I have a 15 mo old TWH gelding that has been on our property since weaning at 6 months. Now granted we visited him since he was a month old and he was already halter broke to lead when we got him. Iíve taught him to stand tied, accept grooming, accept fly spray, accept hoof cleaning, trailering, stand next to the mounting block, drop his head, & back up on command. While heís at the mounting block, I stand on the top step and reach over to pat his neck, touch his ears lightly, and rub his butt. He has been trimmed by my farrier twice and been seen by the equine dentist. We are doing some simple ground driving. I also take him for about a mile walk several times per week out on the road to get used to traffic and leaving the property. I live on a remote gravel road in the mountains so we only meet about 2-4 vehicles on our walk. Most of our training is only about 10 minutes at a time but he learns very quickly. I really didnít realize that Iíve taught him as much as I have until writing this! I also just spend quite a bit of time loving on him. Must be doing something right cause at times he would prefer to be with me rather than his buddies! Also, most importantly we are building a relationship of trust and partnership.
