Problem Horses - Aslan's Story 5 - Accept the Rider with Confidence Part II [Slideshow]

Gabi Neurohr Problem Horses - Aslan accept the rider

Aslan keeps being very sceptical of the rider. With horses who already made bad experiences, it is very important to respect the horse's fears and not go further than the horse is confident with. In this session, he finally gave green lights, for the rider to sit upright and to actually start moving without panicking. 

Aslan kept being sceptical of the rider, he didn’t give us green lights to go to the next step which is actually sitting upright and maybe doing the first steps.

Deep routed bad experiences

Aslan kept being sceptical of the rider, he didn’t give us green lights to go to the next step which is actually sitting upright and maybe doing the first steps.

Here you see his 4. session where we worked on his confidence with the rider on his back. During this session, we could finally progress and do the next step. Usually, with a normal 3-year-old colt all this process up to this point happens in only 1 - 2 sessions if the horse is well prepared.
