Desensitizing While Moving

Like desensitizing while standing still, maintaining a connection here is the key. Your horse should be able to stay at any gait you put them at, and stay mentally present, while you desensitize them.

Success Tips:

- Ensure your horse can maintain the gait before you start working on this.
- Ensure your horse is good with this standing still first.

Common Problems/Mistakes:

- Starting out with a horse that won’t maintain that gait before you work on the desensitizing.
- Starting with too much energy or speed with the flag too soon.
- Not being aware when your horse shows tension
