It’s pretty difficult to ride or handle a horse without catching him first, so it’s valuable to teach a horse how to be caught early on in the training process. Bryan Neubert teams up with his wife Patti to demonstrate how they can work together to prepare two young horses to be caught. First the horses must learn to separate and find comfort standing on their own. Then they must accept the approach of the human followed by acceptance of being touched. As they become more confident in seeking the comfort you offer, they’ll put more effort into allowing themselves to be caught.
