Re: [RC] re: hobbling to saddle - Jim Holland


That's what I meant about "how" you train. What "training procedure"
works for one person may not be desirable for another. You train for the
results you want.

For example, I want my horses to "ground tie"....when the lead line is
on the ground, they are effectively "tied". Instead of letting my guys
walk around dragging the lead lines, I hobble...or here at the farm,
just nothing...and I don't go get them....call them to come to me!

We always give our guys free roam of the yard while we are
getting ready to load up. They walk around and graze - usually dragging
their lead ropes - until we are ready. They are taught that when they
step on a lead rope to stop and step back - instead of panicing. They
know to stand when we approach them to get them. While any horse can
panic, I doubt that ours will excpet in extorinary circumstances.
