SMILE – PART 3
Continue to repeat the lessons and gradually ask and work towards higher lip lifts to earn the mark\reward. Add a verbal cue whenever you are ready.
It is worth noting that sometimes it’s a good idea to wait for your horse to stop chewing before you repeat your cue. It is hard for them to smile sometimes while they are eating. I would use a soft, quick-to-eat treat when teaching this.
