BEGINNER LEVEL: How to Desensitize Your Horse to Loud Sounds and Other Distractions

Watch this video on why and how I desensitize my horses to sudden loud sounds. It is so important to desensitize your horse. Sounds, motions, animals and anything new can scare your horse and you, or a loved one, can be seriously injured. I’ve created multiple videos featuring the techniques I used on each horse to eliminate the fear of sudden loud sounds or unfamiliar distractions. In these videos I will show how to train your horse to adapt to any sound, motion, or sight that they may come across during a daily ride, training or trail riding adventure.

In the process of training your horse, you must follow through. Don’t stop halfway. Complete the process, no matter how long it takes. Once they know you are not giving up, they will comply. They will learn that they can trust you and, they can learn to enjoy learning. Horses can be stubborn. They can push your buttons, get you upset and, fight you the whole way. But, if you remain calm and consistent, you will develop a relationship. They will love you and want you to teach them. Watch this video to see how it works. Enjoy!

About Dan Stroud

Besides my family, I have two great passions in my life, competition armwrestling with the World Armwrestling League and my horses. I have been riding horses since I was 3 years old. Horses are spirit creatures that have a highly developed intuition and sixth sense which gives them the ability to perceive a person's emotional state, their attitude, personality and hidden intentions. If you will learn how to teach them with kindness and never give up, they will respect you and your children, and become very loyal friends for life.I wish you many happy trails in your life. – Dan Stroud
