The Art of Taming and Training Wild Horses – Means of Teaching a Horse to Pace and Horsemanship.

Means of Teaching a Horse to Pace

Buckle a four-pound weight around the ancles of his hind legs, (lead is preferable) ride your horse briskly with those weights upon his ankles, at the same time, twitching each rein of the bridle alternately, by this means you will immediately throw him into a pace.

After you have trained him in this way to some extent, change your lead weights for something lighter; leather padding, or something equal to it, will answer the purpose; let him wear these light weights until he is perfectly trained. This process will make a smooth and easy pacer of any horse.

Horsemanship

The rider should, in the first place, let the horse know that he is not afraid of him. Before mounting a horse, take the rein into the left hand, draw it tightly, put the left foot in the stirrup, and raise quickly.

When you are seated press your knees to the saddle, let your leg, from the knee, stand out; turn your toe in and heel out; sit upright in your saddle, throw your weight forward–one third of it in the stirrups–and hold your rein tight.

Should your horse be scared, you are braced in your saddle and he cannot throw you.
