Get your horse use to the Rope ?

How do you get your horse use to the rope swinging without him spooking and thinking its gonna attack him ?

Is this before or after you teach him to jump?

Exposure. Maybe that Aussie Whip thing that CA does.

Corporal: Thanks !

I think what Dressage is asking because of the other "How to" threads you've posted. I noticed you also posted a jumping thread? Are you wanting the same horse to learn both of these things at once? That's a little difficult and because they're two VERY different disciplines you really can't expect to do both in training and get good results. It's also in your best interest to find a professional and seasoned trainer to help you with these things rather than just jumping in yourself with not much knowledge and experience on the subject.

The thing about that is that you never said these were two different horses. We can only go by what information you give us, and you're giving us really nothing to work with. There are a lot of factors that could go into these things.. it's not a one size fits all advice.. So to get better answers you have to give us more to go off of. You asked for advice and you're bound to hear things you don't agree with but that's just part of participating on a public forum.

Second guessing me on if im teaching a horse two things or not isn't exactly in terms of advice. advice is something such as Corporal said "Exposure. Maybe that Aussie Whip thing that CA does." Sorry to sound rude. And it could have also been an honest question at the same time, maybe I don't intend to teach my horse one or the other, and am just contemplating doing one. There are alot of factors that go into questions that can't all be written out.

Well said Amber! Couldn't agree with you more.
