Am I going about this correctly? *pawing*
I just got my new horse in March, and I am hoping to do a lot of showing with him which means he will be in stalls. He is kind of buddy sour, and just well... impatient. He throws his head around and paws. I had him at a show last weekend and while in the stall the first time he contently munched on hay and was really good. And then after the first class I put him back in the stall (Right next to his buddy) and he had hay and what not, but he started carrying on like a butthead and pawing and just being rude. So I was thinking of killing two birds with one stone (He also doesn't like to stand tied very well) so I was going to put him in a stall maybe with hay? and tie him up for increments of time until he stands quietly in the stall. Is that a good idea or is there a better way to do it?
