Early in training, the target behavior might be simple and something the horse can accomplish. For example, if the horse is relaxed while standing near the water, call it success! Reward the desired relaxed stand by making a wide, arching turn away from the water, and then taking a short break before repeating the exercise.
As the horse progresses through training, the target behavior will change and might include standing at the edge of a moving stream for 10 seconds, taking one step into a pond, walking through a water obstacle, and, finally, crossing a river. Changing behavior takes time and persistence. For example, if you push your horse to step further into the water until she starts to freeze, fidget, snort, bob her head, step backward, or spin, it would only serve to repeat the same well-practiced cycle of avoidance that you are trying to change.
Vary the depth of the water, strength of the current, and visual properties of the water i. Also, set up training sessions that include a canal, stream, river, puddles, and pond to ensure that the training generalizes to different types of water crossings.
