Tips on trading young green horses?
Always guide them, but keep their mind engaged. Try not to get fustrated with them, they’re learning as well as you!
I also want to stress the importance of being patient and kind! If they don’t do something correctly the first time, don’t be quick to punsih. Rather, kindly show them how to do it correctly.
Thank you! It does 💗
With younger, greener horses, you should always guide them to where they need to go. For example, if they come to a jump or something all wobbly, you need to open your hands in a V without pulling and add a supporting leg. Also, never expect perfection out of them, they don't always understand what you are asking, so make sure you stay pacient and rewardful with training them. Hoped this helped! 😊
