THANKS for the great posts written to me after I wrote in I was injured
and bored! You'all are great! My arm is healing well and I recieved a
good dose of common sense ... "listen to your inner voice....."
I read mules are unforgiving while horses forgive. So all horse
trainers are not mule trainers. Anyone else heard this?
flexible trailer ties (or inner tubes)...now I know what was meant by
using inner tubes. I dont use the flexible trailer ties inside my
trailer as if the horse pulls back hard enough he can stretch it where
his hind feet are out the door and could slip a leg under the trailer
and break a leg. Mystery stretched it out the back of the trailer when
I was first training him...very scarey. The key is training properly
where they do not feel trapped and have cause to pull back. John Lyons
techniques solved this problem for me.
happy and safe riding to all,
Kimberly (&Mystery the Morab.....still on vacation until end of
