So in the past I worked at a little farm and the neighbor next store had about 5 horses. When it was later in the after noon you could hear a wistle and all the horses came galloping back from the pasture. I thought it was the neatest thing (and thought of the movie "Spirit" and how the horse Rain came to the Indian guy...) I would ride a horse up to the fence and mimic the wistle, just to see if the horses did the same. And just as I suspected they went galloping back to the house.
Now here is my question - How can I train my horse to come to a call or wistle?
When ever I come in to his pasture I wistle and call but this doesnt seem to be taking effect. Also I don't want him to just come to me because he thinks I have treats... Any help/advice?
(P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong spot... I went to training and say Natural Horsemanship and saw this as more of a bonding question I guess...)
