Video Description

Alfredo Hernandez introduces this horse to his work in hand on a small circle with a side rein on the outside of the circle. He does along the wall as the horse begins to understand the use of the whip. The horse breaks free as he is loosening the side rein, and we get to see what the cowboys call a join up. Please be patient enough to watch this through to the conclusion! This is a great example of how to catch a loose horse in an enclosed space. Watch as Alfredo masterfully works through the anxiety of the horse in this work.
