WHEN WORKING WITH A HEAD-SHY HORSE DON’T...
tie him and/or confine him. be impatient or get angry when you don’t get what you want. I’m not saying you will, but so many people do. Then they prove to their horse they are not worth trusting.
be too slow and sneaky. It creates conditions on how you can be around him, and you don’t want that.
rely on treats. They won’t be a big help here. This training will be more effective if you succeed without the tricks.
