Getting an Arab to "fluff" for halter
Hey so my arab will be the craziest guy everywhere but the halter ring he just want show the enthusiasm they want to see. I have worked with a girl a very long time ago that has arabs that compete in the national levels and she had to constantly work with her horse to get him to puff up in the halter ring. My arab will trot fine but when I set him up he will not focus and will often go to sleep or scratch his ear like in one class I went in with him. Any ways you guys know of to help out I would appreciate. :-)

I believe the term is "Swanning". Sorry, I don't know how to train for it.
