Have you ever wanted to learn Indian horse training secrets? Did the tribes actually have an Indian horse trainer?
Do you know how the Indians got so good with horses and equine training? They kept learning.
In fact, it was the Mohican Indians who really studied the equine.
To break the horse they never broke his spirit by riding and riding until he gave in. Instead, they’d take lots of days handling the animal. They’d talk to it. Feed it. And very, very, very gently get on his back.
In fact, they’d spend hours over the animal’s back with a blanket. Once the animal understood what the Indians wanted then they had no trouble riding him. It’s a great technique.
And that’s just one of the ways equines have been trained throughout history.
Another Indian horse training technique was to blindfold the horse and take him to water. The water had to be fairly deep for a very important reason. If the horse ever bucked, the water would make him tired very quickly and he’d have to quit bucking because he would simply run out of energy. Plus, if the Indian got bucked off, he would have a pretty soft landing. As you can imagine though, the horse didn’t have a lot of bucking power in higher water despite his powerful strength.
Another important part of Indian horse training is how quickly they developed a relationship with their horse. Their horse was revered. It was honored and treated as one of their best friends. It turns out this is key in horse training because the better a horse is treated (most of the time), the more he willingly does for you and the more he trusts you. In turn, you’re able to trust him more since he’s more amicable.
