This extrinsic training equipment works on the horse’s mind to motivate forward motion. The Giddy-Up Rope is a length of thick braided yarn held by the rider with his elbow against his side while swinging it from left to right rapidly behind the rider’s legs. The Giddy-Up introduces movement to the peripheral vision of the horse. This movement will be perceived by the horse to be dangerous, and yet no pain comes of it. The horse is likely to advance quickly, moving away from the perceived intruder.
