One of the things that is very popular about horses is their power. Horses are considered to be one of the most powerful animals, especially if we talk about breeds like Belgian Drafts. Furthermore, horses have a lot of endurance as well so the first thought about them is that they never get tired or lazy. Well, this is the moment when people are wrong. As powerful as they are, horses can also be one of the laziest animals that you can find.
Adding the fact that they are very stubborn, sometimes it takes a lot of time to convince them to get up and help with different tasks. Instead of doing that, they lay on the grass the whole day and enjoy the sunshine on their face. Admit it, I am pretty sure that a lot of you have gotten angry at least once by this. Especially if your horse is going to perform in an important event and you have a very limited time in training sessions.
A lot of these trainers neglect this laziness and when the time comes for the actual performance, your horse might not deliver its best performance. This is the last thing that they want to happen but how can they deal with such situations. It seems impossible, doesn’t it? Well, there is a solution to everything and there is definitely a solution to this as well. There might be multiple solutions but we already have a very effective one in the video below and probably a lot of you are using it.
A great way to get our horses moving is to offer them food. As you can see, this trainer is offering this horse a carrot that she is holding in front of the horse. As the horse can’t reach it, it gets up and tries to get closer to the carrot to eat it. Well, it is such a great idea, isn’t it? Those who have not tried it yet, what are you waiting for? I am sure that you won’t be disappointed. Please have a look at the video below and share some love for this horse.
