Before you handle your horse, learn how to handle a rope. Alexandra Kurland's Learning Lab on this topic has been very popular at ClickerExpo, and now you can get the same information at home!
Do you know what your lead feels like to your horse? Can he trust your hand? Or are you inadvertently poisoning the clicker training experience with too much force? These “t'ai chi” rope handling exercises will improve your balance, help you develop a more secure riding position, and give you a better understanding of the lead rope as a communication tool.
