YES. Look for a REAL trainer, not some yahoo who will just hurt your horse like that one.
People like that "trainer" who still think of the horse as some dumb animal that needs to be forced into submission....that type of thinking is OVER.
Look for a trainer that is PROGRESSIVE in training...meaning, they don't adhere to the ancient "force em!" mentality. But rather, one who accepts that the horse is an intelligent animal that can be taught how to accept something like being tied, without inflicting pain.
does that mean that your horse won't freak out when being trained? no. I've trained several horses who had spent years pulling back and breaking things....and they would freak out during training (meaning, they would pull back)..BUT BUT BUT.....
I used a BLOCKER TIE RING. And thus, NO HORSE WAS EVER HURT and they only pulled back a handful of times....meaning, they pulled the 22 ft line long through the ring, without any inflicted pain to their bodies (compared to being tied hard)......until they stopped pulling back altogether (didn't take long for them to figure it out).
They learned fairly quickly (within a week's time, 1 hour each day) not to pull back at all. They learned that when they set back and stepped back....nothing broke, nothing hurt....and so, they started THINKING their way through.
I sacked em out while they were "tied" to the Blocker Tie Ring......meaning, the 22 ft lead line was put through the ring, so the horse could pull it through easily....the horse soon learns...."I'm not trapped! So, I have nothing to worry about. I don't need to freak out."
And the horse was then able to be tied normally after the training, and the horse remembered the lesson and didn't pull back anymore.
Horses are very smart, if we give them time to think instead of react. If we give them the opportunity to think things over....they'll choose the peaceful solution.
If we give them the chance.
That numbskull of a "trainer" didn't give your horse the chance. Didn't allow any thinking...only reacting. Tying up a PREY animal and forcing it to submit....is a great way to end up having to get a chiropractor for the horse after all of that.
1) get a chiropractor for your horse. ten to one, there's pain now because of all of the pull backs
2) get a blocker tie ring --> HorseLoversOutlet.com - Blocker Tie Rings
3) get a 22 ft line
4) get a trainer to train your horse without force or pain
