As Geo moves back and forth in front of me, I pass the nozzle under the lead and spray his other side. I may do this quietly for five minutes or more. Each time, I reduce the amount I ask him to move and gradually insist he stand still a bit longer to accept the spray. Notice that at the beginning I direct the water toward the horse’s shoulder and rib area—it’s best to start spraying parts of his body that are less sensitive than the front legs or the face. Build your horse’s confidence incrementally, and gradually move the spray out of his comfort zones.
