"Yes I keep my horses outside too - except for special circumstances too like when showing, going to a clinic, etc.... I think are times when a stall is an appropriate choice for sure... but for the day to day living if you can provide 24/7 turnout…"

"Personally I agree that outdoor board is better.  When I had horses it is what I used except in really unusual circumstances--say an injury."

I'm sure it is! I actually can't ride like that but I ride my boy bareback in a halter and with long reins. When I lunge him I only have his halter on but the lead rein I clip off. If he has nothing on he is naughty! Anyway, I also use my voice, hands and some times lunging whip (to tap him wen he is lazy) with the string curled round it. He is really good and we have a really good bond. I only got him in May this year. Could u maybe give sum tips 2 help gain trust? Wuld be cool! =]
Thnx! :)

Hey Lindsey, I went to a great clinic based on Chris Irwin's philosophies of creating a better relationship with your horse. I am becoming much more mindful of where my core is pointed and what I may be inadvertently communicating to a horse! Had fun yesterday getting the mare I ride to follow me through the bending poles using only my body to lead her :) What fun!
