Re: [RC] electric fences - Jim Holland
That's a good training technique...I also use that. Thing about horses
is, that if you never get them excited, you can never teach them to calm
down. I, too, ride in the WORST weather. If you go through the "get
excited" "calm down" sequence enough, the level of excitement becomes
less and less and the horse learns that "Hey, if I say it's OK, then
don't worry about it...trust me". Basic training concept. Works for me.
