This exercise is the key to calm and attentive horses.
The horse learns to wait for a cue from his trainer and can wait patiently until you’re done talking to your barn friends or playing with your phone without your horse turning into an attention-seeking monster.
The horse stands next to the trainer, shoulder to shoulder, feet and front hooves at one line
A bit distance between horse and handler
Neck straight forward
Head on a comfortable height for the horse with neck horizontal (dependson horse’s built)
Horse is relaxed
Advanced level: horse stands square and can stand left and right of the trainer
