desensitising my horse!
i have a now 17 yr old standy whom i love and would do anything for me but is petrified of wire. when i first got him he would touch it and bolt now hes either better about it or i am just more confident but he still freaks when he touches it. Any ideas? hes fine with me flicking rope round his feet and his not too touchy about that but its physically wire...any help is much appreciated...also i want to train the same horse to carry a swag on his back behind the saddle and suggestions? thanks
