  • This is my way of doing join up! 
Hope you enjoy! 


Start by taking your horse into a round pen.  
Free lunge your horse. Make sure you keep eye contact the whole time. Ask them to switch directions every so often, to make sure they are paying attention. Do this for at least 5 minutes.

  • Now, drop your whip (if you used one) and turn your back to your horse. Don't make eye contact, turn as your horse runs around you. 
Your horse should now slow down and eventually stop, and begin to look at you, then make his/her way over to you. They may nudge you, or stand behind you.

  • Now, reward him. Maybe with a carrot or a scratch, as long as it's positive. 
You should now walk around your horse, patting him as you go. Try to pick up their feet. Get them to give to you.  
After these exercises, you should be able to start walking around in the round pen and your horse follow!
