Re: [RC] [RC] Shadow roll - Betsy O'Shea

I wish my horse would stop or hesitate so I could get off and lead him by
scarey stuff.  Usually I have no idea what he is shying from, and with no
warning and a fast spin, I am usually off on the ground, and he is off, down
the trail. I am getting banged up, and at my age, I am getting hurt too. I
was just wondering if the shadow roll would diminish this. Any  ideas?

Mine used too, till I kept telling him it was just a rock, as I dismounted
and led him past it, since he is smart enough to understand word cues, he
just sort of sidesteps by a bit now when AI say ,"oh, it's just a rock..."

Has anyone used a shadow roll on a horse that shies?  Was it effective?
arab shies and spins at white rocks, grass of a different color etc.
:(  A
shadow roll (the large sheepskin noseband) works with race horses, and I
was thinking it might reduce the shying in my horse.
