I teach hobbling. It is simple to teach, takes about 3 or 4 days before he is wearing hobbles and from then on I hobble him for brushing, for saddling , for everything except doing his feet.
He learns patients, he learns to stand with nothing on his head.
Every time I return from a ride he stands ground hitched at the back of my truck while I untack him. I carry my saddle.
He learns from doing. He learns patient from hobbling, he learns ground tieing from do it at the back of my truck, in the woods while I take a pee break.
I have left one of my guys 1 hour 20 minutes out in the open and he never moved.
For my young guy if I am clearing trail and walk too far away he is hobbled for both our safety.
