How to Do a Join Up with your horse
Horseriderchamp productions presents this video on how to do join-up with a horse. Here, in this video, the lady demonstrates this with her one year old horse 'majestic. She says that join-up is basically creating bond or relationship with your horse and there are three signals to join-up. The first signal she says is to have horse's one ear locked on you when they start to look on you and start to make small circles, and she says that once you get the signals, when you turn to speak to them you need to keep your head and eyes down so that your body language shows to them that you are harmless. She then says that you need to practice doing this until the horse wants to be your partner. She then chases her horse to make quick small circles continuously and she says that if you want to turn the horse in opposite direction, you just need to put the stick in front of your horse and she demonstrates the same to you too. Now she confirms to you that she got her first signal, her horse keeping its one ear locked on her while making circles. Now she turns the horse around again and then she stands with her back facing the direction where her horse is asks it to come to her. Then she tells you that the horse should stay with her when she walks and demonstrates the same. Thus she says that the join-up is made with her horse 'majestic'. She also reminds you that sometimes horses may make you wait longer to do the join-up but the wait is fully worth the wait.
