Shetland Pony Horse Whispering

 See availability update below

It’s Horse Whispering Day at Shetland Pony Club Summer Day Camp. Let’s learn more about it in this week’s video.

Learning to use the round pen

The children start by watching Rosemary as she shows them how we train our ponies in natural horsemanship, using a special Shetland Pony-sized cage called a round pen.

Rosemary is in the round pen with Shetland Pony Mufasa.  She sends him away as he would in the wild and after a while, he stops and licks and chews his lips.

Is Mufasa good at Horse Whispering?

Can Rosemary get Mufasa to understand her?  Will he follow her and stop and start when she does in the round pen?

Shetland Pony Tricks

Rosemary teaches the children to use carrot sticks, which are not whips.  They help to get the pony to move around. Soon the children have the ponies standing on logs.  Which pony is the best at this?

Watch the video to find out more.
