Halter Training a HorseHolder training of a horse
Holder training for the older foal and the grown horse
A number of my learners have not yet been educated to receive the halter and have asked for my instruction. Naturally, there are many ways to break a halter. You call it "breaking the halter", because you have to be very cautious with the horse or the filly, because you can encounter opposition quite easy, which cannot be overcome by the pure power of the horse struggling to escape.
They must keep away from the drag and exercise the horse never to use drag in reaction to a directed demand from a traction of the guiding line. It' s very interesting to me that we only see very few DVD's about Neckholder Training of a young horse. A lot of skills and instructors are needed who will not be frightened by throwing themselves into a battle with the horse or filly or setting a horse through a trial in which he will learn that if he gets into a battle with the instructor he will los.
That' why it's known as a halter break. A lot of coaches don't seem to be happy if the horse hasn't seen this match and loses against the coach. A lot of people believe that it is imperative for a ferocious horse to be taught that the coach is strong and wins every match the horse could present.
In this way the horse will be fail-safe and will always have the halter respected, which is a good thing; but this way of doing it is useless and violent. As a rule, what I have seen is a delicate procedure and not necessary at all. The horse must learnt from these techniques that no matters what happens or where it wants to go, it must do nothing but hear the halter.
Every single moment you work with opposition, you need a great deal of equestrian riding skills and expertise in being stubborn, straightforward, authoritarian, friendly and contemporary. Normally a horse on a farm will be taught how to run more gently because they are teaching a filly in their everyday lives.
As a result, the child feels secure in a person's arm while carrying a holster. Very little training really teaches the filly how to run without any kind of breakage. But if it is not done in these early phases, the colt will gain a certain amount of autonomy and autonomy, and it will then have to undergo a trial that I have seen many times in the lives of those who felt that a colt has to go through: to learn that at a certain point in the colt's history it has no option, that it is afraid and struggling.
Since I had to educate many older colts and even grown -up stallions for leadership, I devised a technique that required no training by taking a horse's strength, daunting it or getting into a struggle with it and making it think I was strong.
My decision to do this is based on the fact that my horse is a good horse for company walking. When I take him to where the delicacies are kept, I do the free routine with a halter and a guiding wire, and I always work within his tolerances. Within a very short period of space of time it is in the horse mind, for some odd reasons, to be prepared to hear the halter beyond its moods, desires and anxieties.
With the fail-safe knob that you want to put on your horse, so that it is regarded as halftrained, I get through freedom without a turn, then play the bucket game and practice the overpainting drills. First of all I come to the point where I can guide the horse with my hand slightly on the nostrils, make him turn slightly to the right and to the right at one point and also stop.
When I hold it, I have to be able to draw his skull down by applying slight force. All I want to do is eliminate the horse's instincts of wanting to oppose the pressures of a train. As soon as I have the horse totally courteous to eat and companions who of course go with me, I then instruct him to do the same things, this times to feel the cable and the train on his skull.
Then it becomes naturally and the horse will not know how to be resistent. Next, the pail game makes the horse familiar with the fact that you can manipulate his mind without violence because he likes to feed out of the pail. When he holds the pail, the goal is to instruct him that he must hear you when you ask him to get out of the pail, give up food, and await approval to come back and ate.
It must be done in a way that makes the horse more connected to you. As the horse eats out of the pail and allows you to rub its scalp, you can lie down on a halter. Continue from there with the halter to take his skull out of the pail and put his skull into the pail, but this pail with a slight tension on the cord.
Then you can start with the overpainting exercises and guiding from behind with a halter and a guide wire. A horse is fail-safe when it no longer resists a move.
