[RC] Mouth work - clicker training - Sheila_Larsen

I agree with Susan, clicker training would probably serve you very well
with this type of issue.  And hey if you try it you may never stop using
it, whole new way of working with your horse.  With all due respect to
Ranelle, if you back off once she is agitated she may be "clicker" training
you not to approach her ( if what I am remembering correctly what Ranelle
said, my apologies and if we ever actually do go riding together she can
thwap in person).   The John Lyons method of  approach and retreat would be
compatible with clicker training with just the added incentive of getting a
treat so she knows where she had done the correct thing.

In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have.  Eleven-hundred pounds of raw
power, grace, and sweat between your legs
- it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.  ~Author Unknown
