Well, I went to see the man him self in action last wed and I loved it! so much that i brought one of his halters
, and training video, don't worry! mickey was being really pushy today and was basicly dragging me were he wanted to go, and that included the kitchen in our house, mum was NOT pleased with me! to tell the truth I just couldn't stop him I even tried jabbing him in the flank area when he went through the doorway as a last resort to try and turn him around but i may of well tickled him!
so any way, I dug out the halter and put it on him, I had had enough of his pushy behaviour
and I did a little training with him, boy did he not like it to start with but then he calmed down and what a difference!
I only did a little though as it does say to see if you can join up with him first, going to have a try tomor, so the point I am getting at has any one used one before, how did they find it and did it improve there horse in the long run? Also , need a bit of advice, I am doing the first stage of the training and I am getting him to back up, come forward, basicly follow me but he takes no notice when I tell him to back up, and when I do use the presure I can't conture up enough because he seems numb to it and I get hardly any response, he does move but in his own time very slowly!, am I just to weak!? would sharp tugs on the rope be better or would that hurt him?
