Head-shy horses make haltering and bridling nearly impossible and downright dangerous with their head tossing, pulling away and even rearing up or striking out. Horses become head shy for a number of reasons. While some cases are caused by physical problems, most head-shy problems rest in the horse being afraid of his ears or muzzle being handled because the horse has never been introduced to the concept, he's had prior rough treatment or he's just disrespectful. If your horse cops an attitude when you try to work around his head, this lesson is your step-by-step guide to taking away his fear.

Blanka Thornton and Justin Winslow join Clinton for an Intermediate Series critique session that focuses on riding exercises. Clinton works with each horseman on their own, watching them practice a given exercise with their horse. He then critiques them and gives them tips to improve their technique. Some of Clinton's tips are minor--more fine-tuning than anything else--and at other times they're major. In either case, you'll see a huge improvement in the riders and their horses.
