I have been around minis forever and have done it all almost
Hi I have been around minis and own my own...I show and train them I have a 2 year old and a couple olders. Halter is very easy to train your horse to but trust always comes before training you must know your horse trusts you or you and her will never have a good healthy relationship. It may not seem important but if you and your horse do not trust each other that can cause problems like lack of respect, and lack of respect leads into lackof interest. My 2 year old and I have been together from the birth and I worked on trust before anything else and it really works. If my 2 year old colt did not trust me he would not pay attention a good way to earn trust is by lunging and lunging leads into getting your horse perfect and more interested in the halter and paying attention you want to ask her to trot, walk and stop while lunging. Then if your horse puts her head down and licks her lips that is a good time and when you should stop because that is when your horse decides to give you her full attention and trust then you kneal down and encourage your hrse to come to you..Then halter training your horse should be able to trot walk and stop with out your commands and you and your horse should never have to have a commpetitive race while on the halter. Then she should be very fine with you touching her feet, because in halter you will be doing a lot of that have it to where you can pick up and put her feet sqaure and it is perfectly normal for her to do perfecty and then at the first show forget everything she learned.
