My New Years Resolution:
Police Training for Civilian Show, Trail & Working Horses
Come and experience a Mounted Police Training School
So, you have a great horse. The day is a wonderful day for the show or a trail ride and you know you could have a great time, maybe even win, if only your horse would just settle down. It seems your horse always gets excited and nervous on show/event day and looks for any reason to spook. You’re all too familiar with that jumpy, spooky, can’t stand still, can’t get a grip day, that you have come to expect.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THERE IS A CURE
Think about it this way, if Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Warm-bloods, Quarter Horses, Appaloosas, Paints and any other kind of horse can be trained to be police horses, there is no reason your horse can’t be taught the same things. The fact is training a horse to be “spook proof” is just another training method. Like all other training methods, it requires a working knowledge of techniques used by, in our case, police training. And, like all training, with enough practice your horse will learn to trust you and “go forward” through whatever you tell him/her to go through with little or no resistance.
