I have a gelding that I worked with for a few month now. He was hit a lot because he is so frighten of almost everything and of human. I worked with the Dually Halter on him and he is much better, I can touch him and catch him with no problem. The big problem is still that he is frighten of objects, I worked with him with the tarpaulin but I fail. He just don't want to see that it won't hurt him. I took shading net and with a few times of work he is okay with the shading net. He is also accept the plastic bag but after a day or two when I try the bag again he is still jumpy.
Should I just keep going and let him choose when he will accept the object of training? I am not sure what to do? Maybe it is still me, my body language. I am a newbie and learn myself with Monty's University videos.
