Marlene Thoms commented on Carolyn Resnick's blog post Training a Stubborn Horse!
"My horse is also a bit bossy if he has a chance. It is his natural tendency probably learned because it worked in the past. I've had him a year and I accept that is his way and I didn't want a doormat for a horse anyway. I also don't…"

Training a Stubborn Horse!

This question comes from Melissa in Indiana and is typical of ones like this that I receive on a regular basis. Her situation involves a horse that is just too bossy! Perhaps this sounds familiar to you too? Melissa writes:I have a 4.5 year old gelding quarter mix I’ve had since he was seven months old. He has had 45 days professional (natural horsemanship) training and that was almost two years ago. I know that’s not much and I’m at fault for him being so pushy because I do not put enough time…See More

Change the Frame of a Horses Mind to Overcome Resistance

The story I’m about to share with you will be practical information for those of you who really know how to use the Waterhole Rituals ™and who have trained a few horses with them. For those of you that haven’t, let it be “food for thought” for the future as you grow as horsemen and women. I want people to think about what is going on in their horse’s mind. No one should try the strategy I am going to share with you unless they are expert trainers with my Method or can see how it would work…See More

Getting a Horse Present and Connected to Overcome Resistance

Last week I gave a lesson to a student of mine, Stephanie, who has a Welsh Cobmare that she has been driving and riding. The horse is very fearful and so shehad started doing the Uberstreichen Exercises and working on getting hercomfortable in her territory.The problem I noticed with this mare was that although she was doing well withthe Waterhole Rituals™, when she was brought to the barn, she did not want tohave the bridle put on her. She was acting sort of wild and frightened, so Iasked how…See More

Inspiring Ways of using Liberty Training

I have a student I want to tell you about today because she has used my Method in an interesting way and it might help or inspire others to use it this way. To give you some history she once had many horses of her own and ran a successful riding, training and equine therapy business. Since she shut down her business and was without horses, an opportunity presented itself years later to help a stranger with an Icelandic Pony in need of attention.When she arrived at the farm, she said she was…See More

Stina’s Views on Liberty Training

The wonderful thing about the internet is that you can reach people all across the world and never have to leave home. Stina, who is Norwegian but lives on the island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean, is a friend and student. Stina got in touch with me towards the end of 2007 and I started coaching her by phone and email. The results for her and her herd of wild horses have been astonishing, for which I must give Stina huge credit.Stina was recently featured in Hesteliv, the main horse magazine…See More

Training a Horse Using Liberty

Today we have a question from Victoria in Australia who writes:I have a 9 year old thoroughbred mare, who I bought as a green, broken four year old. I trained her up for show jumping and she was coming along quite well until she fractured her offside hind when she was seven. Since then she has had problems on and off with lameness and more recently a sore back. She is perfectly capable…See More

Jackie Cochran commented on Carolyn Resnick's blog post Sending a Horse Away at Liberty
"I never had much problems getting my horses to move away--once I explained to them what I wanted. I never fed treats, it is just that my horses often did not want to waste energy moving away!"

Sending a Horse Away at Liberty

I want to address a problem that people are having sending a horse away from them at liberty. Many people have expressed concern that driving a horse away from them will hurt the trust and bond. I can understand this point of view because of the struggle it might take in their mind to teach a horse to leave you when he does not want to go.But it is a very simple fix and I am surprised that someone who is having this problem has not figured it out. First, I want to say that for a horse not to…See More

Importance of Natural Leadership Ability when Working at Liberty

Let me explain what I mean about having natural leadership ability and the importance of this when working at liberty.Someone called me and asked if they could get any benefit training their horse with my system from watching the DVDs alone even though they did not have previous horse experience. So I asked him some questions and from his answers I felt safe to say I thought that in his case, the DVD would be of some benefit although I could not be sure of that. It turned out that the DVDs were…See More

A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
My life with horses began in Indio, California in the 1940s. Riding alone in the desert as a child, I nurtured an intuitive bond with horses.

In the beginning of what would become a lifelong passion for developing innovative horse training methods created from my interactive studies with wild horses, I spent three summers of her childhood gradually becoming accepted into a community of wild horses culminating in me riding the lead mare of the herd, bareback and without bridle.

As a junior rider my interest led to training and showing in both English and Western divisions. My desire to create a championship performance from the willing spirit of the horse led me on a unique quest to gain knowledge of natural wild horse behavior and communication systems.

From my studies of wild horses, I formulated my own system of relating to horses I call The Carolyn Resnick Method and which I truly believe is the foundation for all equestrian pursuits.

My formal introduction to the wider equine community began in the early 1970s from my ranch, Stonehenge Arabians/Dances With Horses, a successful training and Arabian breeding center in Sonoma, California.

I subsequently toured the United States for several years, giving clinics and exhibitions on my Method before retiring from the breeding and touring businesses when I moved to my current ranch in Escondido, California, from where I continue to teach.


I also serve on the advisory board of Return To Freedom American Wild Horse Sanctuary in Lompoc, California http://www.returntofreedom.org

Simple Things Can Work Wonders

Sometimes the simple things work wonders with horses. This is another story I want to share with you about how I caught a horse that was uncatchable. It was during my first job in La Jolla, California where I was hired to handle a large training center of hunters and jumpers. What they like to do in some of these training centers is to play a little joke on you on the first day that you arrive. It’s a way of breaking ice and getting to know… Continue
