Buddy-Sour Horses are the Focus of the March NWC Video
When you ride your horse on the trail, he should be focused on the job at hand, not worried about where his buddies are or getting back home. When your horse gets anxious about being separated from the group or being split up from a particular horse, he’s using the reactive side of his brain. He’s unpredictable, fearful and dangerous. He’s tuned in to his prey animal tendencies and gives little thought to anything else, including his and your safety.
In this month’s training session, Clinton works with a group of riders to demonstrate how to handle two common buddy-sour issues: 1) a pair of horses that don’t want to separate from one another and 2) a horse that’s nervous about leaving the group. The session ends with an exercise you can do when riding in a group to ensure that you don’t create buddy-sour horses.
