4 Ways to Train Touching Your Horse’s Legs POSITIVELY

Many horses can be reactive, anxious or fidgety about having their legs touched, but it’s a necessity for grooming and hoof lifting. In this video you’ll see 4 ways to train leg touching with 4 different horses:

– A 2yo appaloosa learning to stand quietly while his legs and hooves are touched.

– A young foal learning about leg touch and grooming for the first time standing at a target.

– A wild mustang filly recently rounded up learning that human touch can be gentle and positive, using a start button.

– An anxious untouchable donkey who hadn’t had his feet trimmed because he kicked so much.

This video featured CT Coach Aria Luna, CT Coach Sharen Ross and CT trainer and equine physiotherapist Sophie Pickard.
