Long-Reining: Part 1

October 2017 by Kate Fenner, BEqSc (Hons),

If you ever thought there must be a better and easier way to train your horse, this training series by Kate Fenner is designed for you! 

Each article walks you through specific lessons and how to teach them. From stress-free trailer loading, to handling head-shy horses, to safe mounting. Kate’s gentle and no-fuss approach will provide you with the tools and confidence you need to educate your own horse.  

Last time, Kate explained the ‘give to the bit’ lesson and, this month, she returns with a two-part series on long-reining your horse.

Most of us do something to prepare our horses for riding, for example, some in-hand work, lungeing, circles on a long line or perhaps some round pen work.
