Angel & Dudley Having Fun Over the Barrels!
One principle Dudley believes very strongly in is that horses appreciate variety. They can become bored with their jobs just like we can. Dudley builds FUN into his training methods by allowing the horses to try things that they do not ordinarily see and do during the course of their routine training. Here, we see Dudley introducing Angel to some jumping exercises over a barrel obstacle he has set up for her. The obstacle is about 3.5- 4 feet high. As you can see, Angel is enjoying herself and is eager to approach the jump. Dudley redirects her to keep her listening to him, then sets her up to make her approach on his cue. She's learning to listen/feel for his cue while having fun with the obstacle!
