Transition from Training level to First Level + Young Horse = Frustration
by Sarah Miller
If you have never trained a young horse, never started one under saddle, never been the first person on his back
then you do not know the real joy of working with a horse. When you see the young horse has gotten what you’ve
been trying to teach him its amazing. I have trained a number of young horses; it seems I just can’t get away from
the young one. Even now I find myself thinking “Maybe I’ll get that youngster I saw at so and so’s farm, or on line.”
Then reality sets in and I remember, “Stupid, you’re working with a young horse now that is trying your ever fiber.”
It’s not that Duncan is a bad horse or not trainable, it’s that he is just four years old. It’s hard enough to take a
horse, any horse, from Training Level to First Level, there is the fact that you have to teach the horse that not only
does he have to walk, trot, and canter in a balance frame and maintain the rhythm; but now he has to lengthen these
gates and then compress them back to a working gate. That he has to respond to leg pressure that is contrary to a
horse’s survival instinct and move away from it. But do all this and still maintain the bridge over his back, the rhythm
of the gate and be flexed at the pole. Now, throw in the young horse, the teeth coming in, the unbalance gates because his rump is over his withers, his neck is never the same from one day to the next. And now you see that it is
no wonder most riders will buy older horses.
Most of you out there know Duncan a.k.a. The Highlander, he’s been doing training level most of the year. We
started working on First Level sometime ago with the plan of showing First Level at the end of the year. Not Going To Happen. When I purchased Duncan I told the breeder I was down sizing, my other horse being 18.2. I
wanted something a little smaller, well Duncan will be smaller. He is just shy of 18 hands now. His withers have not
been over his rump since Christmas. He has been steadily growing all year. He couldn’t find his hind end with a
road map right now. His neck can’t seem to decide if it’s going to be short and tick or long and willowy. All six of
the teeth a four year old get have come in, all at the same time and very slowly. You have to feel sorry for the
horse. And yet you still have to work him. You have to help him find his way though this, help him find his balance
and not get frustrated. Not get angry because the horse won’t go to the bit, because his teeth hurt, or he thinks
they hurt. Not get upset because he won’t come round, or because he ignores your half-halt and then transitions on
the other side of the 20 meter circle, ten strides from where you asked for it. You have to set the horse up to succeed, you have to find something you know he is good at and after you’ve worked though all the other frustrating
things that have gone so horrorable bad get him to do that one thing that he is incredible at. For Duncan, when he
is good he gets to canter, but we end our work outs with leg yield. The horse can’t find his balance right now if you
lead him to it, but he can do a leg yield that any judge would give him an 8 on. Go figure.
So, the next time you get frustrated with your horse for not getting the correct lead in the simple change across
the center line, or for missing the transition at “A”, or just plain has a bad day, just remember all horses have days
where they are just plan ‘young horses’.
