The Henderson Saddle Club is excited to be hosting the Metro Mounted Unit Obstacle Competition on May 27th.  Click here for more information.

The Metro Mounted Unit presented an important and fun filled desensitizing class at the Henderson Saddle Association grounds on Saturday May 6th. Steve and Maile discussed and demonstrated several ground work methods to train your horse. One method was the use of a plastic bag on a pole as the most basic method of teaching your horse to trust and respect you as the “Alpha Horse”. A quick check of the horses, showed 12 of the 14 reacting to or panicking over the bag. A very windy day added to the horse”s sensory challenge as it did also, to that of the instructors and participants, The Mounted Police Unit featured numerous mounted demonstrations using a tilting bridge, a large inverted wooden box top and a rubber manhole cover. Steve showed us that the obstacles do not have to be elaborate or expensive to make. A simple box can be filled with a variety of things to desensitize your horse. Plastic bottles, water and cut up hoses to name a few. He also stressed the importance of baby steps along with continuous training and retraining, We wish to invite you to the upcoming Obstacle Competition to be held at Henderson Saddle Association from 9-2 on May 27th hosted by the Friends of the Metro mounted unit. It is open to all riders and will be divided into beginner and advanced categories. Spectators are invited to the event, also. There will be raffle prizes, and a T-shirt booth benefitting the Metro Mounted Police . Food and drinks will be available at the HSA chuck wagon. Please go to Hendersonsaddleclub.com for more details. HSA wish to send a big thanks out to Steve and Maile of the LVMPD for their great clinic. Here are some pictures from that clinic.  sensory3
