Direct a Drifter

Martin Black shows how he teaches horses to stay with him–and not lean toward the barn or the herd.

Shine Buck Shine’s herd-bound tendency causes him to drift back toward the barn or toward other horses while gathering cattle. Martin Black shows how he makes that situation uncomfortable for the buckskin, and offers comfort when the gelding lines out in the right direction. It’s a mindset of getting the horse to follow Black’s feel, and it can help your herd-bound horse, too.
