What is a Cue and How to Use them in Horse Training

The cues we give our horses play a big role in how they behave, but what exactly is a cue and how do cues work? Simply put, a cue is a signal to do something, and we train our horses to respond to signals from our legs, reins, voice, and body. Cues can be intentional or unintentional, some are trained and some our horses just pick up on.

Cues determine how we behave too, and while some cues we recognize, such as the seat belt buzzer in our cars reminding us to buckle up, other cues we respond to unconciously, like stepping inside our front door cues us to start taking off our shoes and coat.

In today’s video, I talk a bit more about what a cue really is and how cues become more subtle, plus we also discuss how something called “micro-rythyms” could be involved in our interactions with our own horses.
