Why So Slow?

Kate Fenner - Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Click on the photo above to watch the video.

This video explains why I am taking TJ so slowly and making sure he understands each step of the process. Things went a little wrong today, as you will see, but we ended very well.

Horse welfare and human safety are always my top priorities when training and while the enticement of a 'competition' may be in the back of my mind from time to time, the horse dictates the speed of learning in every situation.

Je kon al aanzien komen dat dit ging gebeuren,gelet op de lichaamshouding en signalen. Plus daarbij heeft het paard veel spanning op zijn darmen waardoor het zich niet goed voelt ik zou daar wat aan doen. Ik vind het wel goed dat dit getoond word, dat het niet altijd goed gaat.Met vriendelijke groet,
Wilma Pouw

Yes Wilma, I do agree that the horse did give warnings. If you watch some of his previous videos you will see that he does give warnings a lot and there comes a time when one needs to push past things and see if he can cope with a little more. I think it is important that I don't always back off when he is frightened because quite often he is left thinking 'that wasn't so bad' and enjoying his pat.
He is 7 years old and has only been out of the wild for a short time so his new feeding regime is being introduced as quickly as he can cope with it.
I agree that it is definitely important that these things are shown and I thank you for your comment and support.
