Pink Pig, Never Saw One Before

Confidence Building ClinicWe like a horse that investigates new things and checks them out. A horse should be expected to do his job and that includes paying attention to where he is going and the surrounding environment. When a horse sees something strange for the first time, the natural inclination before proceeding may be to push his nose towards it. When he does, give him a minute to inspect the situation. Don’t rush him as he considers and thinks about the next step. Otherwise, you leave him with an uncomfortable feeling similar to what you might feel in a dark alley with someone telling you to hurry over what you can’t even see.

Here, one of the riders at the Bad Girls confidence building clinic demonstrates exactly what to do. She lets the horse takes his time and sniff the big, stuffed, bright pink pig. Excellent horsemanship.
