How We Train Our Stunt Horses
Training horses to do stunts is a specialist skill that requires extensive time and effort. Horses are highly intelligent creatures and have excellent memories, so when a stunt has been perfected, all it takes is a visual or physical cue to ask the horse to perform the act.
We have a team of experienced and knowledgeable trainers that have worked in this sector for many years. Training requires an incredible bond of trust which is built up over time and is gained through both groundwork and ridden work.
Teaching a horse to do something against its instincts, such as lying down, takes great skill. As such, it is important that when we hire our stunt horses out, their main handler accompanies them.
