Reply To: Relaxing a hot horse

Topics Started: 0Replies Posted: 2

I like to use a neck rope with hot horses. It gives me something else to communicate with them without pulling on their head, which tends to not relax a hot horse. It takes a lot of patience and confidence to help a hot horse channel that energy into something that you both enjoy. What you are looking for is responsiveness to your aids, especially when you are working at speed. Asking for little things early to keep him listening can help too. Good Luck!
