I have had this video on my phone for some time – the sound is not so good – but I was also reluctant in case some people took this lesson as a blanket lesson for all horses. Distracting horses, as I show in this video, can be an important lesson. But please take note – this horse had a big disconnection; I only ever used the flag quickly and briefly – not enough to annoy him – the flag was big but I felt it had to be to beat his level of disconnection. This is not something you need to do with all horses especially timid horses that are scared of people/ education (if you don’t know the different, don’t do it). I encourage you to watch it right through to see the change in him – it was a big change.
