Desensitize a Horse to Whip Cracking

November 15, 2013

Joe Williams of Skyler’s Acres in Gillette, NJ is an expert horse trainer. When Gucci (seen in the video below) arrived for training, Joe needed to expose him to a wide variety of surprises and noises that Gucci had never experienced as a show horse.


Joe uses a Karaka whip from New Zealand to help desensitize Gucci to unexpected noises like firecracker and gun shot sounds that he will likely experience in the outdoors.
