Rick Gore Horsemanship

Visit Rick Gore's Horse Site:
--Rick is a student of the horse. I have over 450 free videos on Youtube about horses. I believe in and practice "Natural Horsemanship". I ride mainly western and don't use or promote spurs, bits, or whips. Reins are only one cue for the horse. Using the entire body helps the horse understand. I define riding as a human and horse working together for the enjoyment of both. Pain and fear should not be part of the equation. If you expect feel good advice, you will be disappointed. 95% of all my answers will include the problem is you and not your horse. About 90% of most answers that I give out are on my web site, so if you read it you will probably answer your own question and may learn a few other things. If you ask me a question that I answer on my site or video I will send your question to the question pool.

Bre Darby

Questions regarding how to resolve barn disputes (between you and the manager/you and another rider), how to find a great barn, buying a horse (scams & red flags/age, breeds, etc.), what to look for in a trainer (for either the horse, you, or both) can also be answered here, as well as questions regarding behavior and psychology (how a horse sees and thinks about you and the world). I can answer questions about behavior and how to correct behaviors on the ground and some under saddle. I can also answer questions regarding the English Pleasure & Equitation discipline. Please note: Feel free to ask questions about bits but be aware that I don't support the use of harsh or severe bits and will generally recommend using softer bits on horses. I school in snaffle bits only.
