Getting horses IN from Fields & Turning OUT
Make sure horses walk on and do not stall on field tracks as they may roll and get stuck in electrics.
Watch them all the way down and if they are not walking on, then drive them on – gently at first – with carrot stick.
Always correct slowly first, then increase pressure as horses very responsive.
