which she took

Spanish step. Training in the hands in motion. Training on horseback.

For the next step, it is necessary that the horse is able to actively step forward if you are promoting it for an occasion under the chin, moving side by side. In this case, the horse’s head should be in the position corresponding to the collection, i.e. the neck is raised upward, the back of the head is rounded, the horse is not strained, the line of the head is approximately 45 ° from the vertical.

Spanish step. Stretching and training in place

We start with a stretch. Just as a person cannot just pick up and do the splits without training, so a horse cannot lift his leg up to the height we need without training. Therefore, we start with the main thing. We stand facing the horse so that our left shoulder was opposite the left shoulder of the horse. Those. not right in front of her, but a little on the side.

In no case should a horse be scared, waved with a whip, or punished if it rips a leg out of your hands. Voice does not raise! Continue reading

Acceptable Punishment Methods

The first and most effective way of punishment is additional work – you can additionally load the horse with work to make it clear that the more she stubbornly, the more she will have to work. The fact that she was taken to the stall after work should be perceived by the horse as an encouragement for the work done.
The second method of exposure is voice. Unlike dogs, horses are less responsive to the meaning of spoken words, but they are very sensitive to the intonation with which the words are spoken. A harsh word can indicate to the animal that it is doing something wrong.
In some cases, hand spanking is acceptable – for example, if your horse has a habit of biting. Many underestimate the danger of this habit, but it can lead to very serious injuries. Therefore, all manifestations of such behavior should be suppressed. A few Continue reading
