Hi Araya! I have another couple of tips about training, if you want to post them. :) Darby
#1: After you work with your horse, and it is a new horse, freshly getting trained, tie it up and let it sit for 30 minutes, so that the horse can think about what it has just learned/did.
#2: Always do groundwork and desensitizing, even if your horse is bomb proof, it is always good to keep the horse up to date.
#3: If you can't ride a horse that needs riding due to an injury or whatever, take your horse on walks, so that it still gets normal exercise.
#4: It is a fun and good idea to keep a horse log. That's what I do, I list the horse's names and show names, and what I did with them that day, and I date it with the day that I did it. Today I wrote that I put Patches' bangs up in a ponytail, lifted her feet up and filled her water trough. Just keep a diary on your horses, like brushing them, today I didn't brush the horses, because they don't need it every day because they are going to get dirty anyway, so I wrote that I didn't brush them.
Thanks for the tips, Darby! I love the idea of keeping a horse log. Sometimes I feel like the blog is my log! If anyone else has any training tips, feel free to send them our way and we'll post them for all of our Horse Pals.
