Tame (and train) wild horses in a contemporary way
Secure, reasonable and dependable ways of domesticating and training a wild animal. However, horses represent a different kind of situtation. When it comes to breeding wild horses, there are so many different things that it is not possible to get all kinds of "what is" printed, even if we know them all. However, once we begin to grasp the "why", we can select the appropriate "what" to do or even develop our own solutions for enjoying and training our horses.
Many training methods and training methods address particular situations and can lead to unwanted results for others. It is your responsibility as a coach to decide which tips to take and which skills to use. Even though the overall security balance of domesticating and training wild horses is relatively good in comparison to riding activity, there is a risk of being in close quarters with a large beast.
The use of appropriate protective equipment is essential. You could create pages about the meaning of right footwear or boot, glove and helmet. To many equine doctors on television seem obliged to be machos and carry Cowboy hats. A small otherwise small incident without suitable protective equipment can be deadly. Many years ago my neighbour was murdered when she hit her brains out training a little bit of horses.
Severe injury became so frequent that in the 1980' a number of institutions such as Harbor View Medical Center, John Muir Trauma Center, California Shock Trauma Air Rescue, Regional Ambulance Company, fire brigades and two boards and training institutions (including KBR) started the "Equestrian Crash Course". "Figures showed that most horse riding fatalities and paralyzing injury were due to two causes: inadequate helmet cover and incorrect rope handling.
A thing I have learnt from 30 years of fire fighting and more than 20 years of training horses is to wear the right protection equipment and consider the possible implications before I decide what to do. After all, to tame and train a wild animal is like to build a home. Returning to this "why" deal, if you are learning "why" then you have a fairly good notion of what to do and why good prep is so important.
Wild Horse mentoring projects were first designed in the early 90s by the later Barbara Eustis-Cross. Knowing a guy called Pat Parelli, we found that his approach and approach to wild horses worked very well. 1998 the mental coaching programme was extended to become official workshop with truck loads of wild horses.
Parelli organisation Frank Bell, the deceased John Sharp (who cuddled wild horses and donkeys from an power chair in the 90s) and Robert Denlinger. Wild Horse Training sessions were one of a kind in that the horses and donkeys were wild, just from the transport of fuel, but the humans who were taming and training them were participating in the training.
Those attendees were tutors and volunteers who wanted to know more about wild horses and donkeys. In order to allow humans in stables with wild horses, we had to be very aware of the dynamic. Moreover, these actions provided a vast learner experience for all of us, we would continually criticize our advances and fine-tune our work.
Besides Frank Bell, John Sharp and Robert Denlinger these are Joyce Sharp, Cher Eastep, Sharon Lamm, Cliff and Janet Tipton, Donna Mae West, Jim Rea, Mark Atwood, Leslie Neuman, Dennis Bright, Hue Simpson, Phil West, Chris Erlon, Betty Retzer, Jill Whitt, Steve Rother, Diane Delano, Rick and Kitty Lauman, Brent Huyett, Rob Pliskin and Tony Sumner.
