Accepting Touch

Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 12.07.23 PMThis 4yr.old QH gelding’s owner would like him to learn to drive. He is a good solid trail horse for his age but can be a little goosey to things touching him. This is his second session and he is getting more relaxed with it. By giving him the freedom to move if he feels he has to and backing off when he tries to stay still, he can learn to accept the touch at his own pace. I’ll build on this until it is no bother to him at all.
