What is Imprint Training?
Imprinting is a survival mechanism for animals. Newborn animals generally imprint on the first large creature looming over them within the first hours of birth. The young animals imprint, or attach, on to this creature, usually its mother, with habitual trust.
We can use imprint training to our advantage in a way that allows foals to imprint on their dams, as well as humans, to create a lifelong trusting bond.
Advantages of Imprint Training:
Imprinting is the art of training an animal in such a way that stimuli, which would ordinarily be unnatural to the horse, are accepted intuitively.
In other words, the foal grows up never knowing he should be afraid of plastic bags, tarps, gun shots, etc. They are as natural to him as eating.
Imprint training also sensitizes certain areas to give to pressure. Do you want a horse that will lead at one day old, will yield naturally to leg pressure, or disengage its hindquarters? You want an imprint trained foal!
