Your horse will even learn to cope with the 'dreaded plastic bag'!
For sensitive Senna, even the tiniest bit of plastic is terrifying. Tracy admits she has spent hours trying to get him close to a plastic bag but without success. In this lesson, Jenku sets Senna up for success by timing the 'pressure on and release' so that in the end Senna feels as though he’s in control of the scary bag. Surprisingly, at the end he learns to relax rather than explode.
Because horses are flight animals, they are acutely aware of other animals' body language, including us humans! Learn about the ‘hungry lion’ and the ‘ lazy lion’, switching your energy on and off and how horses can do the same in the game, 'Mirror Me'. Starting with the plastic bag on the end of a stick, Jenku puts the pressure on and then takes it off immediately Senna softens. Not only is this great for Senna as he doesn’t have to deal with adrenaline bursts, but it’s brilliant for Tracy as well. After all, nobody likes riding a horse that feels as though he’s walking on eggshells!
