Keeping Control of Your Horse

Keeping control of your horse lays in the hands of the trainer not the equipment is used. When approaching training you need to decide what part of your horse you are trying to control. An example is if you horse is moving fast or crowding you, you would want to slow down your horse and not speed it up. The horse would only move faster if you sped up.

Taking each movement or section of the horse will help your horse succeed faster than trying to teach all at the same time. There are four regions to the horse to train to get and keep control; they are the nose, the shoulder, the hip and the emotions. All the regions move in six directions: up, down, forward, back, left and right. To simplify, when we direct the nose in the six different directions but only move the other regions we try to use fewer directions.
