🐮Purpose Driven Horsemanship: Cow Working🐮
Cow working is one of the ultimate tests of balance; mentally, emotionally and physically.
For decades, particular horses have been bred to have a heightened awareness of motion, this is known as “cow sense” when they have something to “track” it increases their focus and athleticism.
Every horse has the opportunity to understand this concept by teaching the horses the game of “relief” with both moving and stationary targets. This game will improve all facets of their skill set.
If you are looking for a camp to put your foundation to practice to increase focus, sensitivity, athleticism and motivation in you and your horse; there is no better way to do it than working cows.
