Some clicker trained horses can get into the habit of stopping dead when they hear the click or their marker. From a trot or canter, this can cause the horse to slam on the brakes, bracing and hollowing as they stop. This can cause problems for the horse physically and is uncomfortable to ride.
In this video, I show you how to teach your horse to stop slowly and gently when you click. Starting with leading exercises, you’ll make sure your horse knows to halt softly and in balance. I then show you this process when lunging and riding in trot and canter.
