Halter Breaking Part 2 with Peter Campbell


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 8

In part two of this halter breaking series, Peter Campbell continues to build communication with his young horse, this time from the ground. He touches upon several basic subjects such as haltering, leading, and feet handling.

Peter again emphasizes the importance of taking your time and to direct rather than correct. It’s easy to get in a fight with a young horse, so remember to have simple expectations at first and don’t worry if things aren’t right the first time. This particular filly is sensitive around her eyes and ears, so Peter takes some time to increase her confidence in these areas.
