Managing a Less Sensitive Horse

Horsemanship, performance coach, dressage/event rider and trainer Chelsea Canedy demonstrates how to manage a less sensitive horse on the ground.

In this video, Chelsea shows how to add pressure to get a forward response. It is important to give corrections quickly, so the horse associates the stick and string with the aid she just gave. Downward transitions should also happen promptly, which shows the horse is relaxed and attentive.
