Question: Do you trail ride your show horses?
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!
