Horses experience three types of pressure: herd, predator and physical. And just like us, each individual horse can only handle a certain amount of pressure. When that pressure is exceeded, a horse will respond instinctively by freezing, fleeing or fighting.
In this three part series, Scott explains - with demonstration videos - how you can teach your horse to defer to your leadership under pressure. Imagine being on a trail ride and a deer pops out in front of you. Instead of spooking, your horse looks to you for guidance. We'll also explore how to rid yourself of all undesired behaviour, like pulling!
Discover how this style of horse training is exponentially more effective, and ultimately safer, than bombproofing or desensitizing.
