    Lazy Horse Motivation & Flag Work Intro

    Welcome to Season 2 Episode 2 of the Horseman's Academy Podcast! In our Q&A segment, we answer a question about a lazy reining horse that doesn't want to run hard. During the Foundation segment, we dive into Day 2 of our colt starting program with Desensitizing, Round Penning, Yielding the Hindquarters, and preparing to handle the horse's feet. For the Advanced segment, we discuss how to translate the dry work fundamentals we've established to the flag for the first time. Finally, we wrap up the episode with a note on hard-to-catch horses.

    If you're going to work with young stallions, you need a good program, and you must have good feel and timing as a horseman. In this bonus segment, we break down the consequences of poor planning, poor breeding, and poor training; and how they created a "mutually abusive" situation between a horse and human.

Rearden Steele ,

Thank You!

I can’t thank you guys enough for this content. All the info on bridging the gap from foundation to advanced is exactly what I’ve been having to struggle through and figure out on my own. It’s been so motivating to hear that I didn’t do a crappy job on the foundation, I just didn’t have the experience and complete understanding to build the bridge that takes the horse to the advanced level.

Highly recommend!
