Do you break your own horses or send them to a trainer? Is there a style of training you prefer?
Some people break their own horses because they want them trained in a specific style. There are some people that like horses that are very leggy and respond to body language when riding (that's me), while others prefer a reining horse even if they're not using them for shows. Some do a lot of ground work while others believe in just getting on and breaking the horses spirit. Which do you prefer and why?
I prefer a gentle hand giving the horse a chance to know and learn what you are asking them to do.
Hi Kevin I agree with you 100% I think ground work and a sense of trust between the horse and rider are crucial when it comes to training and thanks for pointing that out. If a horse doesn't know what you want him to do it only leads to confusion.
I prefer the term training instead of breaking. Breaking sounds like you're breaking the horse's spirit. That's cruel. I like to train my own horses. I like Buck Brannaman's method of befriending and training a horse.
