N.Z. – Horsemanship – Cow Working
November 28, 2014 @ 8:00 am - December 2, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
This course also includes a horsemanship element to it as well. The cow working element includes the tracking of cattle and working cattle from the herd.
The cow or bovine species is a prey animal and relates to things in very much the same way as a horse does.
This course is a great example of combining principle and purpose. Cow working has a lot of the ingredients of other sports in that a horse has to be able to lengthen and shorten when rating a cow, much the same as a horse would when jumping combinations, he needs to have good weight distribution and impulsion, and show athleticism –and at the same time can be a lot of fun! Participants learn how to focus better and use their peripheral focus.
