Re: [RC] Aversion to syringes, worming, and I'm sure electrolytes - Doug Price

One option is clicker training. The approach differs by saying you'll get a
reward if you tolerate this "bad" thing. 

Most of the training sequence is the same. Starting with something easy and
progressing except you reward after each try.

The advantage is you never have to lie to your horse. Even when you give him
the bad stuff he gets his reward.

of medication.  As a result, he tends to see the syringe and put his head in
the air.  How do you train your horse to accept a syringe of stuff that may
not taste very good?
