Clinton Anderson: Expand a Foal's Comfort Zone

Here's how to use desensitizing with a lead rope to help take the spook out of a young horse.

Here, I demonstrate a key exercise you can use to help a young horse expand his comfort zone. You'll learn to use a lead rope to desensitize a foal to objects coming at him quickly. He'll learn to stand still and relax as

you throw the lead over and around his body.

Watch as Clinton demonstrates in the video below.
