Desensitizing doesn’t have to be a battle! In fact, if you find yourself chasing your horse around, it’s not desensitizing anymore, it’s flooding! In this lesson, you’ll see how you can use systematic desensitization and counter conditioning with your horse! You’ll also learn about start buttons! Did you know you can teach your horse a signal to let you know when they are ready for you to begin??
