Lauren’s book Curbside Service: Change the Way You and Your Horse Think About Each Other, is now available in book form and Kindle on amazon.com.

You’re on a ride in the mountains. All your friends are milling about trying to get on, doing the one-legged hop while their horse dances around in circles or moves off.

Meanwhile, you step up onto your trailer fender, your horse moves into position with the saddle at your knees before you even turn around, and stands perfectly still while you mount. You adjust your hat and notice the envy on the other faces. A smile crosses your lips as you pick up your reins and waltz – I mean, walk off.

Lauren, I have to comment on this!  I have trained four horses to do curbside service and I am thrilled with the results.  Now, I have had another chance to try your way of working with a balky situation.   I was on a quarter horse who decided that it was too scary to go through a gate onto a "creepy" looking wooded path.  Before I would have kicked, prodded, pushed and may be have gotten off to get the horse to go where I wanted.  I was patience, let her back, kept her straight.  When she stopped, I let her think about it and asked again, with a couple of leg bumps.  We did this about three times, no hurry, no rush, very patient, no big deal...and you know what happened...on the fourth try she decided it was ok and we quietly walked through the opening.  Thank you so much for your fabulous horse sense!
