In this exclusive training series, Kate Fenner from Kandoo Equine is taking us deep into the essential foundation lessons for any horse.
Whether your horse is un-started or already going under saddle, but you feel these are areas that need a little work, you’re in the right place.
On this series of articles, Romeo has learned basic handling, including haltering, grooming, picking up feet, tying up and ‘give to the bit’, both at a standstill and at the walk. He also learnt shoulder control in hand and has been habituated to the girth and saddle cloth. He has worked through the long-reining lessons and has been habituated to the saddle.
This month we’re looking at preparing Romeo for safe mounting.
