WH - STARTING COLTS
By Mike Kevil & Pat Close
Because both people and horses react under pressure, rather than thinking, the author's philosophy is to increase the chances of the horse reacting the correct way, by teaching the horse in a soft, non-traumatic way. He will accept this and do it willingly thereafter, and when under pressure, chances are he will react in the way he has been taught. Other important points are to go slowly, be patient, practice feel and timing constantly, prepare your horse for everything you do, and if the horse seems confused, ask for something simple, use of positive and negative reinforcement, and try and find the cause of any problems before trying to fix them.
