Solving Horse Problems, Trick Training Tips

Turning Scary Things into Fun Things

One of the best tricks to teach your horse is ‘touch’. It is SO simple but has many uses.

You can use ‘touch’ to help your horse accept and approach scary objects.

It works like magic!

In this video Bella and I were practising walking onto a plastic board. She was okay when the board was on the ground but when it moved!!…

…SCARY!!!!!

So I used ‘touch’ to get her used to the board and then we turned it into a game.

The SCARY thing became a FUN thing! 🙂

If you only teach your horse one trick… make sure it is ‘touch’. There are SO many things you can do with this simple trick.

    1. Yes 🙂 Most times I train my horses the Cow Audience is watching. I have started doing a bit of training with them because they seem so interested. Jain.
