rein.

  • Cowboy Dressage with Eitan Beth-Halachmy, Control


    Why would you want more control in your horse? Many horse owners could answer that question with many, many reasons. Eitan Beth-Halachmy explains the benefits of control very clearly and with some suggestions and benefits that might not be commonly understood. Eitan explains that “control” of a horse isn’t limited to dressage riders; it’s an everyday practice for all horse owners and riders. Control can be worked on going from the barn to the trail, from the trail to the creek ... in any and all riding situations. Control can be defined as a better way to ride and it makes handling distractions easier. Control also allows the rider to accomplish maneuvers that the horse can naturally do by himself and while being ridden but only when the rider cues him. Control like so many things, comes from an understanding of footfall and will ultimately give you and your horse the skills to do more of the many things you want to do together.

    This series is presented by and if you just can't wait for our new Friday horse training series to publish, you can watch Eitan's entire series at

  • The One Rein Stop, Answers to Some Questions, and Cowboy Etiquette Pt 1


    The One Rein Stop, known as doubling in the cowboy world, is a fundamental tool that everyone needs to have on their horse. It's the emergency brake the colts need to learn prior to being ridden outside. And it's a life saver for older horses that are having problems with jigging or selling out. In this video, Pat demonstrates how it's done in the Missing Link Snaffle and the rope halter. As always, there's a story or two about grazing and hanging horses. And Pat starts to address some of the etiquette and manners that every young man and woman dreaming about cowboying should know. Thank you for watching! We appreciate everyone's support!

  • Horses That Push Into You On The Ground


    When solving behavioural issues with horses, you have a number of options available to you. One is to correct the behaviour, but another is to allow the horse to do it, and make the outcome that the horse is trying to achieve become difficult. This is one of the ways of using making the wrong thing hard and the right thing easy. The word hard doesn't mean your put pressure on them like many people think, it means it makes the wrong thing difficult for them to achieve.

    In this video I show a large Fresian who's intended outcome is to push into me. By electing not to engage in that behaviour, there ends up being no winner or loser, just two parties who come to an agreement.

    The most important part of this video, however, is not about the technique. It's about your inner energy and body language while doing it. As you will see in the video, you have to calmly elect not to engage with them, but you cannot be defensive, and try to prevent them from pushing into you, nor can you be fearful, and shrink away from them. Doing either of those would not make this exercise work.

    This is an exercise of non-judgementalism, you cannot judge what the horse is doing or it will affect your energy and affect the outcome. You can't be scared or frustrated, but instead, just be present and respond to what it is happening. It's definitely of the harder skills for many people to learn, as it goes against our nature, but it is a key element to working well with horses.Warwick shows you a simple, yet effective exercise you can do with a horse that tends to push into you on the ground .

  • Suburban Cowboys Electric Horse Turns Heads in New Jersey


    You can take the cowboy out of Texas, but you can't take the Texas out of a cowboy. Just ask the New Jersey man who rides around on a motorized horse. This suburban cowboy showed Fox 5 his unusual ride and explained how it works.

    I literally stop traffic, said Steve Bacque, a rodeo cowboy originally from Texas who now lives in Cranford, New Jersey.

    The self-proclaimed Crazy Cranford Cowboy said his wife told him he can't have a real horse.

    The key word was 'real,' he said. She didn't say I couldn't make one.

    Steve cruises around town on his trusty steed and has become quite the hit on social media. He said he gets calls from all over the world from people asking where they can buy such a horse.

    Steve's electric horse can travel up to 40 mph. It runs on a golf cart motor powered by four batteries. So what's the horse's name? Charger, of course, because he requires charging.

    Steve and a friend in Austin, Texas, built Charger. His friend owns a business that has an entire fleet of motorized horses and bulls used for kids' parties and corporate events.

He was at an auction to become rodeo stock but didn't make the cut and was going to end up in slaughter. His new owner bought him and quarantined him until the Academy. She made sure he wasn't bucking from pain, it was 100% behavioral. Cowboy has made a complete change from going through the MN Horse Training Academy. Look at what he does now!
