Please check with your local state or territory regarding any restrictions on the use of prodders. We do not recommend their use on horses even if it is legal in your area.
There are alternative ways to encourage horses to keep moving in a particular direction including:
- using flappers, backing boards, canes with flags attached, or the hand, arm or body of the stock handler
- minimising distractions that may cause a horse to baulk or turn back
- considering the configuration of collecting areas, races and ramps to make movement easy and minimise stress. The use of wider races (compared to those used for cattle) with smooth open corners and no obstacles (including flapping hessian/plastic, etc.) will facilitate easier movement and loading of horses.
