Tyja Training – Scary Tarp

Since I had my camera out to video Ellie vs the tarp I figured I’d might as well get some video of a new horse we now have. Tyja has been with us for about 2 weeks and we’ve started her in-hand training.  She’s been green broke to ride/drive but I start every horse at square 1.   I’d much rather spend the time on the ground gaining respect so when it comes time to hitch or ride, scary events are a non-issue.

As you can see by the clip Tyja, though 5 years old, is much more concerned with the tarp than Ellie was.  It goes to show you starting horses as early as possible makes a big difference.   Handling a 400lb foal when it’s frightened is much easier than a 1,000 adult!
