Need some training advice
Anyone got any tips on how to get your horse to bathe without being a nutcase? My horses just don't like bathing, they side step, rush forward, and everything else. I take it nice and slow, starting with there legs, going up, so I don't shock there body. They still go insane. I think with time they woud eventually get used to it, but they are so miserable to give baths to, baths come few and far between (espically now since I just had ankle surgery so now I have a cast on my leg and I cant get it wet.) It took them about 6 months to get used to my farrier, but when he was here Saturday they stood still, didn't hop or nothing. So anyway, any tips from you horsey people on what I can do until they get used to it to make it easier on all of us?
