Consistent Contact

Consistent contact that does not pull is the key to establishing respectful boundaries which tell the horse where not to go.  When leading a horse in hand, gather up the slack in the lead rope or reins and push the horse forward into your contact.  The lead rope or reins should not go “loopy” or loose while leading in hand.
