Horse Training in Florida, Trouble Catching your horse?

Having trouble Catching your horse? Try this quick tip.

Every time you go out with a halter and lead rope, your horse knows what’s coming because you never do anything different. So try something new instead. Walk over to him with the halter, but just give him a scratch or a carrot or something. Don’t try to catch him, just visit him. Just rub and scratch him with the halter–use it as a tool to “make nice” and that’s it. Or walk out there with your equipment and just leave him alone; don’t even try to approach. His conditioned responses and associations will change and so will his running away behavior.
