RETRAINING AT COVEY RUN EVENTING
By Carrie Butler

We retrain many OTTB’s here at Covey Run. They have a special place in my heart. OTTB’s have such heart and a wonderful work ethic. One very common issue with horses coming off the track is that many of these horses have difficulty picking up the right canter lead in the beginning of their new training. This is not a misbehavior on the horse’s part, but most likely a weakness coming from the fact that horses on the track run to the left.

I find that one of the best ways to deal with this is to not get stuck in the “ask for canter, ops wrong lead pull up try again, ops wrong lead” cycle. In the aforementioned scenario, the horse becomes frustrated and confused because they are cantering, which is what the rider is asking. Remember, all this is new to them!

I find that if the horse continually picks up the incorrect lead (either direction) a great training exercise is to continue on the incorrect lead on a 20 meter circle for 1-2 full circles, ask for trot and immediately then for canter. 9 out of 10 times the horse will then pick up the correct lead because they felt off balance circling on the incorrect lead! It is a win win situation because you are on the correct lead and your horse had a positive learning experience!

Training, sales and lesson opportunities can be discussed directly with Carrie Butler at
267 278 5964. For more Tuesday Training Tips from Covey Run, follow us on Facebook and Instagram @coveyruneventing. Visit our website to read our reviews, keep up on our current sales horses and learn a little bit about us. CoveyRunEventing.com

Hi Carrie, I am looking for a new horse, and want to try grace. Can you please pm me?thank you, Kate
Motivated Seller Incantation 8 yo Registered KWPN 16.2h Mare Beautiful bay mare with chrome (Zerona out of Joliette [El Corona]) Everyone is looking for that talented, fancy warmblood at a price point they can afford…. Here she is!! This mare will be competitive in the dressage ring and can move up the levels. Indy is a beautiful mare, with great conformation. Once she starts moving it’s hard to look away. She is easy on the eyes! Her trot is ground covering with excellent reach through her shoulder. Her medium is going to be expressive with lots of suspension. Her canter could be ridden all day. It is up hill and balanced with natural sit. She is schooling shoulder-in and leg yield nicely. She has been to two schooling dressage shows, where she behaved well and in a workman like fashion. She scored in the high 60’s. Indy is a mare with true upper level potential. We see her being successful with a good riding working student in a program with a good dressage trainer or an educated AA working closely with a good trainer. Indy needs to be in a consistent program, right now she is ridden 4-5 days a week and this works well for her. This is a nice mare who needs further training to reach her full potential, which is unlimited in the right program. This is not a mare for an inexperienced rider. She is very sound and has amazing feet. She is currently barefoot. Indy is missing her right eye. This doesn’t bother her in the least and isn’t noticeable when she is going! Please call me to chat so we can see if she sounds like the perfect fit for you!! 267-278-5964 Located Avondale, PA 19311 video: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMSWXKbVz3VGjGmqJ039g7Gr15XN3Xrwd
I had to share this beautiful picture of Dunkin and Zoey. He’s quite the superstar in the show ring and on the trails. We are having so much fun with him and we’re so glad we found him thru Covey Eventing. He does it all!
Thank you Carrie for making buying Focus a wonderful experience!! I never gave it a second thought leaving Focus with you in training for 3 months until the heat broke in Arizona for his arrival. Your weekly updates, pictures and videos made me part of his journey. Can't wait for my boy to arrive this evening and I'll be sure to keep you updated on his progress! I hope your clients know how lucky they are to have you as their trainer! 😊
Thank you Carrie Butler for doing such a fantastic job in selling Ohio for me. Couldn't be happier with how things turned out!
Awesome dressage prospect! 7 yo 16.1+ h cross red G Ohio had it all. Brains, talent and movement! He will easily move up the levels. AA friendly. Has started jumping and likes it. Hacks well. Sound as a pound and barefoot! Avondale pa $8500
