What are your crazy horse training moments? . Rapidash was the first colt I watched, and helped, my Dad train as a weanling and up. He is quite the character who seriously thought he was a dog. Played fetch, dug holes, and slept with his legs up on the brick wall surrounding his corral (many neighbors called worried about a dead horse ๐Ÿคฃ) . I learned a lot about how young inexperienced horses react and to work through it. . One of my crazier horse moments happened when I was around 6 or 7 years old. Rapidash was around 2 years old. I was brushing him down in the coral, barefoot as usual, and feeding him weeds. He was so calm and being very sweet. I led him over to the fence, climbed up, and slid onto his soft, brown back. We sat there for a long while until my Dad calmly walked up to us. He calmly asked what I was doing. I assured him, "It's ok Daddy, he told me I could." He laughed and carefully helped me down, knowing this paint pony had never had anyone on his back before. . . #painthorse #pony #southcarolina #americanquarterhorse #tennesseewalkinghorse #utah #horsebackriding #horse #horsetraining

I always get a super enthusiastic greeting from Gris. They have free choice hay and already had their feed tonight so she knows there is nothing else coming...its just different with herโค...when you get lucky enough to have that one horse that is so connected, you get it. #countrymusic #showjumping #cheval #stable #farmhousestyle #horsesofinstagram #equestriansofinstagram #horsegirl #tennesseewalkinghorse #greyhorse #horsebackriding #pferd #cavallo #gaitedhorse #pony #cutepony #mare #paard #horsephotography #horseaddict #equine #horseshow #dressage #liberty #naturalhorsemanship #horsemanship #equestrian #horsetraining #partnership

Feeling blessed. Feet up, cuppa, Amazonโ€™s The Widow, warm weather, and a beautiful stormy sky. Stella at my feet, Chloe on the top of the hutch, the little boys at the side door, and the big boys out the double doors. A wonderful day at The Farm. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿก #farmhouse #countryliving #tennesseewalkinghorse #minihorse #horsebarn #nigeriandwarfgoats #teacupyorkie #calicocat #rescues #farmhousekitchen #breakfastroom #antiques #frenchdoors
Chief is such a rockstar ๐Ÿ’• he's always a good boy but he's been an extra good boy lately. Yesterday I took all three on a trail ride and decided to gallop through the valley. Chief seemed to really enjoy it, I just kissed to him and away we went! It was so fun having the other two gallop along with us. I was so bummed my video of it was all messed up.

Staff spotlight: Meryl Kruskopf is a physical science technician here at Yosemite National Park. She helps to monitor both air and water quality in the park by maintaining monitoring equipment and collecting water samples. Merylโ€™s love of problem solving and passion for natural resources drove her to study environmental engineering at Cornell University. She first came to Yosemite as an intern last year doing data management and meadow monitoring through the Student Conservation Association and Americorps internship program. Her favorite part of her job this year was helping to ensure reliable particulate matter data (air quality data) was available during the Ferguson Fire so that the public could protect their health. Meryl has found a great way to take her passion for air quality into her personal life: by riding her unicycle to work! She believes we can each make a difference in air quality by driving less. #tennesseewalkinghorse #tennesseehd #tennesseeweddingphotographer #tennesseevolunteers #knoxvilletennessee #tennesseehair #tennesseeriver #wildernessculture #outdoorfamily #campingstyle

Torn between wanting her to grow up and stay little forever ๐Ÿ’”
These two are turning in to a good team! Kim is learning the gaited horse thing and Birdie is more than happy to teach her. Birdie's even starting to get some nice reach and headshake as her top line is strengthening! #twh #tennesseewalkinghorse #gaitedhorse #gaited #ssh #spottedsaddlehorse #rehab #horse #ride
The Farmhouse is a happy mess today. I sat on the kitchen floor at 3:00 am and cleaned out the pantry and the baking cupboard. I ran all the now empty Ball Jars through the dishwasher. At some point trying to sleep just makes me focus on pain so better to feel productive. I left the wall paper and tools on the table just feet away from the wall that needs three more strips to be finished. My subtlety astounds me. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Chloe is guarding the master bedroom. Stella is napping on my lap on the sofa. Outside it is 76f. The goats and I had a cuddle fest after lunch. Chocolate now gives kisses as well as Shadow. Trooper is doing really well with being free to choose between breakfast and lunch. He is then stalled for a few hours. Then free again until dinner. He is longing to run in the back paddocks and it makes me sad but he cannot. We had hoped to fence the dirt paddock this weekend however we are expecting 10 days of warm but rainy weather so it may have to wait. I console myself knowing he has his buddy Einy, freedom after months of stall rest, is not in pain, and he has me. We had a 1 hour love fest in the paddock yesterday. He is a 952 pound cuddle bug. And Einy is calming down a bit. Happy to have his playmate back and taking cues from T that cuddling is a good thing. The warm weather and a conscious attitude adjustment have helped me fall in love with life again. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿกโ˜ฎ๏ธ #farmhouse #farmhousekitchen #farmhouseliving #horsebarn #tennesseewalkinghorse #minihorse #calicocat #teacupyorkie #nigeriandwarfgoats #rescues #paddocks #countryliving

Lunging! . Lunging is a great skill for you and your horse. This exercise is similar to round pen work by "co trolling space and establishing the respect and leadership required." (Wilhelm, 2005, p. 61) . The tools that I use while lunging are a four-knot rope halter, a lunge whip, and a 16'-20' lunge line. I like the four-knot halter because it uses pressure points the the horse can easily release themselves when they give into pressure. . I also don't like huge long lunge lines because the more line I run them out on the more force and momentum an explosive horse has to use against me. I also like rope lines instead of flat lines because rope lines don't cut into hands like flat lines do. (I have pictures of my burned and melted hands to remind myself to use safe lunging equipment and practices) . As my favorite horse trainer Charles Wilhelm (2005) says "The nose should always be in toward you (even if just slightly)" (p. 62). If your horse is looking at you, he/she is paying attention to you and lunging is an exercise to focus a horse's attention to you. . When I lunge I stand in one place to prevent teaching my horses to pull against me, which leads to dragging. I have been dragged many times. Sorry but all my 5'2" awesomeness does not stop a 1,000 lbs animal. . Here are some lunging tips. 1. Stand in one place. 2. If they move, resume lunging them where they flee to. 3. If they act out (are naughty) make them back up, side step, change directions (a lot), and then immediately resume lunging (don't reward them by stopping for a breather when they are naughty) 4. Practice stopping . Ask any questions you have about lunging. If you and your horse are having problems, let's try and solve them. . . #twh #southcarolina #americanquarterhorse #tennesseewalkinghorse #utah #horsebackriding #horse #horsetraining #painthorse #buckskinpaint #buckskin #western #mare #palominohorse #palomino #lunging . . .

I feel fairly productive! I deep cleaned both water troughs with apple cider vinegar and water then refilled with fresh, cold water. Bryson and I had a great training session where we worked on being rewarded for touching the cone on command of โ€œtouch.โ€ It was a huge problem for him with stationary targets that he just kept touching even while he was chewing to get more treats, so heโ€™s now learning that he only gets rewarded when heโ€™s asked to specifically touch the cone. He caught on very quickly. He and the goats spend the aftermath of the sessions searching for lost hay pellets๐Ÿ˜‚ I also discovered that he LOVES his withers scratched tonight, so the clip at the end is him scratching me back as Iโ€™m scratching his withers. He cracks me up. Iโ€™m also so proud of the advances heโ€™s made with his fear of water. He didnโ€™t move away from me while I cleaned the troughs today even when I dumped the water and it ran on his feet. He even will drink while the hose is filling the trough up. These things were impossible only a few months ago๐Ÿ’™ weโ€™re reworking on fly spray and heโ€™s slowly remembering itโ€™s not scary! Iโ€™m so proud of this boy
After fighting my depression this past year and a half, I'm finally getting back into my photography after a long hiatus ๐Ÿ’• thank you, Spring!

Groundwork with Gris. :) I learned very quickly that Gris keeps her head very well when she is given the courtesy of time to think...whether that be between steps, when assessing something new, being left by buddies or coming in and getting into work mode. Ground work gets her focused and when her mind is on me she is all there. Some very smart people told me that you should always have the horse you want under saddle on the ground each time you ride. This past weekend at a clinic we came out in the morning to snow and rain...๐Ÿคข. The pens outside were out in the open and Gris is a bit of a princess...ok a big princess๐Ÿฆ„...so she wasn't too happy. We hauled all our tack inside so we could get ready out of the weather and she was fired up. Brace and antsy were going from bad to worse. I dont lunge a horse to burn off energy...and honestly, you can't run Gris to quiet...she just goes up and up... but I do use groundwork to get focus. I lead her dancing self into the arena, did 5 minutes of connecting and walked out to saddle my perfectly quiet horse. Ground work is such a useful tool when there is a purpose in it. We often stop and relax in a sweet spot. Standing still is not her strongest quality and taking these breaks to relax on her own are very useful. #countryliving #farmhousestyle #countrymusic #showjumping #cheval #stables #horsetraining #dressage #liberty #naturalhorsemanship #equestriansofinstagram #horsemanship #horsesofinstagram #horseaddict #pony #cutepony #mare #greyhorse #horsebackriding #horseshow #horsephotography #tennesseewalkinghorse #gaitedhorse #gallop #trailriding #horsegirl #showhorse #equine #farmtotable #horse

Some turn-out time together for the palomino boys โค . . . #painthorse #tennesseewalkinghorse #apha #palomino #turnout
Look at the checklist I posted earlier today and think about the three individual steps. Watch as his left front leg steps directly sideways each step. Then watch as the right front crosses over the left front. Then look at the hind legs. They do not quite have the correct pivot foot through all of this but his left hind should be staying still while his right hind steps forward around. Less pull in the reins and a tad more forward motion will fix that. #haunchturns #teamkezzie #kranch #kvidtranch #horsetraining #traininghorses #horsebackriding #ridinghaunchturns #trailhorse #equitationhorse #tennesseewalkinghorse #twh #ridinglessons #allaroundhorse #horses
