Three Lessons For Young Horses Part 1: Teaching Them To Think

The other day I overheard a very smart person (my mother), having a conversation with someone on the three things that she believes are vital in teaching your child to help them to become successful.

These three things are: how to think, how to love, and how to work.

Listening to this, it really resonated with me that I believe these are three things that I make an effort to teach my young horses when I am developing them. Now, some people may say how can you teach a horse to love or to think, but I think it is possible.

The Young Horse World Championships Journey: Part 1

My journey to the FEI World Breeding Jumping Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken, Belgium, with Catania Saflo Z (Minnie) and Carrasca Z (Hank) began at 3:30 a.m., on Saturday, Sept. 12. The horses were to be picked up at 5 a.m., to go to quarantine before flying out and I wanted to make sure they got a mash before leaving.

Hold Tight! Staying On The Overjumper

I ride a lot of young horses, and sometimes you just don't know what you're going to get when they leave the ground! Sometimes they make an effort for a 4' fence when the top rail is half that. 

One question I am always asked is: “How do I stay on when my horses jump so big over the jumps?”

Taylor's Tips: Starting Young Horses

Everyone starts their young horses differently. Some start them as 2-year-olds and some wait until they are 4. Some start them through long-lining and some start them through lunging. Who is to say what the “correct way” is. In my opinion there are multiple correct ways, and every person must find what works for them and the horse.

Could These Young Horse Shows Finals Winners Be Stars In The Future?

Yesterday I wrote about the intent and experience of the Young Horse Shows series and final. As both a rider and a breeder while attending this horse show, I was continuously impressed by the quality of horses being bred and raised here in the United States and the talent they were displaying in the ring.
