    Hi – I’m Larry Trocha.

    Over many years working with cutting, reining and working cow horses, I’ve developed a successful training program designed to teach horses to stop, spin, rollback, change leads and work cattle.

    I’ve also helped many clients fix their horse’s bad behavior problems; bucking, rearing, biting, kicking & spooking.

    I’m happy to share this specialized knowledge with you through my series of Horse Training DVDs, Online Horse Training Videos and my Horse Training Tips Insider.

      I HAVE A 13 YEAR OLD TB CROSS THAT I BOUGHT. A YEAR AGO AND HE WILL NOT “WHOA”. OR REIN. PLOW REIGNING WEARS ME OUT AND IS NO FUN. THE NO WHOA IS DANGEROUS. I HAVE HAD HIM TAKE OFF WITH MY 14 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER AND NOT STOP TILL THEY ALMOST HIT A TREE. I SENT HIM TO A TRAINER AND STILL HAS THE SAME PROBLEM. SO I AM LOOKING FOR A METHOD TO TEACH HIM MYSELF

      • Cara says

        I would watch Larry’s videos and enlist the help of a professional trainer to help you work through the videos. Sounds like this horse is dangerous. Get some additional help so that you wouldn’t get hurt. You may want to consider getting a different horse with a calmer disposition so that you can enjoy riding. A hospital bill or permanent injury is just not worth it. Some breeds are just more high strung and require more training and riding time to maintenance their issues.

      • Angela says

        For the ‘no whoa’ part of it, you should just make him run until he’s ready to walk then, before he drops to a walk himself, say ‘whoa’ in a commanding manner and pull on the reins a little bit. sink into the saddle as much as you can to make him understand that when you say whoa and pull on the reins, you mean it. just do it over and over, until he understand what whoa means.
        and is he trained to neck rein? or was he just trained to direct rein (plow rein)? there are some TB cross horses that are ridden Western and English both, but only trained to direct rein.

      I am trying to build confidence in a 10 year old Leopard Appaloosa. I have had him about a year and he has came a long way, but still will not send into a trailer…he will follow me into the stock trailer to eat. He has gotten very herd bound now and gets very anxious if he is left in the round pen alone even though the other horses are within a few hundred feet but he can’t see them. I believe that he has been treated VERY GOOD at some point in his lifetime and I believe he has been treated VERY BAD in his lifetime, also. I don’t know if he has ever been broke to ride. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!!!

        well if he’s herd bond he has a buddy in the herd so find out wht horse that is and load that horse then ur horse in the trailer then back the other horse out of the trailer the go to a show or a trail

      • Angela says

        Are you planning on training him? Because if you are, then why not train him to ride, then worry about the trailer part. I used to have a 2yr old that was scared spitless of trailers. I figured, well why not train him first? Let the matter rest with the trailer for about three weeks, then try again. It worked. Some horses just work better with longer breaks in between training periods than other horses do.
