Train Your Own Horse with Stacy Westfall

Mar 4, 2020

Episode 68: How to teach your horse to spook, in three easy steps!

1) start with a horse with lack of experience or holes in the training
2) try not rock the boat…
3) when the horse has doubts, reduce the pressure or request

Thanks for humoring me there. 
Sometimes when I’m thinking about a subject…I try to consider all angles and this time, I decide that telling this story backward would be interesting. I really do go through the steps of how to teach a horse to spook...but I then follow it up with how NOT to teach your horse to spook. 
I hope you find this episode structure slightly entertaining, possibly revealing…and somewhat interesting!
