To encourage your horse to try even harder consider training with 2 types of treats. I use a general one and a ‘special’ treat for when they do something really well.
The general treat is usually something that isn’t high in sugar or fat. You can use a lot of it! 🙂
Options for the general treat include:
- Chaff (chopped up hay)
- Some of your horse’s daily feed
- Low GI horse pellets
