My Your Horsemanship Mission, from Jason Webb

“My goal is to give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to develop a secure, positive partnership with your horse, and the training tools to overcome any problems along the way.

Your Horsemanship Online is designed to empower riders of all levels and aspirations, whether you simply want a safe hack that is a pleasure to handle, or whether you’re a competition rider looking to excel in your chosen discipline.

I have developed a comprehensive online training resource that is easy to navigate, understand, and learn from. The video library holds over 250 training videos on the foundations of training horses, together with a growing re-education section related to common problems such as loading, rearing, napping and spooking.

As a Your Horsemanship member, you will never be alone on your journey. There are opportunities to ask questions and chat with myself, and fellow members, via the Training Chat forum, monthly webinars, live demonstrations and Q&A Chats. Clinics and Camps provide a great way to meet up with fellow members and work through areas of the program under my guidance.

NEW! Monthly live demonstrations and Q&A chats as part of your membership! Check out these snippets from the monthly live demonstrations and Q&A Chats, that are now an amazing addition to all our memberships, including the new Live Online Membership, new for 2020!"

The Courses

1: Pre-training Knowledge

Before getting into the video lessons in Foundation Training, this course gives you some bite-sized background reading in the fundamentals. Gain an understanding of the nature of the horse, how they learn and how to be an effective horseman. We advise that all students familiarise themselves with these simple principles before commencing any training with a horse. Topics include:

  • Body language
  • Equipment
  • Sensitising and Desensitising
  • Timing and Feel

Also include is a free eBook to accompany the course. "I have had people that have been in horses all their lives and have still gained some knowledge from this short but extremely important book" - Jason Webb

Sample Pre-Training Lesson: Respect and Trust

Respect and Trust

I like to think about trust and respect in the context of horse training in the following ways:

  • Respect = Gained by being the leader and able to initiate movement
  • Trust = Gained by being non threatening and accepted as part of the social group

It is important to consider both trust and respect when working with horses. It is a fine balance between the two. Think back to the horse’s social dynamics in a herd. Although it is said that there are no equals, in a herd there are certainly horses that choose to be with other specific horses despite this hierarchical structure. Try and become the one your horse would ‘choose’ to be with. You want to maintain their respect by ensuring you can move them with a gesture, then a ‘tell’ should you need to, yet you want them to have trust and confidence in you.

It is a fine line, and it is sometimes helpful to draw it as such it in your imagination. On one side of the line you have trust and on the other you have respect. If you have to ‘tell’ your horse something with a wave of a rope or a flick of a stick then you may have moved that line into the respect zone but away from the trust zone. You have to redress this balance by releasing and rewarding when the horse answers correctly thus reaffirming to them that you a fair and consistent leader.

Spending time ‘familiarising’ yourself with your horse is essential in gaining trust but to do this until they are so familiar they feel they can invade your space and push you around means you have gone deep into the trust zone but away from respect. Think about the following diagram to help you with where you need to be in order to be a good leader for your horse.

2: Foundation Training

This is a comprehensive video library of 150 lessons following Jason’s starting program. It has everything from how to approach your horse, to essential ridden controls. Follow the Foundation Training program through from start to finish and learn how to work with a horse from first principles to starting, hacking out confidently to correct schooling under saddle; or you can just dip in to the topics you need most, and go back to them at any time if you need another look.

Just a few topics from this huge course:

  • Meeting: First Approach
  • Catching: The Catching Process
  • Desensitisation: Dealing with Flight
  • Tying Up: Testing the Tie
  • Mounting: Saddle and Move
  • Introducing Movement: Basic Transitions
  • Out and About: Gates

Each video also includes links to other relevant lessons and the topic in the Chat Forum, and is accompanied by a printable PDF summary of the key points of the lesson for ease of reference.

Full Lesson Preview: Personal Space

Personal Space

Goal: To teach your horse to be aware of your personal space and be able to stand independent of you.

Forum Topic Link: Available to Members

Recommended Prior Learning (available to Members):

  • Meeting: Contact
  • Meeting: First Approach

Purpose: This exercise is to be used if your horse makes the mistake of crowding your personal space. It also indirectly trains certain movements, such as hind end control, by making your horse aware of how they should be when around you.

Equipment Needed: Halter, 12-foot rope

Method:

  • Define your personal space as the circle of space around your body that you can reach with your outstretched arm.
  • Have your horse in a halter with a long rope. Use your free hand or end of the lead rope to move them away and around your body at a distance of about 10 foot.
  • Keep the energy low and just get them relaxed and moving in a rhythmical, fluid manner.
  • If they come into your personal space, do as little as possible but as much as necessary to get them out eg. raise your hand, tap the air with your hand, stamp your feet or any other body movement that sends them away.
  • When they are back out where you want them go back to being passive in your body language and let them settle back into a rhythmical, fluid gait.

Tips:

  • Define your personal space as the circle of space surrounding you at the distance of an outstretched arm Think of it as your ‘horse field’ in which you are projecting invisible energy to keep your horse out and you safe
  • Do as little as possible but as much as necessary to keep your horse from stepping in to it
  • Never step back, it should be your horse who is moving their feet not you

Topics for the demo are led by suggestions from members and by what horses Jason is working with. The demonstrations give a rare opportunity to watch Jason working through real problems as they happen. The live-streamed Q&A gives members a chance to ask questions about the demo, and about any issues they are having with their own horses.

Competition: Challenge Cups

Members are also able to test their progress by doing the ground and ridden “Challenges” on the website. You can even enter our regular bi-monthly Challenge Cup competition!
