Ingrid Klimke on starting work with foals

In the past, coaches often took horses into training, starting with the foal. While the foal grew and developed, he was taught the basic rules, which subsequently greatly facilitated the start of work under the saddle. Nowadays, most prefer to buy three and four year old already hackneyed horses. At the same time, the buyer often has no idea what happened to this horse before the purchase, as she worked at a young age before the ride. Taking care of a young horse, you will learn not only how to feed and care for her, but also how to approach her training in the future. Continue reading

We teach the horse to pass through narrow spaces.

Horses are claustrophobic in nature and when they are turned on or sent to a narrow space, they can start to panic. The “sending out” exercise will become a convenient tool that will help your horse overcome the fear of narrow spaces, as well as other “creepy” objects. With the help of this exercise, I teach horses to get into a horse transport. This exercise will also come in handy if your horse resists and struggles with a halter that puts pressure on the area behind the ears, prompting it to lower its head. Continue reading

A few words about horse memory and approaches to training

“The horse is stupid, but memorable,” wrote James Phyllis. I do not agree with the thesis about horse stupidity: years of communication and interaction with this animal taught me to think differently. Of course, like other living creatures, the intellect of horses individually varies depending on a variety of factors (including breed, gender, age and life experience of a particular horse). But, as for memory, you can’t argue with Phyllis. Once having learned something, especially at a young age, a horse remembers this for a lifetime. In the same way, horses remember both people and kinsmen with whom they once were together – not only numerous life stories testify to this, but also modern research by scholars of ethologists.
