A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
You know Julie Goodnight as The Horse Master on her award-winning RFD-TV television show. Through her varied background—riding and training horses in dressage, jumping, racing, reining, colt-starting, and versatility ranch work, and wilderness riding—Julie has discovered the underlying principles important to any type of riding. She teaches "Classic Skills for a Natural Ride" and communicates clearly with horses and riders in any discipline and at any level. Julie travels coast-to-coast—and beyond—throughout much of the year to help horses and riders at horse expos, conferences, clinics, and while filming for her television “makeover” show. Julie has been featured in the top equestrian publications, including The Trail Rider, Horse & Rider --where she's a member of Team Horse & Rider-- and America’s Horse. Her syndicated columns appear in over 15 regional publications throughout North America. Her interactive websites: juliegoodnight.com, horsemaster.tv, and her channel on youtube.com reaches an even wider audience. Julie is also the International Spokesperson for the Certified Horsemanship Association—known as CHA. In 2008 she was named Equine Affaire's Exceptional Equestrian Educator--one of only three awards ever given. Julie resides near Salida, Colorado, at her private horse ranch with her husband, Rich Moorhead, the CEO of Monarch Ski and Snowboard Area.

Teaching a Horse to Canter/Lope Under Saddle

Dear Julie,

I have started riding my 2-year-old paint gelding. I've had him since he was 3 months old. He's super gentle-almost too gentle. I have taken him out trail riding with other horses, but he needs to learn…

Western Saddle Fit

Dear Julie,

My friends and I have a problem with our saddles rolling over to the side when we get on. My horse in particular has a flat, broad back with wide withers. Any suggestions? I know we are cinching…

Do Horses Prefer One Gender Rider Over the Other?

Hi Julie,

I've got a question about our five-year-old Paint gelding. My wife swears that he prefers men riders to women riders. I'm almost to conclude the same thing, even though I really am skeptical about that. It seems the women who have ridden him, including my wife, have had him act up consistently, and are fearful of him.…

When Your Horse Tries to Stop at the Gate


I have a Tennessee walker and she rides around the arena fine until she passes the gate. Then it happens, she starts to walk sideways in to the gate. I am a new rider so I'm not sure what to do. When I try to correct her she thinks I'm telling her to stop. How do I do it?

Your horse is simply gate sour and wants to stop at the gate and go out of it and back to the barn. All horses have this tendency, if not handled correctly, and it is sometimes…

The Importance of Posting on the Correct Diagonal

Hi Julie,

Try to settle this discussion - please! Is posting on the correct "diagonal" only important in English riding? I always thought it was about the horse's balance in a bend....some say it's just not a "western thing"...and will post in a western saddle, but not with any regard for the diagonal???



You are correct that posting…

Thanks for the invite. I noticed on your website that you like to combine natural horsemanship work together with classical dressage. I know a few people here in Australia that do the same with great results. Will definately be going to look for some of your clips on youtube and to read more of your website. Its a shame we don't have your show over here.

Hi Julie,
I just sent you a request to be your friend. Unfortunately, I clicked too soon. I just wanted to tell you that I really love your show on RFD-TV. I think your training techniques are really really great. I have watched all the biggies and I like yours the best! I have mentioned this to my trainer, a lady from Alaska and now living in AZ, that I really love your style of training and I have taped a few sessions of RFD of yours and put them on a DVD and gave them to her (Karen) so she could see your style. I think that has encouraged her to get her certification for teaching as you have.

Thanks for the really great lessons!
