Because of the horse I’m not the person I used to be.

 

 

Born in Australia, Warwick Schiller moved to the US in 1990 at the age of 23 to pursue his dream of becoming a horse trainer. His passion at the time was for the sport of reining. He was heavily involved in reining for 20 years, during which time he discovered his next passion, teaching.

Lateral Flexion

Bridling Practise

This episode starts with teaching your horse to back away from you. This is a great exercise to do with horses that have learned to be pushy or rude. Learn how your body language and presence is the deciding factor in whether your horse chooses to respect you or not.

This episode concludes with bridling practise. Learn both how to teach an untrained horse to accept a bridle so that there never is a bridling problem and learn how to fix the bridling issues you may have with your older horse. The bridling process is broken down into as many steps as possible to make it as easy to accomplish as possible.

Because of the horse you can discover who you truly are.

I was fascinated by horses since the first moment I have first seen one. I don't remember how old I was, but I knew I have to get involved with them. At first the closest I could get to "riding on a horse" was going on a kids carousel in a park in the center of Prague. My grandmother used to take me there. To me the horses there felt almost real because they were a lot bigger than me. Soon I started dreaming about riding on real horses. I was able to start riding on real horses when I got 12 years old. When I was 16 I started competing. First I used to ride parkour, a lot later I switched to western. During that time I had all sort of coaches and learned with many different...

 Desensitize Your Horse To A Rope 

In this episode we first show how to teach a horse to circle its handler. More importantly,how h we sow to fix problems that always seem to show up when a person first teaches this to a new horse. 

Next, we work on desensitizing a horse to a rope in a number of ways. The first one is how to get a horse used to something spinning over its head. The second involves using the rope to get a horse used to pressure around its belly (very good to do before introducing a young horse to a cinch or helping to fix a cinchy horse) and accepting pressure in other sensitive areas. After that we cover how to get a horse used to having its feet handled using the rope to make things as safe as possible for the handler.

Because of the horse I have been able to go to some really interesting places and meet some great people.
