We’ve all been there. You have an anxious horse, but it’s time to ride. Time is tight, so you do the best you can to get the horse to be “still enough” to swing a leg over and go.
Of course, when that horse returns to that scenario over and over again, things are going to get worse before they get better. Pretty soon you’re all but diving onto your horse every time you get on. It’s not only unnecessary, it’s dangerous. Your just one missed stirrup or quick spook away from a big fall. (I have a feeling if you’re reading this, you may already have had a fall or two!)
It doesn’t have to be that way!
This followup lesson plan to the In Hand Training Lesson Plan will help you get your horse to stand patiently while you hitch.
You’ll be able to mount without the stress, worry, or anxiety for you or your horse. Get started now!
