Preventing Shying

most popular ridden video lesson

Not all horses shy and some tend to shy more than others. This can be exacerbated if the horse has been off work for a time because when not being ridden, the horse's natural reaction to fear is to 'leave'. Thus the horse has been 'practicing' this flight behaviour while off work and it will require your focus to regain the horse's confidence, engage him or her with your lesson and keep them in the bubble.
