Trying to create talent is not my job, it is a horse trainer’s job to get a horse soft, supple, and be a willing participant
In this live clinic (the first one we ever did!) we’re covering the expectations we have for our two year old show prospects in the 30-60 day mark. We start covering the turn around as a tool for standing their shoulders up and begin rolling their neck around from the withers in order to keep their shoulders swinging free and open. Our horse now knows how to sidepass, turn, and back up and we will use all three to start teaching our horse to work back off her hips and get her weight off her front end to prepare her for asking her to give to the bit.
