Horse Training -

The training or breaking of a young horse to saddle or harness consists in gradually introducing the animal to wearing various pieces of tack and then to carrying or pulling a weight. The forcible breaking of older horses, in which a horse that has had no previous training is bridled, saddled, and ridden, is regarded as primitive and unsatisfactory training. A young horse is broken to be haltered and led first, then gradually to accept a saddle and a bridle. Most horses are pretty good about this if you work slowly with them and don't mistreat them. Advanced training, as with advanced equitation, takes many forms. The training of racehorses and cow ponies is a highly specialized art, best accomplished by professional trainers. The horseman or horsewoman who rides for pleasure, however, should have the knowledge necessary to exercise a choice in training a horse to jump, hunt, behave in a show-ring, or learn the basic dressage maneuvers. Because these accomplishments are based on the natural movements of the horse, patience, skill, and repetition are the prime teaching factors.
