Most tricks, even the complicated ones, start with a simple trick or are made up of several simple tricks joined together.
So start by teaching your horse these 10 super simple tricks and then use them to build lots of different tricks or even design your own!
For example to teach your horse to do a ‘Simple Bow’ just break the trick into small steps. First teach your horse to put his head down and then teach him to put his leg forward. Then just ask your horse to do the two movements together.
And there you have a ‘Simple Bow’!
Below is a list of simple tricks that you can teach your horse in a fairly short time. Once your horse has mastered these tricks they can be used as the beginnings of a whole range of tricks.
If you teach your horse these 10 simple tricks you will have developed an excellent relationship with your horse and also taught them parts of lots of tricks.
It’s then just a matter of joining them together to create more complicated tricks or using them in different ways to create your own tricks!
