Polly Hobbled – Good Horses Stand Hobbled

DSCF0065The benefits of hobble training escapes attention these days. It’s sad because hobble training:

1.  Teaches patience.

2.  Teaches a horse to remain calm while their feet are caught in something the horse didn’t expect.

3.  Gives the rider the option of overnight restraint without a fence.

4. Let’s you do ranch chores when your horse doesn’t ground tie. (Okay, maybe this isn’t a very good reason when there’s fence work to be done!)

    Another good temporary option is Galagher’s smart fence. But if you can teach them to be hobbled, it seems better definitely.
