With Scott's groundwork training program, the Training Stick is his most widely used tool. It is not only used to sensitize and "keep away" those pushy and dominant horses, but is also used for desensitizing that spooky horse. Attachments such as plastic bags and large flags can be easily taken on and off. Being 3.5-feet long with a 5.5-foot string, the Training Stick is lightweight and easy to use! It is also very well balanced so your arm doesn't tire quickly. To become the leader in your horse's life, your need to gain his attention and respect, and the Training Stick will safely give you the confidence you need to get the job done!
