Help please! Need training advice!
I just got a 10 yr old morgan last month, iv been working with him every day after work and on my days off, I wanted himt o get use to me before I did aything. Iv been making it clear that when im brushing him I don't want him going forward, and he's slowly learning that he needs to stand still and let me brush him. I can lead him with little resistance and lessening stops to eat grass with out me allowing him to. He lets me pick you and clean all four hooves with no problem at all, and dosent try to push me any more. Im looking for some tips on how to further assert my dominance and show him im the boss and he's safe with me, so he will trust me more, so I can be his friend as well as his leader. I heard a good way to do that is to stand around him when he eating grass, to sort of simulate another horse watching for danger? Im not sure of how true that is... and im sure it sounds really stupid, I haven't tried it yet. But that's why im asking lol! Any help would be appreciated!
