-Eliza & Loppa -

Eliza, Loppa and the rest of the family:

Welcome to my page!
Some small info on me:
Eliza, 34years old. Married to Gisle and together we are the lucky parents our daughter Emma!
We live in a small place south-east in Norway.
My horse is the fantastic Lille Loppa (transleted to English: Little Flea :-)! Loppa is an Ardenner mare born in 05.
She has been in my care since she was 6months old......and will be forever!
Our interests are mainly: long reing, playing at liberty, take walks inn the woods loose if possible....and this year we have just started some riding. All this is combined with clicker training!

My main interests regarding horses are: psychology, hoofcare, nutrition, and long reining.
(And mostly everything else *laughing*)

Hi Eliza
I don't think he's very much off, nor do I think he is teaching the horse not to respond in a "horsey way"; he is not correcting it, just encouraging it to be more comfortable on that side (not a bad thing at all). What I reacted to was that he, by not understanding the reason for the horse to go on one side or the other, is making it hard for himself. Having said that, I agree with him that the horse prefers the left side, although not as much as he thinks.

The horse is simply going to the side he asks, whether he knows it or not. Everyone that tests their horse using his "test" will find that the horse won't let them over to the right side, and if the do the same thing on the opposite side, they will find that the horse won't let them over to the left side either!

Also, having the horse on the outside like he does in the end is causing the horse to hold back a lot, making the poor guy having to cluck like a hyperactive chipmunk. I wish I could tell him to just turn the other way… :)

He seems to be a good and gentle trainer in any case, with a good understanding of most of the horse's communication, it's just the little turning detail that messes with him…

Do you tell her to "kippis" so she canters? LOL... I guess there could be other words for that, too, but that's the first one that comes to my mind.

Finnish reads almost the same as Swedish (which is about the same as Norwegian) - you pronounce the words as they are. But yeah, the words are nothing like Swedish/Danish/Norwegian... it's very different, and very hard if you didn't learn it when you were a baby!

I like the pictures of your girl, she's very pretty and she looks like a great character! :)

He was actually way over 16 hands - my husband made the measuring stick back when we only had little Arabs and he marked it up only to 16 hands. Hank is (or was...) somewhere around 16.3 which translates to about 170cm - and I'm afraid he's still growing..... he's not 4 yrs old yet...
(I'm originally from Finland... shh... don't tell 'em... LOL)

Your Girl looks nothing short of amazing! Wow! I Like that!!!

"Twisted Truths" is indeed a great book. I have it myself, and have found that I need to read the same three pages about 20 times before I can trust myself to try out any particular technique on my horse! But it's amazing how well most of it works, even when it's only me trying to do it.
