Backing Young Horses CALMLY (no bucking here!) – Using positive reinforcement

Introducing a young horse to tack and rider for the first time should be a relaxed and rewarding experience for both of you. This compilation of horses and riders shows our process of using positive reinforcement to start / back / break (I hope not!) young horses.
