Herd order is a natural instinct to protect horses which cannot be removed, instead you must join the herd ranking.
Whenever I give lessons there is always one ingredient that hinders owners, hierarchy, people give in to quickly when their horses say no.
The ranking order instinct is the most important tool in horse training. To be the leader and teacher, your horse must always say to you: “what can I do for you”.
Once you establish yourself as the lead horse, all you have to do is know how to communicate what you want, your horse will obey out of instinctive respect.
