Beginners Guide to Horse Training eBook + FREE Gift
If you are reading this book, you are either looking to buy a horse or maybe you
have already acquired a horse. Either way the will need to be trained. Whether
you do it yourself or hire a trainer to train the horse for you.
You already know the cost of purchasing a horse can range from about $1000 to
$20,000. You may have estimated the cost of feeding, shoeing, and health care
to run you about $2,000 per year. That $2,000 per year is if you have property in
the country and will keep the horse with you. If you are planning on boarding
your horse, then you can expect an additional $2,000 to $3,000 per year.
Assuming you are planning on riding your horse an average of 350 hours per
year, you will want to include in all those expenses the cost of your health
insurance and possible time off from work. Since you are asking yourself,
Why? I will explain. There are thousands of people each year that receive
injuries from horseback riding. Twenty-five percent of those injuries happen to
children who are 16 years of age and younger. Many of the head injuries lead to
The brain injuries can cause serious damages that have a lifelong effect.
Unfortunately we are not talking about injuries caused riding rodeos. The
majority of these mishaps occur during recreational riding. Eighty percent of the
fatal accidents occur at normal horse speeds and are not caused because the
horse bucked or reared up.
As it turns out you are safer riding a motorcycle than you are on the back of a
horse. Researchers tell us that motorcyclists average 7,000 hours of riding time
per serious accident, while horseback riders can expect an accident to happen
for every 350 hours of riding time.
The best method of stopping injury accidents is education. A properly trained
horse is less likely to misbehave, and he will be a much safer animal to ride if he
has been taught not to behave in a way that will cause a serious injuries. These
actions will include biting, kicking, or running away with a rider. A well-trained
horse will be much more patient with the odd habits of the untrained person.
Riding on the back of an untrained horse is like driving a car that does not have
any brakes. You can take them out for a test run, but you may come back dead.
Even thought the horses intentions are good, if he doesnt have experience, you
are riding around with a creature that weighs over a thousand pounds and likes
to do whatever he wants. As an investment, horses are more of a liability. The
horse has the potential of hurting someone and his resale value is next to
If you have an untrained horse, he can be dangerous. You probably didnt buy
him just to put him out to pasture and get fat and lazy. Just remember training
your horse makes your horse more accessible to you as well as being useful and
safer to be around.
If you dont seem to have enough time to train a horse, you can hire a trainer.
Depending on the training the horse needs, training can take anywhere from two
months to a year to be trained. The end results you will have a horse that is well
trained. However you will still be untrained unless you are already an
experienced rider and just dont have the time to train your own horse. If you are
not an experienced rider, you are not allowed to participate in the training of your
horse. This means you will have to find training for yourself.
For a whole lot less money than you will pay for a trainer, you can train a horse
on your own. You will both be learning at the same time. Of course the horse
will not be rideable for a portion of that time, but you will learn some things
before you get on the back of that horse.
Here are some tips for the novice horseback rider.
