In a previous post, I talked about Fear and Anxiety around your horse. For many, nothing invokes fear faster than a hot horse.
I've had the opportunity to work with gaited horse clinician, Gary Lane, on several occasions. He gives excellent advice on how to calm a hot horse and how to create a relaxed horse that you can rely on to take you wherever you want to go.
In this video, Gary shows how he works a hot horse to get him to relax.
