The horse is taught to find a different answer by learning to drop his head, think and relax. Incredibly, all horses learn this very quickly and once they know the new "answer" they choose it, simply because to them, it feels better.
Next the horse is taught to understand a series of cues, which communicate to the horse how he should behave. Once the horse understands the cues, he is then taught to be obedient to the cues. These are not seperate steps, they go hand in hand. As the horse learns, he needs to respond correctly.
Of course, just as one cannot learn to swim from reading a book, (everyone knows you must
get into the water to learn to swim!) starting young horses cannot be learned from reading
about it. Starting young horses is truly an Experiential learning process. (You must 'Experience' starting horses to be any good at it)
An experience that is best learned in a safe environment, under careful, expert supervision.
Steve's Horse Breaking Course offers just that.
Participants are guided step by step, (every step of the way) from catching the unbroken horse right through to riding and covering everything in between.
