I have been training Jack for some time now. We have been very thorough with his desensitizing and making sure he was comfortable with his job. Jack is inherently suspicious of anything new or of anything touching him. I had to make sure every i was dotted and t was crossed during his training. I know all too well that swiss cheese training leads to getting hurt!
Patience, calmness and faith in Jack is what he needed. One day he finally just took a deep breath, let it out and was a changed horse. Now he is so relaxed in his harness I can't believe we did it! Jack has made me a better horse trainer.http://youtu.be/t54iMkIFIaQ
