Training to Accept Hobbles

Forum Posts from the Past on Horses and Equines


Posted By: Kim
Would like to train my horses to accept hobbles. What are the best type(s) of hobbles to use? And what is the best and safest approach for teaching the horse that hobbles are a form of restraint? I heard that some horses take to hobbles so easily that within minutes they can take off at a gallop! ( I have access to an arena that we plan on using) One horse could care less about objects around the legs ect..., but the other horse is a bit of a bonehead and I don't want him to panic. Thanks, Kim
