Episode 47: Jane Jackson Pt 3: Learning To Be Brave


In this week’s episode Jane Jackson describes a procedure she used to help her very sensitive, very vigilant horse become comfortable walking with her out away from the barn.

Jane followed a five day pattern. Day one was exploration day. Day two was foundation lessons day. On day three she built short chains using the foundation behaviors. On day four she introduced a relatively new behavior. And on day five she combined that new behavior with the foundation lessons to produce even longer chains. On day six she moved to a new location and began the process all over again. She describes in detail what she did on each of these days - and even more important - why.
