breaking a horse to harness
hiya I have just broken my cob to harness and I use tit bits as a reward.
I have had him nearley a month now and I issue verble commands to him he stands out and also says please and asks for a titbit.
Although he is only 4 he was bucking a bit I use an old troting sulky as a brakeing cart well he kicked the cart and he is 100% now and he is a quick learner to.
And had him on the track and and gave him tit bits on verious locations and im pleased with his progress in harness so im fixing his 4 wheeler at the moment as the brake is being upgraded.
Its a good cart its an exercise vechiel and has a box seat so a driver and groom can sit up front and six passangers siting on the back and we used it for school fates and exercise and pony rides with my frends welsh section c the sad thing both of them have passed on.
My driveing pony works to verble commands walk trot and canter left and right and the pony I lost a year ago I drove them in tandem and thay both responded to verble commands.
