GREAT clinic today. I had a great time meeting everyone and working with you and your horses. Every single rider and horse improved throughout the day.

*sleepy ranch horse* • Pretty dang happy with Ben's progress. If you guys remember, Ben is the quarter horse gelding that came into my program 70 days ago deemed "dangerous" and "unpredictable". Here he is today, just a laid back dude freshly graduated into this cowhorse bridle. 20 more days and he goes home to a happy owner in the state of Washington.

Regalo looking sharp after his body clip! He went from a dun color to a pretty dang cool looking grullo. Thank you to Lindsey Whitcher for the awesome job.

As promised, I'll be having another one-day clinic at my barn in Sherwood Oregon. The clinic will be focusing on improving your stops, turn arounds, softer/ more relaxed horse and we will also be working the horses on the mechanical flag. It'll be on Sunday January 21st from 10am-3pm, cost is $125/ person for the day. Only 2 spots left. Message me with questions or to reserve your spot. Auditors are welcome, $10/ person (no fee if under 18 years of age). #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #teammustangbuckles #reining #reiner #slidingstop #turnarounds #jrhorsetraining

@jr_horsetraining

Today Regalo (a once wild mustang) and I working on his turn arounds. He already had the idea of the turn around but in order to clean things up a bit, we really slowed things down to work on balance, softness and fluidity. When we have control of those hips, asking him to plant that inside leg becomes a lot easier... i want him thinking "more weight on the inside leg", so that as we increase speed, he'll remain balanced. I'll continue showing videos on his progression working on all those things mentioned above. In the next video I will talk about my body positioning and why I am sitting and balancing myself the way that I am in the schooling phase ONLY and why the outside rein is very important in getting a better turn around. I've chosen him as one of the horses to do these videos on to show just how versitile the Mustangs can be. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #teammustangbuckles #jrhorsetraining #kiger #wildmustang #spanishmustang #turnarounds #spins

@jr_horsetraining

(Long, but definitely a good read) I like not having a "style" with my training program, in fact that's one of my favorite things about it. That's why you'll see a variety of horses in my program: reiners, cowhorses, trail horses, dressage horses, colts, problem horses, etc. I take a little bit from everyone, from Clinton Anderson and Parelli's booming marketing methods, Doug Williamson's ability to work a cow on a horse, Warwick Schiller and Dan James' sheer talent and creativity, Nick Dowers' horsemanship, Buck's genuine and humble way with horses and with people, Les Vogt's ability to get a horse to turn around and stop, Ray Hunt's deep love for the horse that at 75 years of age he was still giving clinics to educate people on a better way, even Michael Jordan's ridiculous competitive nature and drive to get better at all costs but most of all his intense passion and hunger for his craft. I not only soak up the things TO do, but I also learn from watching certain trainers on what NOT to do, which is equally if not more important. In this picture I'm riding an Andalusian gelding in a dressage saddle during a demo I did this year at the Washington Horse Expo. It was great to show the audience that no matter the breed or discipline, its incredibly vital for a horse to have a solid foundation. I had the great opportunity to spend the greater part of this year starting colts destined for the dressage ring for an accomplished dressage trainer. There, I learned a great deal about the dressage horse and discipline that I will continue to use in my program. Point is, NEVER stop learning and don't close your mind to other's ideas. To me, life and horses are all the same... when you think that you have nothing to improve or more to learn, that's when you should walk away. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #teammustangbuckles #jrhorsetraining

Working horses in 24° weather yesterday wasn't too bad since I was moving around, so a heartfelt thank you to those that braved the cold to audit my clinic. All 4 horses improved: they were all willing, relaxed and able to cope with all new things. I was able to ride all 4 horses successfully making the weekend the most positive experience for each horse to the best of my ability. A big thank you to Dancing Mountain Ranch for hosting my clinic. Awesome facility and I appreciate the hospitality! #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #teammustangbuckles #hancock #driftwood #aqha #roan #coltstarting #naturalhorsemanship #jrhorsetraining

Yesterday was the first day of the clinic and it went great! Each horse had their own personality, which was great to show the owners and auditors different methods/ techniques. Each horse progressed very nicely. I was able to ride 3 of the 4 horses.

Lex and I working on her turn arounds (spins) today. This is our 3rd session working on it and she's really planting that pivot foot! This filly has come a long way already in only a couple of weeks. Again, I love what ground driving does for these young horses in the training process and the fact that you can teach them so much before you ever step foot in the saddle. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #teammustangbuckles #coltstarting #naturalhorsemanship #Hancock #driftwood #aqha #nfqha #jrhorsetraining

Tip Tuesday: When working with your horse, at times you may find your horse looking at you with a blank stare, almost stoic- like and not processing what you're teaching them... if you look closely at their muzzle, you'll find them very tight lipped, almost clenched, holding on to a lot of anxiety and stress. I simply take my finger and rub the inside of their mouth, almost like the gesture you use to help them put the bit in their mouth (it's what I'm doing in this picture). You might have to do it once or twice, but almost immediately you'll see them start to "lick and chew" and drop their head. You'll help them simulate their thought process and help them relax at the same time. To me, when my horse is licking and chewing, it's like the blinking light on a camera... it's a sign that the things you are teaching them are recording. This isn't by any means a fix-all trick or gimmick, it's just one thing that I really use in my program as a way to set up my horses for success while allowing them to relax and process their thoughts. Happy and blessed Tuesday to everyone, have fun with your horses today but most of all be safe! ** Thank you to Susan Liesemer for capturing this moment ** #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #jrhorsetraining

Ben is an 8 year old quarter horse gelding that came in deemed "unpredictable" and "dangerous" while in a different training program... bad enough that he was sent back home to the owner. Here he is 30 days in my program and we've already worked the mechanical flag and thrown the rope off his back, he could care less about either. He has a great laid back personality.

Been on trails, thrown a rope off her back, dragged logs, worked the mechanical flag, ties, cross ties, trailers great, great for farrier, gets along with other horses.

Had a great second day of the clinic! All the horses remembered exercises from day one and I was able to ride all 5. Each one progressed at their own pace: some were in a bit, some were in a bosal, some were being roped off of and some were even dragging logs. All 5 horses will be coming into my program to continue to progress and expand from where we left off this weekend. Thank you to Renee and David and August Moon Farm for having me out this weekend.

This 2 year old AQHA filly, PS KATIE SHINES, is coming along great. Not only is she bred very very well to be a reiner, but she's got the mind and talent to be an all around horse. In this video, she's displaying that she'd make a great ranch versatility horse. I feel like there's nothing this filly won't be able to do, and with her awesome temperament, it'll make things that much more enjoyable. More videos to come. More video and pictures available upon request. Don't forget this filly is for sale and priced just right with everything she's doing at $22,000. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #aqha #colonelssmokinggun #colonelslonegun #gunner #horsesofinstagram #jrhorsetraining

Anthem is a 3 year old AQHA mare and this was our 2nd session working on her keeping her pivot foot planted in her turn arounds. I've had a few inquiries :) as to my seat in these clips when I'm asking these young babies to turn around, bc of that ill be doing a few tutorials throughout the next couple of weeks with anthem and show the progress with her turn arounds. In the videos I will explain the reasoning for my seat (which, yes, is only temporary). I realize everyone has a different method and technique for their turnarounds but this is what is working best for ME at the moment. I'll also be showing other horses in my program that are further along in the turn around so that you guys can see what we're aiming for. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #jrhorsetraining

Was incredibly proud of Hazelnut yesterday during our run in the green-horse open reining. We placed 4th out of 20! Still a long way to go but he's got a lot of heart and a super athlete. We have green-horse open cowhorse and open cowhorse left to do today, we're both going to be tiiiired after this weekend. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #wssh #reiner #reining #slidingstop #rundown #reinedcowhorse #aqha #jrhorsetraining

Here's Hazelnut and I last night around 1am cuttin our first cow during the cutting jackpot. We didn't pick out the best cow but I was very happy with how Hazelnut did regardless. I really like this horse a lot, he's coming along super nicely. He's got a lot of try, I can't wait to get him on more cows and progress his training. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #wssh #reinedcowhorse #cutting #cutter #cowhorse #jrhorsetraining

"Don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do something. If you've got a dream, you've gotta protect it. When people can't do something themselves, they try and tell you that you can't do it. If you want something, go get it.

Ben came into my program 8 days ago. He was labeled 'dangerous' and 'unpredictable' while in a different training program. The owners bought him at a feed lot with no knowledge of his history. His first week with me has involved plenty of groundwork, being very black and white with everything but also with PLENTY of reward/ release.... the results of this are in the video: this is his 2nd ride and boy he's really turning into a very willing and sweet horse. We all have a story for why we are the way we are, maybe that's why I'm drawn to horses like this or horses like Delta. I love the process and the transformation when these horses are given a second chance at life but shown in a way that makes sense to them. "The human is so good at war. He knows how to fight. But making peace, boy, thats the hardest thing for a human. But once you start giving, you won't believe how much you get back." - Ray Hunt #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #naturalhorsemanship #rayhunt #jrhorsetraining

"If you are fond of a horse and wish to do him a real favor... train him well. Teach him good manners, good habits, both in the stable and under the saddle. You need never worry about the future of such a horse if for any reason you may have to part with him. You assure him of friends wherever he goes. Perhaps the greatest kindness you can do any horse is to educate him well." - Tom Roberts **thank you to Ashley Graham Photography for this candid picture** #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #naturalhorsemanship #jrhorsetraining

It was a pleasure competing against a talented trainer, humble person and another fellow @teamequinesaddlepadco sponsorie @huntressbarrelracer Jessi Jo and I sporting our Team Equine saddle pads and boots during our event yesterday. Stylish and protection for our horses! A big thank you to my saddle sponsor, Pines Custom Saddles. I used this beautiful cowhorse saddle for the event. We were in the saddle most of the day, so it's a blessing to have a comfortable saddle not only for your horse but for yourself... and of course, looking great all the while! Visit them at www.pinesplacellc.com to get yourself in a beautiful custom made saddle. Thank you to my other sponsors - Blue Roan Boutique and Hubbard Chevrolet. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #jrhorsetraining

A few more pictures from yesterday's Lucky 7 Trainers Challenge. Again, I can't say enough about how proud I was of Delta. To be where she was at even 60 days ago and come to out yesterday and be as composed as she was and receive 2nd place against some awesome horses and great trainers, was nothing short of amazing! The biggest compliment I received yesterday (besides delta finding a great new home) was having a few ladies come up to me with tears in their eyes and tell me that they knew this mare before she came into my program and they couldn't believe her transformation. They couldn't believe it was the same horse. I love what I do, I'm blessed to be able to do what I do for a living... being able to help these horses at a new life and giving the human a different perspective on how Horsemanship can be done. Thank you everyone for following Delta's story while she was in my program and thank you to everyone who came out yesterday. #teamjrdelta #lucky7trainerschallenge #seo #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #jrhorsetraining

What an incredible day! All the horses were amazing. After all the blood, sweat and bruises the last 100 days, I couldn't have asked any more from Delta today. She won over the crowd during our freestyle, those that were there know what I'm talking about... she's one special mare. We got 2nd place today, only a few points behind 1st place. Congratulations to Rachel and Valente on an amazing job today. Delta found a new home during the auction, congratulations to Brittany on your purchase! I look forward to working with you and Delta. #teamjrdelta #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #jrhorsetraining

Lucky 7 Trainers Challenge is here!! Those of you that have a free Saturday tomorrow, come out to watch and support. It's being held in McMinnville Oregon at the Yamhill County Fairgrounds (picture is the schedule). All the trainers and the horses have worked real hard, it'll be a great display of Horsemanship. I'll say this til I'm blue in the face: thank you Sound Equine Options, event organizers and volunteers for putting on such a great event for a such a great cause. #teamjrdelta #lucky7trainerschallenge #seo #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #jrhorsetraining

As promised.... Delta working buffalo today. Incredibly proud of this mare. This was our last big adventure before Saturday's Lucky 7 competition. I'll say it again, whoever ends up with this mare will be one happy and lucky person. #teamequine #pinescustomsaddles #teamblueroan #teamchevy #workingcowhorse #workingbuffalohorse #jrhorsetraining
