[RC] Introducing your horse to a crupper - labdoggy

This is the way I introduced my horse to a crupper and I must say it worked 
pretty well!
When I was home picking stalls or the run-ins (when I would be around so that 
this was somewhat supervised)...I would put a curcingle (sp) on her with a 
breast collar hooked up to it so it wouldn't slide back.  I then attached the 
crupper (had to jerry rig this seeing as the length of the crupper wasn't long 
enough to reach the curcingle(sp?). Then I would just turn her out and let her 
graze and move around.  I did this for quite some time.  It really helped 
desensitize her to it.  Of course I lunged her also fully saddled.  I lunged 
her on a slope so that when she was coming back down-hill the crupper would 
"goose" her.
