If you’ve never encountered a stubborn horse,
consider yourself lucky. These horses simply
refuse to leave the vicinity of the barn or their
favorite companions. Their defiance can take a variety of forms, including jigging, bucking, forcefully backing up, rearing, or even hurling themselves on the ground.
The good news is that a horse may be trained to overcome his difficulties and move forward voluntarily wherever and whenever you ask by using a few basic training exercises.
But stubbornness in horses sometimes is not
stubbornness, but it is often a sign that the horse wants to communicate something to you. Horses are very gregarious and herd animals. They are built to obey since staying with their herd is essential to their survival.
If a horse is not paying attention to you, investigate his motive to learn why. They either want to resort to pleasure, food, or companions in order to escape discomfort, agony, or danger. For instance, some horses in riding schools have learned helplessness, which makes it simple for people to mistake their sadness for stubbornness. However, you’ll find that they stop being stubborn once you start speaking to them in a kind and understandable manner.
The majority of non-compliance behaviors
originate and can be remedied by exploring
whether the question was learly stated initially.
Miscommunication due to the incorrect application of aids, or conflicting aids, resulting in desensitized or “misbehaving” horses, lie at the source of much purportedly stubborn behavior.
Although the term “stubbornness” is typically used negatively, connoting a perverse or illogical lack of flexibility, it can also refer to a trait that is justified and even praiseworthy. Think of someone who is obstinately determined to find a solution or to see a task through to completion. We might need to take into account this advantageous flip side if subsequent horse study reveals stubbornness to be a personality feature.
The video was uploaded on YouTube by Kim’s
owner and although it’s short in length it is very fun to watch. That’s why it has more than 2.8 million views and although it was posted nearly 9 years ago, it is still viewed and shared by many people from all over the world. We think it is because of the huge horse who has a gorgeous coat color, mane, and tail.
