Equine Agility Training a horse to do Horse Agility is not all that difficult. Firstly there had no headcollars, lead ropes or other restraints, secondly they had no whips or sticks to hit or threaten the horse if it makes a mistake and thirdly the equines move freely so if they wanted they could, in fact run away..
The ultimate aim of any horse agility is to work the horse free over obstacles, you do need to practise if it’s going to work! The way to start training horses is to first of all practice walking and trotting with your horse on a lead rope and see how much he responds to you.

This is because it contains so many important elements of building and maintaining relationships, things such as trust, confidence, respect, communication. There are many reasons why equine agiltiy is considered a most effective thing to practise with any horse.

Getting your horse to walk in and around the obsticals when asked to do so. Your body language and verbal commands for each of these movements must be the same every time.
Groundwork, therapy and training all add up to you having a really good relationship with your horses, bonding makes it safer when you go out on rides where traffic may be involved.
