Getting A Horse To Calm Down Without Lunging
So my horse has been in his stall the past couple days because of some bad weather, and I know from experience that he gets very spooky and energetic in situations like this. Now would probably be a good time to mention that he's 4, and obviously, kind of green. xD
I would lunge him, but he had some bad experiences with lunging with his previous owner, so while we've almost gotten the problem fixed, it's safer for me to lunge him with my trainer around to supervise.
Sorry, I know it's a kind of random question, but it seems to be a recurring problem that I have.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
