Now, when the horse decides to look yonder or graze, move it's hip, now. I have one that sometimes wants to leave. That's ok, but I will maneuver myself so I can lean a little and look at his hip. He is so responsive he will turn it away and face me (both eyes) and come back to me.
Thanks Saddlebag! Shakira already yeilds her hip well but I hadn't thought of using it as a tool to get her attention. I will try. Posted via Mobile Device
