    When you train, I assume you have her on a lead rope? Well, I would say “trot”, start running and put some pressure on the lead rope. As soon as she starts trotting I would stop, reward her and give her a break so she learns that trotting is not that bad. If she is resistant to trot, you can use a whip -not to hit her(!) but to point it to her bum to tell her that this is the body part you want her to shift. When you start an exercise MEAN IT! Don’t stop before you don’t get what you want.

    I also have a horse and she is a 2 year old mare… When I start running she won’t follow me, and ideas to get her to trot with me?

    oh, good :-) awesome work! If your horse is good without a lead rope (and doesn’t run away), you might wanna try the trick lunging without a lead rope. I posted a video, have a look and let me know what you think!

    I have 2 Icelandics. I also use clicker training method, but just use my voice. Probably should use a clicker to get more precise timing for teaching more tricks, as you suggest.

  14. Marenlene says:

    haha…yes, he always does that…and starts to count, grab something or even bow! A real show off…but I think it is good because he shows that he likes his training and does the tricks voluntarily..what horse do you have? What other tricks did you train him?

    He’s cute offering the smile trying to get an extra treat. I taught mine to smile too. He does the same behavior using the smile to say “Hey, I’d sure like a treat.”
