Horse Behavior and Training

Shared Training


Pick the new kid at Uni! ;-)
Is join up just for unbroken/untrained or misbehaving horses or for every horse and rider? If a horse is being ridden and exercised by more than one person, is it worthwhile for all riders to join up? Or is it more important for the horse to just join up with one person?

Join up is for all horses, not just the types of horses you listed. It would probably be worth while for every person to do join up with the horse so it gets comfortable with everyone.

In one of Monty's lessons I saw him join-up with a pretty wild horse then get the owner in to do follow up and made the point that it's not necessarily the person, more importantly the body language (communication).
