Bud – Standing on the Pedestal for the First Time – Session 1
10.17 minutes – In this video Angie works with Bud and explains how she goes about teaching a horse to touch and then stand on a pedestal for the very first time. At first she has to slow him down as he misses the pedestal as he is more interested in engaging with Angie. Angie explains how she repositions herself and sets it up so Bud becomes curious in the object. Then she explains all the steps she follows to get to where he stands with both feet on the pedestal. She also talks about the importance of the timing of using positive reinforcement to touch Bud at the just the right time.
