Is there anything worse than when you have to ride and pick up the horse in the paddock and it has decided that it is not at happy for a ride?
Haven’t we all experienced it at some point?
Usually it is when the pasture is muddy and we come with low shoes to pick it up 🙂
There is even the variant of horse, that is absolutely not possible to take and is difficult every time it goes in.
The fact that the horse does not want to enter can have many reasons. It does not have to be that it does not like you, it may be due to other things like herd mentality or that it simply thrives where it is and does not want to go in the stable.
I have had many horses in my life and have come across a few who are that way, but I must say that all my own breeds I have learned that if I whistle, there is food.
It’s a really great way to teach them from the beginning, because when mum comes whistling there, so will foals. They can go far away and not be seen, but when I whistle they come at full gallop.
I always have something good for them when I whistle at them and I do not think it is cheating but an easy way to teach them how to come 🙂
