Written by Andy Curry

Continued from page 1

So what do you do? Simply sit inrepparttar saddle. You'll want to give your horse enough rein to stretch his neck but don't give him so much that he can graze. Then you simply sit there until he decides to move forward. Don't let him go left or right. Don't let him back up or turn around and head home. Don't kick him. Don't yell at him.

You are telling your horse it's okay to stand still but he doesn't get to anything but stand there or move forward.

At some pointrepparttar 125772 horse should move forward. When he does, give him plenty of reward.

The results from waiting for your horse to move forward are far better with patience and kindness than trying to force your horse to move. Sure, it may take a l-o-n-g time for him to move but he'll eventually feel safe enough to do it - or he may get bored just standing there - and you should know that boredom and feeling safe are almostrepparttar 125773 exact same thing inrepparttar 125774 horse's mind.

Next time you take your horse out and he naps it may take halfrepparttar 125775 time for him to move. Thenrepparttar 125776 next time it may only take a few minutes. It's kind of likerepparttar 125777 old rule of training. The more you work on itrepparttar 125778 lesser time it takes.

What do you do while you're patiently waiting for your horse to move? If you're with friends then warn them before hand this may happen. You may have to sit there and have a conversation. If you're by yourself bring a crossword puzzle or even a book. Do what it takes for you to passrepparttar 125779 time and not get impatient.

Just remember to treat it like you would a horse that's spooking. Most ofrepparttar 125780 time, napping is a reaction to spooking. You simply have to be patient and wait it out.
