Australian Brumby Challenge ©
Elizabeth Grant and VBA Avena
This week I reached my goal of having Avena being comfortable to be touched
This week Avena made some big changes in her attitude towards me, now she will trot over to greet me to have pats and cuddles, let’s me pat her all over and brush her, she follows me around and now allows me to pat her with her headstall. She has mastered giving to pressure.
I have learnt that you can’t train a determined horse by being stubborn but I can train her by turning things into games and working as one. It’s safe to say she learns best when things are games.
Goal for next week is to have her leading.
