An excerpt from "Round Pen First Steps [Downloadable PDF version]":

 

"Spook in Place" is one of many lessons your horse needs to be taught and here's what it's all about: You're out on the trail and something unexpected, perhaps a skunk, runs by. Maybe it's a motorcyclist, a plastic bag, a barking dog... it doesn't matter. As stated, we can't foresee every possible situation, and we can't expect to eradicate our horse's fear, so we need to teach our horse "how to deal." We do this by raising and lowering the amount of "fear pressure" we exert. We start by showing him what is expected at .01 "pounds" of pressure and build from there. Remember this: You know how uncomfortable you are when you're scared? You don't want to be that way, neither does your horse. He'd far prefer being relaxed. We'll build his ability to cope by building pressure, then releasing the pressure - over and over, as if strengthening a bicep.

First, what you'll need to do is look around your house, yard or barn for "scary things." That is to say, you need to go find 20 items that might scare your horse - but each to a different degree. The pen in your pocket will (most likely) not scare your horse as much as a blowing tarp and the cap on your head isn't as terrifying as a child's noise-making toy or a coffee can full of rocks. Find 20 objects (on all ends of the horror spectrum), outfit your horse with protective boots, and head out to the round pen. (rpt)
