Re: [RC] link to McNabb video - heidi larson

I saw Ken do this at a horse expo a few years ago, a kiger
mustang, he was broke to ride.  Ken did lay him down, but
it didn't look too simple on that particular horse.  Ken
was sweating hard and parts of his clinic looked like it
might be dangerous for the average person who doesn't have
his experience.  I don't know if I'd try it after seeing
him in person.

Here's that link to Ken's video on teaching horses to lay


An Issue of Trust
Teaching Your Horse to Lay Down

This is the greatest exercise Ken has ever taught. Horses
by nature  
are a fright and flight animal. Watch a herd of horses
and you will  
notice that there is one horse always responsible for the
situations. When he lifts his head to check a new noise
the others  
will lift an ear. If he takes off, the rest of the herd
will follow.  
When resting you will always see a few horses left
standing, while  
some lay down. The ones left standing are again
responsible for the  
herd. When a horse lays down on cue he is trusting us to
protect him  
from danger and life threatening situations. He is
trusting you with  
his life. This has an amazing impact on your relationship
with your  
horse. If we could learn from them as much as they learn
from us and  
lay our life down for our Master, we could change our
lifes forever.

Ken teaches simple and practical steps, building a solid
for this exercise. You will watch him teach a horse that
has never  
previously laid down. As he takes you through each step
you will  
learn to practice each lesson until your horse responds
smoothly and  
quietly. Beau, Ken's paint horse stallion, is used to
teach you the  
advanced cues for teaching your horse to lay down from
the saddle.  
Ken shares exactly what you need to know when riding your
horse from  
the ground up.

Your relationship with your horse will never be the same.
It could  
change your life!
