If you saddle your horse up and hit the trail after a rainstorm, you’re likely to come across areas of mud. Because your horse’s eyesight gives him poor depth perception, he’ll probably view muddy areas on the trail as black holes you’re asking him to step in. Not only that, but depending on the type of dirt the trail is made up of and the condition of the ground, the mud could be thick and make loud sucking sounds as your horse steps through it.
Horses hate objects that move and make a noise, so a muddy spot on the trail is likely to fire up the reactive side of his brain. You can teach your horse to calmly negotiate muddy areas on the trail with Clinton’s help. You can learn how to build your horse’s confidence in the FREE video: Riding Through Mud
