How do I desensitize my horse to the hose? When ever the "evil" hose is around she starts pawing and getting all antsy 😬
Start with sponging her legs with water to get her used to it then work your way up. Once she's used to that try the hose ok her legs. Take your time and make sure you let her know when she is being good(treats work great)
How do i teach my 5 years old pony to not pull the cross ties or when she is tied in general?
My horse used to do this to. What I did was practice tying her in her stall first. Then I practiced standing with her where she would be tied to the cross ties and hold her with a lead rope. When she stood still for a while she got a treat. Now she stands perfectly still and is great! It takes time and patients but if you keep practicing and you don't force your horse to do something there not comfortable with they should stand still.
