Catherine Haddad uses Response Training with Hotmail.
In this new video from Catherine Haddad we get to hear of her season with Hotmail and his response to the ribbon ceremonies in Europe which are more exuberant than in the States. With her background in Response Training, Catherine works with Hotmail on creating a relaxation response to tense circumstances rather than flight or exploding. She first asks for bend and submission as she turns him on a small circle, crossing his hind legs. Catherine explains how this transfers to under saddle to work on the freeze response when startled. They then work on backing and a the release of going forward. The plastic bag on the end of the whip is next, showing how he learns to drop his head and relax and then follow the very thing that scared him.
