Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: The Do’s and Don’ts of Working with ‘Pushy’ Horses

I used to have a horse who would be classified as “pushy”. It was partially my doing for being pretty lenient with cookie-giving (I’m a sucker, what can I say?), and it wouldn’t have been an issue if he wasn’t the type to want to escalate things when boundaries were mentioned.

Suffice it to say I wish I would have had access to the resources — even five years ago! — that are now readily available at my fingertips online.

Now, let me also put in a disclaimer here that not all training advice is good advice. One balancing factor that comes with the increased availability of information is knowing how to sift good information from not-so-good. Common sense and horse sense should govern well here, but it’s always good to do your research on who is teaching, what their credentials are, and what their results have been.

Noelle Floyd’s Equestrian Masterclass often shares shortened clips from their various curriculum on YouTube, and this one contains lots of useful pointers from Tik Maynard. Have a look and maybe pick up a few new clues!

Is your horse challenged by GI tract imbalances, diarrhea, and/or ulcers?

Neigh-Lox® Advanced provides a scientifically advanced blend of ingredients that work synergistically to maintain your horse’s digestive tract in peak condition by supporting both the gastrointestinal tissues and the beneficial bacteria that populate the gut. Maintaining a healthy digestive tract reduces the risk of colonic and gastric ulcers, colic, laminitis related to hindgut acidosis, and oxidative stress that damages digestive tract tissues themselves. Horses with a well-balanced GI tract have good appetites, absorb more nutrients from their diets, maintain a strong immune system, and stay healthier.

The horse that matters to you matters to us®.
