    1. Hi Alex,

      The first trick I like to teach my horses is to touch an item with their nose. It’s simple to teach and the horse will learn all the basics of trick training.

      It is also the beginning of tricks like hug, kiss and fetch. I use a pool noodle on the end of a whip. Here’s a video I made about this: http://youtu.be/A_kyklhfbxs

      Have fun 🙂

      Jain, Trigger & Bella.
