- Calming the Nervous HorseThis session will show you new techniques to help calm a nervous, spooky or “unpredictable” horse without having to lunge, turnout or exhaust the horse’s body. By addressing the mind and spirit of the horse, we can teach the horse to look to us for guidance and comfort in any type of situation, without needing to tire their body.
