What To Do With A Pushy Horse On Ground


– Today we’re working with Corona, who is a year and a half old. Little guy. And I would like to show
you some things that I do with horses on the ground at this age. So I just started off just
kind of rubbing on his head and noticed that he pushed
into me quite a lot. So I don’t really want a horse to push or press against me in any way. A horse can touch me. A horse can smell me. But I don’t want a horse pushing or pressuring in and nudging me. And it seems like a
little thing like this. But it’s not. Because this later on
will become him turning and pulling the rope. Because he’s learning to push against you. So right now he’s relaxed. So the push is a little bit. But if he gets nervous that push is 10 times that right? And before you know it you’re sand skiing. You know around the ring. So what I want to make
sure is that I can rub him and even ask him to bend
without pressing against me and then when I let go I’d like him to return back to center slowly. So he’s not snatching his head back and quickly coming back to me. I’m going to work on this side. So it’s in all these little things that it’s going to add up to be something. To be something big later on. So I’m going to see if I can ask him to look a little further and
then maybe even take his feet now there is that pushing again. So I just set myself up
so that when he pushes, he’s pushing against
something fairly solid. In this case it’s the halter. Now right here I want to let go of him but I won’t let go of him
right now until there. Until he’s soft and he gives. So I stayed with him there. I stayed with him there
until that weightless give or until it was his idea. So now the other direction. It’s very important that
I can get him to bend both directions with softness and sort of a weightless feel there. That’s a little bit better. I’ll let him think about that.
