Turning Scary Things into Fun Things

 

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

You can use ‘touch’ to teach your horse tricks like hug, kiss and fetch (and many others) but you can also use ‘touch’ to help your horse accept and approach scary objects.

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.

PS Keep an eye out for our audience of cows!
