This is a great class. Full of exactly the information I needed. I had just experienced my first “incident” of a runaway. Just like Andy says, momentarly, my horse had no brain. This is NOT a young horse, but a very road safe older riding horse (34 yrs old and still working) She was green broke as a 3 yr old, but never driven. I’ve started driving her about 3 months ago. On this day, she just decided that some calves running up to the fence on the road side were something she should be concerned about! Brain went out of gear and we were off to the races. I was able to get the horse under control, using my general horse knowledge, but then I doubted myself as to whether or not I handled it correctly or in the best manner. To be honest, I was afraid to go out again, just because I wanted to KNOW the best way to handle runaways. This class told me exactly how to handle the situation. Andy does a fantastic job of covering all the bases. Thankfully, according to Andy, I did pretty good after all, in handling my situation. He gave me the confidence to head out again, but this time, better equipped. Yes, we did go right out again, after I watched the video, with success 🙂 Andy, thank you sooo much! Now I’m going to buy the class on How to drive through the spook so I am better prepared.
Thanks for the great feedback Diane!
Just proves that no horse is too old to have an ‘incident’. I hope get as much from Driving Past the Spook as you did in this class.
I’d love it if you were to share your review on the product page for this class: https://coachmansdelight.com/runaway/
The page we’re on right now is mainly for those who’ve already signed up for the class, so it doesn’t really show up when people are thinking about the class but haven’t signed up. Perhaps your words will encourage another driver to get as much out of it as you did.
Andy, I will be happy to share on the link provided.
I enjoyed the class – but my real problem isn’t so much a bolting horse, as a very headstrong 30 year old pony who thinks she should decide our pace – So around home I’m constantly nagging her to speed up, but when I take her somewhere new, I can’t make her walk. I can stop her ok, and steer her just fine, but she gets ants in her pants and goes faster and faster, even more so as she gets tired. I’ve tried half halts, and circling, but they seem to make it worse. Any ideas?
I would suggest working with the Developing the Walk lesson plan. Besides helping to create a great walk, that lesson plan is very good for getting ponies to relax, take their time, and be patient.
Thoroughly enjoy your classes! I am in California, on a ranch 1 1/2 hours from a loaf of bread, so this is so convenient and easy!! I drive a Belgium cross mule in pleasure, cones, hazards, etc. Keep the classes coming Andy!! Kelly M
