I have plans on showing my 2yo colt in the future. I wanted to ask how everyone exposes their horses to the hustle and bustle of the show grounds, and if it required anything to do so.
So far my colt is fearless when it comes to loading and unloading in a trailer, takes a saddle and bridle like a champ, will lead and follow you anywhere, and ties like a pro (only after having an issue with a telephone pole!
) He takes on new and scary objects everytime we go for our evening walks, likes to be around cattle, isn't afraid of dogs (will actually chase them, and chickens too).
There is a local show coming up soon, and I was thinking about just taking him there to let him watch and see what all goes on, but i'm nervous on hauling him. Any ideas?
Your thoughts and ideas are appreciated!!
P.S. He even walked up to people in a swimming pool, and a noisy pool pump. Storm.jpg
