Thank you to my newest sponsor @triplecrownfeed! Thank you for having faith in me and in my program. I'm incredibly honored to be the only western rider being sponsored in Oregon and Washington! I'm really looking forward to this partnership! I've already been feeding Triple Crown to Simba and I'm loving the way he's looking but I'm also really loving that it's not making him hot or frazzled. β€’ #triplecrownfeed #TEathletesNW #teamblueroan #teamchevy #rockstarcustomleather #teammustangbuckles #DPsaddlery #reining #reiner #turnarounds #spins #nrha #magnumchicdream #topsailwhiz #jrhorsetraining

Sunny is a beautiful 4 year old Gypsy filly that belongs to Lynn and Dan Roberge of L & D Trailers. This sweet filly spent 30 days in my program last year and is back to continue her training... I love that she remembered what we worked on last year. β€’ #TEathletesNW #teamblueroan #teamchevy #rockstarcustomleather #teammustangbuckles #DPsaddlery #gypsycob #gypsyvanner #gypsy #coltstarting #jrhorsetraining

Sable's first ride... she's come a looooooong way. She's finally starting to relax and trust. After doing our normal groundwork, we even got to walk/trot through the water when i was on her. Incredibly proud of this 3 year old β€’ #TEathletesNW #teamblueroan #teamchevy #rockstarcustomleather #teammustangbuckles #DPsaddlery #apha #futurityhorse #futurityprospect #westernpleasure #jrhorsetraining

Get yourself a 4-legged companion that looks at you the way Juno looks at me 🐢 when I had to put Ace down last year, I didn't think I'd find a dog that would even come close to him.... it's safe to say that I think Ace and Juno woulda been best friends. A huge thanks to the James family β€’ PC: @through.n.through Photography β€’ #TEathletesNW #teamblueroan #teamchevy #rockstarcustomleather #teammustangbuckles #DPsaddlery #mansbestfriend #vizsla #bordercollie #jrhorsetraining

You... yeah, you... have a BLESSED week! So many things to be thankful for πŸ™ focus on the positives and the things you do have instead of the negatives and the things you don't have. Just remember, it could always be much worse. New week, new day, new attitude! Motivate yourself and motivate others, it makes it easier when others around you have the same positive energy. β€’ #TEathletesNW #teamblueroan #teamchevy #rockstarcustomleather #teammustangbuckles #DPsaddlery #motivationalmondays #blessed #bethankful #fortunate #perspective #jrhorsetraining

Still can't believe this is the same horse! Bear came in with a bucking issue a few weeks ago... he's starting to really relax physically but most importantly mentally. He's come a long way in a short time but we still have a ways to go. Loving his progress and very proud of how much he's trying for me. I said this before, I'm gonna learn from him just as much as he's gonna learn from me if not more. (No, this isn't the same horse that fell on me today... I know some of you might be wondering) @drewbongiovi @jaybongiovi β€’ #TEathletesNW #teamblueroan #teamchevy #rockstarcustomleather #teammustangbuckles #DPsaddlery #aqha #dun #ranchhorse #progress #jrhorsetraining

When a horse falls back on top of you and your buckle takes some of the blow.... luckily it was my wade saddle and not my cutting saddle. The horn on my stomach woulda felt a little different.... just another Tuesday 🀠 β€’ #TEathletesNW #teamblueroan #teamchevy #rockstarcustomleather #teammustangbuckles #DPsaddlery #illfeelittomorrow #jrhorsetraining

**Working with a horse that has a bucking issue**: This horse came in from out of state with a bucking issue. Leading up to this video I did my normal groundwork and covered my checklist, which I'll show in a different video. First couple of rides, I never get on all the way... I'm always on halfway with one foot in the stirrup. I'm in a safer position if he goes to blow, I'm able to bail if need be. Then, the first few steps i keep his head flexed to the left and push his hips to the right... this allows his body to start softening up and he'll get comfortable and confident with my weight on his back. I make sure to allow his head forward at times when I'm hopping on and off so that he sees me on both sides and doesn't get surprised seeing me on his off side. Once he's softened up, I'll get him moving out into a trot. I'm also teaching him that just bc my leg touched him, it doesn't mean "go". Without a "cluck" and energy behind my leg, it shouldn't mean go. I'll show this process in a different video as well. This process is slower and requires more time, but the horse will be more relaxed and more confident moving forward... you'll set them up for success a lot better and you'll put yourself in a safe situation. It's not a "push, push, push" process, this whole process is about building the horse's confidence with himself and trust with the rider. This whole session was about an hour long but I cut the video into segments to highlight the points that I talk about above. Anyone that knows this horse knows that he is by NO means an easy horse, but he's very smart and willing. I'm learning just as much from him as he is from me. β€’ "it takes as long as it takes" β€’ #TEathletesNW #teamblueroan #teamchevy #rockstarcustomleather #teammustangbuckles #DPsaddlery #aqha #dun #coltstarting #safetyfirst #slowerisbetter #jrhorsetraining @drewbongiovi
