The ‘Head Down’ Lesson Made Easy

31/05/2017 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 month, it was it was trailer loading in 10 easy steps. This month, it’s training your horse to lower his head on cue - on the ground and under saddle.

Have you ever had your horse do the perfect imitation of a kite on a lead, or have you had to try to bridle that convincing giraffe impersonation?
