Creating Connection Under Time Restraints – Staying Connected While Walking

Once you can get ear, eye and head, the next step is for them to come in, face you and stop.

Success Tips:

- If the horse's head follows you more than it has previously, take the pressure off by returning back to the front of them and then try again. Try to get it to go a little further each time.
- Have a pulling/drawing energy when trying to attract their attention. Turn it off when you get what you want. This energy is your 1st cue.
- Ideally you would like the inside hind foot step under but reward the front feet for untracking as well.

Common Problems/Mistakes:

- Horses head follows you and then turns away before the feet move: Get the eye back again.
