The Value of Leg Restraint Training

YOUNG STOCK

  • Foals are trained from 14 days old and it is to protect them from injury in fences for the rest of their lives. To protect thewire injury investment and to save massive Veterinary costs if caught in a fence as so many are. The injury on the right would not have happened if the horse had been leg restraint trained.
  • To put calmness on them and to take away the 'flight response' which is the biggest danger that faces them in their domesticated World these days.
  • To teach them to think things through rather than panic, rip and tear.
  • To get them used to worst scenarios and to make them good all around safe Horses of the future.

'GREEN HORSES'

  • To take a look at the true underlying personality as an assessment. This let's me know what I am truly dealing with. The personality beneath the surface. Is the Horse prone to 'lose it'? Is it a panicky type, is it cool, calm and collected. Is it a thinker? Would it kill you if you got hung up? 
  • To teach all Horses that I handle, to stand on 3 legs for unless they are taught, they can never be the best shoeing Horse. because they use the Farrier as their 4th leg and some will drop them, thereby commence the ruination of the shoeing routine.
  • To be able to handle the back legs of dangerous Horses and to make them safe for Owners 
  • To remove the danger from when a Rider may come off in the future, to save them being dragged and kicked
  • To enable you to back young horses calmly and safely, without risk of panic and injury to either you or the horse
