Clinton Anderson: Leading a Foal With the Halter

Watch as Clinton shows you how to use a long lead the right way, so you can teach a foal how to lead from the lightest halter pressure.

Simply pulling on the halter and hoping a foal will figure out what you want is not the way to teach him to lead. It's scary for a foal to feel that pressure behind his poll, and pulling on the halter without first teach him what you want (via the butt rope) can cause him to panic and flip over.

Watch as Clinton demonstrates the process in the video below.
