This video teaches a fun and rewarding trick while helping enhance communication skills between horse and rider. The power of teaching 'tricks' is that riders often have fewer bad habits and a more open mind. This makes the process a great place to practice timing, release and reward patterns that you can then carry over to other areas of your horsemanship.
The video features a two-year-old learning for the first time, a horse that already learned but needs a refresher, and two finished horses. Using four horses allows viewers to clearly see all of the stages of training as well as the common problems found at each stage.
You'll find demonstrations of the traditional bow, the two-knee bow and the lead-in to lay down trick.
