How to connect with a compliant but not comfortable horse

Updated: Nov 16, 2021

The horse in this video has a spooking and bucking issue. Solving the problem of him thinking he is the leader when led and standing staring at me while holding tension is a huge step in the right direction of solving his problems.

Below is a summary of case study 4, compliant but not comfortable - so that you don`t have to watch hours of me sitting with a horse, in an attempt to make him ignore me and then allow him to come back from self, without any kind of reinforcement. Not the most common horse problem in this world, but this method works for horses who are well trained and know a lot of groundwork, but still hold tension. Cause more training will not fix this, but giving a true choice will.

Thank you so much for watching! I hope this helps. If you know a friend who needs this feel free to share this post

That was so informative and helpful! Not in a - if this, then do that kind of way, but in a way that helps us think and adapt to the horse in the moment. The change was so easy to see.

Thank you so much for your kind words Laina! I learned a lot from this too, more training does not always help. Your horse is so blessed to have you <3
