Teach your horse to stand still: trail and arena. Episode 3: The Trail to the World Show

Question: Do you trail ride your show horses?

Answer: Yes!!!

In this video, I explain some of the reasons I trail ride. I also share how I ‘build a bridge’ between arena work and trail work.

I explain what I consider ’emotional control training’ and show examples in the arena.

Maybe the most interesting clips are where I explain my cue for teaching my horses to stand still.  I don’t just hope my horses will stand. I teach them a cue. This is super helpful when I’m in the show pen OR out on the trail. I grew up riding horses that I ‘hoped’ would stand still. Teaching a cue is much, much better!
