Chase the trouble – Even when your horse is frightened of chickens

Gareth and Rose (lovely AQHA Mare) had their ride interrupted but the tiny T-Rex’s who eat around the arena. One of the biggest safety issues for horses who are seemingly “spooky” is that they often fixate on their fear which interrupts training. Gareth took this opportunity to help Rose with her natural herding instinct and literally chase the troubles away. Though we think these things are small and of no worry’s, horses do see their fears as something that could potentially eat them. Buck always tells his riders to chase the trouble. Gareth got off the green horse, practiced a little groundwork and helped Rose face her fear in a safe and none threatening way. And, it was really cute.
