  1. Unbelievably good stuff. Reverse psychology. Thanks Warwick. Brilliant. Got a 2 yo filly here to work it out with, that's a quick learner.

  2. I'm sorry I'm not disrespecting your training once again but I am furious about my horse absolutely Furious and and by the way he has been treated because it's been a living hell for him and I Can Only Imagine his mom to what she went through being blind and old he's old Bill and Nancy should have gotten ahold of somebody in my family before they got rid of my horses or kept in there till I got out it's not like they didn't have the room and I've known them a long time total disrespect for me and my horses

  3. I respect what you do but you have to understand my perspective you shouldn't have even had that horse nobody should have had that horse besides me and it pisses me off because they probably sold him for a lot of money it cost me $100 to breed my mare and he was free you could have given me a million dollars for him and I can't believe that I'm looking at him as a jumping horse or show horse that's not what I made him and I understand why you had so much problem and everybody that's been around him and been on him that had so much problem but to all the people that are watching your clinics you are a great horse trainer and can help people that want a horse like that but he was never meant to be that and that's not how he was trained or Road I can't even believe this

  4. I'm getting more and more aggravated every video I watch of these damn ring Riders ruining my perfectly good gated Tennessee walking trail horse

  5. Now I see why your wife has panic attacks.You like making animal comparisons and as good as you are, mean it, you are. It's just that you are a cowboy. Bighead. Control freak.then just compete. Maybe I know a bit more than you. Hormones cause fear. And you are fuelling that. I'm a hard woman. So, you cannot control me. Unless you beat the eff out of me. You talk too much.

  6. I'm new to this – so sorry for my ignorance – but does waving the flag at him make him head shy or scared of things waving at him (e.g. flags at events etc) in the future?

  7. This horse was never talk the basics of ground work before being taught to carry a saddle and perform in dressage. Very undisciplined horse that was not very well broke.

  8. I cant stand horses that behave like old dogs on a leash, head down mopey and brow beaten at all times. A horse should be at your side, keeping up, head up, level and eager, listening, not dragging behind you at all times like its about to die. That might be the way quarter horses are meant to behave……. Horses but particularly dressage horses need stimulace and they need to be themselves as often as possible or they go flat, yep even the most sensitive lively horses wear down. Fear, rider fear is not a good place to start training. Dont want this dont want that, oh he's pushy oh he's the other thing, that's all rider fear. Dressage is incredibly demanding and repetitive, it's basically F*** dull for a horse. We dont want them feeling deflated and worn out mentally. Guaranteed any horse after extreme exertion, close attention be it running a race or doing a demanding Grand Prix dressage test is going to behave exactly like "Dougie" (think his name is) here did after being chased around an incredibly small circle by a flag and asked to change directions every half turn or even less. A big horse made to do quite extreme foot work. Again something we would never ask of an expensive dressage horse as their joints and ligaments are extremely vulnerable because of the work they are expected to do. Doing it once or twice in a field free with other horses until they settle down is fine but this forced repetitive movement is basically not OK Im afraid. Anyway he is exhausted, a fit horse exhausted. His profuse sweating tells us this was high pressure, high exertion and stress. He is basically a tired horse, so standing still when allowed is not a miracle by any means. Will he be the same in tip top condition primed and ready for work tomorrow morning or the day of the show? Maybe not. Difficult to say. Other management practises need to be employed to temper the energy level to just where you need them, be it getting the young grooms to work them and lunging lightly. No mistake they need every drop of go they've got besides bucking. I think all the analogies with people, kids and married couples particularly husbands just dont work for me, not for horses and certainly not for people. Horses just aren't people. Besides some horse form close bonds and are happy to stand right next to one another in the field, each with their head over the others back snoozing at rest…….this is a partnership not slavery.

  9. I've gotten way too cuddly with my horse and allow him to intrude on my personal space. I'm wondering how to change that without making him think I'm telling him he's bad. I will make a study of this and read the books you mentioned. Great video!

  10. Brilliant, thank you. Look forward to implementing all this. I really like the way you weave understanding of horses to an understanding of life!

  11. Warwick should keep it shorter and try not to wander off with his talking, that would improve his presentation a lot…

  12. I've started to hear Karl Hester refer to balance in ground work. At last the dressage world is hearing you.

  13. I've watched 100's of hour of Warwick's Video's, over and over. This particular video , I've been patient for 13 long minutes before I lost my cool towards another clueless woman with an expensive , spoiled, out of control 1,500 lb horse. I'm not angry with the horse though. The owner is a total idiot. I'm watching her go round and round with that beautiful creation of God Almighty
    and she continually keeps yanking that lead line down and up, down and up on that horses nose as he tries to walk " AWAY" around her Idiotic hand movements, that are also painful to the horse. She says that she rides this horse in Dressage, but I don't think that she can even ride him without a bucking bronco show. Everything that has been going on in the 1st 13 minutes is all of her fault. In fact, everything that is wrong is with HER, NOT THE HORSE..Thank God that Warwick is there to save the horse from it's owner.. In short, and I've seen this same story 1,000 times before and it's always with a female trying to BULLY a 1,400lb horse. They must all learn from the same MORON FEMALE….What a joke…

  14. I've always been a big Parelli fan, as that was the first taste of "natural" horsemanship that I experienced, and at a young age too. But I've recently discovered your videos and, while the principles are the same of course, I've really enjoyed watching and have easily been able to grasp the concepts you explain and demonstrate in each video.

    Please keep posting and I hope to learn from you in person one day

  15. Has this horse been tested for Shivers? He seems to show the signs of a horse that I am familiar with. The uncontrollable hind leg twitch, the twitching shoulder and wither muscles, all of which are usually induced by stressed. Which he obviously was from the get go … I think it is unfair for this horse be put in this high stress environment and this should have been worked on systematically at home.

  16. Excellent demo, if ground work is an art then you are a very good artist. Watching this video will definitely influence my work on the ground. I already understood the value of redirection to keep focus but thank you for helping me see the connection more clearly in regards to collection and transition that the horse can later recall when under saddle.

  17. I have a very interesting predicament. My horse has a chronic suspensory issue. He is not pushy per say, but definitely disrespectful and aloof. How can I get his attention without the sending off and yielding exercises?

  18. I love the clarity you bring to the difference between sensitizing and de-sensitizing but more so the way you show how they have to be balanced. Thank you.

  19. Great video but I think the advice that struck me the most was that horses don't learn from pressure, they learn from release of pressure. Struggling with my mare right now to get her to relax at the walk and trot and not keep speeding up. I realized I was tense and kept waiting to "correct" her when she sped up. Yesterday I tried instead concentrating on giving her a loose rein every time she slowed down and relaxed. It was definitely an improvement! I've been devouring your videos and have learned a lot. I like that you really incorporate horse behavior and psychology- so many times we try to interact with animals like they're humans and everyone involved ends up frustrated and confused.

  20. have you ever had a horse/pony that does react to the flag? Great work once again…. when are you coming back to the UK?

  21. At around 37-38mins, the horse does not look like he is just standing and relaxing with another horse in the pasture at all… He is stressed out of his mind, more like he's in a paddock with a lion, and looks like he's about to fall onto his face because his knees are so wobbly. Horses respect each others' space because they notice small body language signals, the ones we as humans are not able to do. It's energy & intention that say "stay away" or "come closer". That's also why they don't need to constantly look at each other, they can feel this type of thing. We CANNOT act like a horse, because we aren't one. But we can construct a separate language that both horse and human can understand, but it is still the human that needs to teach the horse what means what. And it does not need to involve frantically waving flags or whacking whips on the floor to get their attention… it just needs repetition of a consequent sequence of calm signals, so the horse starts to recognise the sequence and will gradually start to react to the first and most subtle signal (intention) instead of the last one (voice cue, pressure) because it gets him to the reward (food/scratch, or release) quicker. If you want a horse to stand still, you just need to reward (which is whatever the horse finds rewarding at that time) whenever he stands still, and you'd get the same result as was obtained in the video only in a much calmer way and with a more relaxed result. (btw this is not a critique on Mr. Schiller personally, I've gotten a lot of helpful tips from his videos)

  22. This was an awesome video!  You gave some great analogies that people could understand.  One of my favorite phrases is "understand the nature of the beast", whether it be horse, dog, cat, bird, etc., or human.  That's where we humans fail so often, we do not take the "nature of the beast" into consideration, or we flat out deny their very nature. 

    This video is far longer than what you usually post.  I am very grateful that you decided to post it.

  23. Thanks for posting this! I can completely relate to this video.My 11yo WB acts exactly like this. He has major issues with respecting space. I love your explanation on why they do this. Time to break out the rope halter and set time boundarys.
