P1 Targeting! I use targeting ALL. THE. TIME. It’s one of the most useful behaviours you can train your horse for leading, loading, de-spooking, lunging, groundwork and riding.
But what is it? Well, basically, it’s teaching your horse to touch an object with her nose when you ask. But, there are 3 different types of nose targeting and each has different benefits.
