TEACHING DOG TRICKS TO A HORSE

Story and Photos by

LEE A. WOOD

Lianne B has a unique way of training her horse - she treats it like a dog.

Mz. B even refers to `Bart' as a dog.

I caught Lianne and Bart in the Livestock Arena in Prince George on a cloudy December morning.

One of the first, and most important commands to teach a dog is - stay.

Not only does this command make handling an animal easier, it can also save the animalsí life.

(Prince George, B. C. Canada - A tall lady holds her hand in the stop position.)
"STAY," COMMANDS LIANNE
(Prince George, B. C. Canada - A horse standing in a show ring.)
"I IS STAYING," SAYS BART
(Prince George, B. C. Canada - Lady, wearing a straw hat in front of a horse.)
TAKE MY HAT OFF, PLEASE
(Prince George, B. C. Canada - Horse tries to kiss lady - no hat.)
HOW'S THAT?

(Prince George, B. C. Canada - Horse has spilled a basket of goodies.)
HEY! THIS IS NOT A GAME. WHY DID YOU SPILL YOUR GAK?
(Prince George, B. C. Canada - Lady picks up stuff, horse tries to bite her hair.)
YELL AT ME WILL YOU!
(Prince George, B. C. Canada - lady scolds horse.)
DON'T YOU DARE EAT MY PONY TAIL
(Prince George, B. C. Canada - Horse hangs head.)
I'M SORRY!
(Prince George, B. C. Canada - Horse wraps neck around lady.)

AND KISSES.

The livestock arena at the Prince George Exhibition Grounds is used daily for exercising and training horses.
