Walks Downtown Savannah
Taking the horses downtown provided lots of opportunity for desensitization training. A primary goal during training to get the horses basically bombproof, meaning they don't have any response to sudden noises or movements. They are exposed to sounds of trucks, cars, sirens. They meet all types of people and deal with crowds. Some businesses even allow us to come inside which puts us in close spaces and walking on different flooring. 

Photos from our visits are below and throughout the website. Enjoy!
