Horse Training: Teach Your Horse To Use His Hindquarters
by: Andy Curry
Wanna help your horse develop and use his hindquarters more?
Ride him up and down steep hills.
Before you do though, I suggest youhave control over him. Thus, when you askhim to stop, he knows to stop.
And be sure to do it in places whereyou feel safest. Don't be around a bunch ofwire fencing, posts, holes, etc.
Now as you go up the hill, pick apoint you want to go to. Walk slowly, straight, and don't let him get chargey.
You don't want a horse to chargeup hill or down because it's a great wayfor you to get hurt.
Remember, a horse thinks much moreclearly when he's walking. And is far lessto get excited when going about his work calmly.
On the other hand, you want to drive him up that hill. So you have to balance it out.
Be sure to stay in proper ridingposition so he can move as he needs to.
As you come down the hill, try stopping him and stay standing for a mom-ment. This'll test the control you have onhim.
But remember if you stop and standon a hill for long periods of time, turn yourhorse perpindicular to the hill.
As you go uphill, hold on to his maneif you need to balance yourself. Don't pullon the reins or use the saddle horn.
