The Making of Great Horses & Horseman


In the beginning a horse does not see the reason, meaning or purpose in what we are asking him to do. Through repetition he learns what we want or do not want of him. In my line of work as a clinician I am presented with many tough horses that are deemed un-trainable. People always ask for the secret in training that type of horse? There is no secret. Horses respond positively to effective training techniques.


The best horsemen are casual around their horses. Training in a relaxed fashion and with an effective process

entails working with the horse, not against him. If you follow this formula positive results are inevitable. In public demonstrations with "unrideable" horses, time after time the horses have amazed on-lookers by quickly relating to positive training. In just a matter of an hour the first-rides were accomplished without a bronc-ride or mishap.


The key is to be an effective trainer with effective techniques. If you are not effective, no matter how good your intentions are you might as well be looking west for the sunrise. Like the horse, you must be willing to change and work to have the first ride an important one and remember from good beginnings things tend to come naturally. --------- Craig Cameron

2012 is going to be an exciting year for EXCA!
A new team has been put together committed to the future and success of the association.
We have many new ideas about to be put in place.
I have been asked to step up and lead the National Advisory Board. What this means is that I am making myself available for members and NAB members to give their valuable input that I will act upon when necessary. I would like to encourage everyone to participate in expressing your ideas to help improve our club in the future.
