Our horse instructors have years of horse training and many have participated in our own training and workshop programs. However, if you are a new horse breeder and do not have direct contact with a coach, you will need to acquire some basic skills. In the ideal case you can watch how an expert horse man handles a horse and how he works with a secure and healthy horse.
Security is supreme; if you are ever scared, await help. When training a horse, it is very important to protect yourself. When you are near your horse, always keep your boot tight and your foot firmly on. When your horse comes on you for the first moment - and he will do so at least once - you will comprehend why and be thankful for this shelter.
You also need a safety helmet, even if you are not driving. Horse with little or no training are worried about themselves - not about you. The horse can do something not guilty, like lifting his back bone to push a troublesome bow tie away and strike you unintentionally on the top of your skull. Please be sure to wrap your hand in protective clothing and wearing protective clothing.
The horse can't see directly in front of or behind him - that's nature's way of seeing carnivores coming in from both sides - so step aside, next to his shoulders. All of your horse's training will depend on it reacting adequately to stress. If he senses the force of a guide cable, the forward movement will release the force.
As he is bound and tries to move backwards, he finds out that by taking a forward stride and stopping he no longer senses any compression. Keep it on for a few moments or even a few hrs as long as it's calm and in a secure place like a stand - don't turn it out where it can be hanged from knots or uprights.
As soon as he has accepted the holster, fasten a guide wire long enough to wind around his buttocks. Apply just enough force to the end fastened to the holster and the other end in your hands to make it move forward. Once he makes a move, let go of the squeeze.
Soon your horse will know how to move from its hindquarters when it senses the force of the guide cable fastened to the holster. The horse must be accepted by people who use it for both training and regular animal grooming. Get on his shoulders and look at the tail of your horse. When he bars, press the inside of his legs until he reacts to the force.
Replay it on his other forefoot and then on his rears.
