This is Raleigh's third time under saddle. I've been trying an experiment with him where I train him using predominantly pressure-free, attraction-based techniques. How do you teach a horse to go forward without kicking, cropping or using any pressure? By targeting a ball in front of him, he's attracted to something to move towards, instead of moving away from something unpleasant behind him (like a crop or kick). I first taught him to pick things up in his mouth when I taught him to paint. That's where he learned to hold a brush, ball, and other objects.
