Part 1: Horse Behavior/Body Language Study with Rescue Mustangs - Catching Game
Part 1 - Kali introduces Noah and Valentine and explains how to assess the horse's horsenality. Kali then explains what style of catching will enable you to catch that horsenality the quickest.
The total length of this demo is 45 minutes, In less than an hour, Kali teaches students how to cause two, very different, newly rescued Mustangs to want to interact and play. The demo is divided into 5, 9-minute sections and posted on YouTube. (Dvds are available for $18 each, $14 each if you join our Clicker Club. Just send us an email to get set up.)
Kali teaches the students how to read the horse to know how it wants to interact. Horses with different horsenalities will be differently motivated. Noah is predominately an analytical extrovert (LBE), motivated by play. Valentine is predominately an emotional introvert (RBI), motivated by comfort. Kali shows different modes of how to catch a horse that work with these two very different horsenalities. For an extra twist, Valentine switches to an analytical, somewhat mischievous, "what's in it for me" mood for awhile and the students have to change gears, learning a third mode of catching on the fly!
This is Noah and Valentine's second training session. For more information on their journey, visit our blog, community.equineoutreach.com/
