Arabian Horse Training Guide

Updated on August 21, 2010

Arabian Horse Training

Arabian horses are one of the most famous breeds of horses with ample mention in books of history too. They are known to be very docile and loyal. The rider themselves or the trainer could do the Arabian horse training. Decide first on how you would like your horse to be trained. You have to maintain a special bond between you and your horse if you want to train him all by yourself. Furthermore hiring a private trainer could be very expensive too.

Put in mind that no two horses are alike before you start training Arabian horse. Some horses grasp very fast and can be trained faster, whereas some horses are slow comparatively. Arabian horse training, however, is actually quite easy.

If you look into history, you would find that Arabian horses were used to protect tents and as war horses back then. In addition, those who were allowed to mate to maintain the lineage are the best horses. You can be assured that the Arabian horses today are the offspirngs of the very best Arabian horses in history.

Arabian horses are generally intelligent and fast learners so training them is not that hard. Some reinforcement such as salt lick associated with training could speedy up the their learning process. They develop a good connection with the rider they could trust. Never try to hit or whip an Arabian horse. Doing that would result in them losing trust in humans and it would make them difficult to train eventually.

As soon as they learn the good ones, the Arabian horses could learn wrong practices too. They could be very impatient with new, abusive and inexperienced trainer. It is recommendable that a trainer with experience and confidence would try training an Arabian horse.

Arabian horses are not very patient with children either and can get stressed up seeing kids around them. If you have kids who would like to ride an Arabian horse, preferably let them get little experience on riding camps and then venture out to ride an Arabian horse.

You have to understand that the horse is just like one of the family. Treat him with love, compassion and respect and you would never face any problems training him. They are very sensitive animals and they could easily get intimidated. They need to have complete trust in their trainer to have a good training. The trainer can win this trust by treating the horse with due respect.

Arabian horse training can be very exciting and fulfilling. If you want your horse to be obedient and easy to handle in the training, you have to give your horse all the love he deserves whether you train him yourself or you hire a personal trainer.
