Yeah, though it sometimes takes a close call or two

One thing is to ride with other people who have trained dogs. I've noticed that new ones tend to follow the behavior of the pack. Someone must have trained the originals, but that was long before I started riding.

Another idea might be to do the training on a mountain bike (on some nice, smooth dirt road). That way you don't have the distractions of handling the horse, or having the horse think you're trying to do something to it if you e.g. use a stick to move the dog off to the correct distance... (Of course I mean using it to push, not hit )

One thing I have never done - and will never do - is have a dog on a line while riding a horse. Just too many opportunities for disaster there.

Courage is taking just one more step...
