Natural Horsemanship
Warrick approaching the Icelandic for the first time.
In order to handle the horse, Warrick needed to rope her.
Rubbing the horse with a stick to instill her with confidence.
She was VERY protective of her left side, so Warrick started
with touching her on that side with a stick.
Preparing the Icelandic to accept a nose band.
Warrick standing on her left side, rubbing her. He
was eventually able to pet her entire left side.
Warrick touching her for the first time.
Warrick stepping behind the Icelandic, driving her forward.
This wild 3 year old Icelandic horse was pasture bred and never handled by a human
until this training session. Warrick worked with her in a 12 ft. x 12 ft. stall for 2 hours.
