Why does your horse KEEPS grazing when he ‘knows’ he’s not suppose to?! What doesn’t work and why? And also: what does work to keep your horse engaged with you and listening to you when there is grass all around?
Husbandry skills are all behaviours you need to train in order to keep your horse happy, healthy and safe. Examples: hoof care, eye care, behaviours to make basic care easy and safe: haltering, leading, tying.
One of my horses, Fionn, is not (yet) cool about lifting his legs for cleaning and trimming. I’ve never had mini horses before but I can totally see how people would manhandle them instead of training them properly. An adult is so much stronger and it’s enticing to think you can ‘win’ by holding his leg up. But are you really winning that way?
