Posts Tagged ‘Paint Horses’

Carla from Florida sent Eunice Rush and Marry Morrow, authors of the just-released KNOW YOU, KNOW YOUR HORSE, this amazing review of their book—check it out!

“I read…and thoroughly enjoyed every page of your book. I feel so much more savvy after learning about my personality, combined with my three horses. I have already used what I learned, and I am sincerely grateful.

“I would have never imagined that I would be a POWERFUL! I was shocked. I always think of myself as being kind of wimpy. I now understand why Moonie and I had such a rough start. Moonie is a THINKER…thus my broken wrist, ribs and front teeth. LOL! After five years of trial and error…we ‘get’each other…and we know how to work together. I love my old girl and she is bombproof. She is my ‘easy keeper’ and I trust her.

Carla on Hearts.

Carla on Hearts.

“My little Paint, Hearts, has been a lot of work for me. Now, I know why! Hearts is a TALKER. I have spent countless hours trying to get her to collect and stand still. The girl needs to move. We had our best ride ever today. She may never be the right horse for me…but, as long as she is with me, I will be a better rider and owner. I now ‘get’ her.

“And now, I have Frank Sinatra. I fell in love with this horse at the barn. He is a three-year-old cremello Quarter Horse. His former owner quit paying board. I got Frank by paying the back board. I had neer been on him…but, I had a feeling. I spent a week in the arena with him. He was cooperative, but I could tell he wasn’t crazy about arena work. I would walk him around the ranch just to build our bond. He did whatever I asked…and I taught him to side-pass in 15 minutes. I knew this would be a good horse for me.

“After only two rides on this guy…I can say that I have found my perfect match! POWERFUL/WORKER…go figure! Now that I know what I have…and I understand who I am…working with my horses is so much more enjoyable.

“This morning I had arranged to ride with a friend from work. He had been on horses, but it had been a few years. I rode Hearts, the Talker…and I put my friend on Frank, the Worker. Perfect ride, thanks to your book! We kept their feet moving at a brisk walk and had a great day. Hearts and Frank make a great trail duo and I look forward to getting them out together soon. I would have never been able to manage these differing horses prior to your book.

“Although all three of my horses are pussycats, they all operate differently. A Thinker, a Talker, and a Worker. I feel so empowered by your book. Thank you so very much for sharing your knowledge. Happy Trails to me!

KnowYouKnowYrHorse250“Your book has changed the way I will communicate with horses for the rest of my life. The fact that I got IMMEDIATE results, means so much to me and the horses. I don’t think I will ever ride in fear again. Amen!”

World famous trainer Lynn Palm on What About Lark

Sand flying. The sound of approaching surf almost drowning the muffled staccato of hooves-on-beach. Bareback and bridleless, your hands buried in your horse’s mane, sun on your skin and wind in your hair–who HASN’T indulged in this riding fantasy?

Although your geographic location may indeed identify surf and beach as purely fantastic, a bridleless romp on horseback that is all about fun and freedom and not at all about hold-on-and-pray-for-your-dear-life is completely within the realm of reality. It all comes down to a little from you (that is, your body control and balance) and a whole lot from that thousand-plus-pound horse of yours (his body control and balance).

World famous horse trainer Lynn Palm (winner of 34 World and Reserve World Championships, and four “Superhorse” titles, among others) maintains that “collection” is the key to getting your horse to be light, balanced, and willing, and ready to take on any riding challenge with you on board. This isn’t just about a headset–this is about changing your horse’s way of going incrementally, and through TOTALLY doable exercises.

Too many of us engage in the push-pull, “kick the horse into the bridle” while sawing his nose down, mistakenly thinking that the result is at all desirable or ideal for the horse. This usually isn’t our fault, as until now collection has been misinterpreted, poorly defined, and badly taught at all levels and in all disciplines. Lynn is striving to change all that through her clinics (catch her at Equine Affaire in Ohio, April 7-10, 2011) and her latest book THE RIDER’S GUIDE TO REAL COLLECTION…on sale this month at the TSB bookstore (along with other great horse training titles–check ’em out HERE).

Lynn performed bridleless at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky, on her gorgeous stallion Rugged Painted Lark:
