I think the carrot stretch is very helpful but it could cause your horse to beg for treats. It would be nice to find a variation with out the carrot. that's just my opinion. also, take a look at clinton Anderson flexing lateral and horizontal, it's pretty much the same. otherwise, great video and this was very helpful!:)

Thank you!When I went to a barrel clinic once,we did stretching with one of the horses,and I didn't like how she went right into the stretches without slowly easing into them.She did,however,warm the horse up,so I guess that was alright...except it was a participant's horse,so it hadn't done the stretches before.These were really helpful!

Thanks Barb, when I did the ham string stretch and Black knocked me over. Black loves the carrot stretch.
