Cody. I learned something from every video and I watched them all. Terrific. You explained everything very well so it was almost as good as being there. I can see lots of things for me to try, and lots to go back and do better, especially turning the forequarters and hindquarters away on the ground. (manners) . And that’s my plan.
One question. I got my 2 yr old colt going so we were trotting and cantering in the pastures last fall. All fine and calm except now and then she’d spook at something I was doing with my hands while riding, such as adjusting my hat or zipping up my jacket. I tried sacking her out with tall flags etc as a first resort but it didn’t really help. Any suggestions.
Probably miles. If she is at a point where she can be rode for long periods of time, and be exposed to normal human behavior during those rides then you will notice that each day she will become more relaxed. Seldom is there horses who are permanently spooky to stuff like that. I’ve worked with probably over a thousand horses now (hard to believe) and I have had 3 who stayed spooky all the time. With those 3 you just had to know their limits. But definitely regular exposure to such things will almost always be the remedy.
You might try moving around and when she finally relaxes sit quiet. So being calm is a reward for calm behavior.
