How To Train a Camel to Ride

How To Train a Camel To Ride


Training a camel to accept a saddle and rider is a VERY easy thing to accomplish, IF you and your camel have the foundational training right.


More often than not we get people coming to us about camel riding issues. It could be a bucking camel, a camel not following instructions or simply a ‘bad experience’ at the saddling and rider stage.


Like anything when handling camels (or animals), there can be so many variables, but more often than not it comes back to ONE thing: That the foundational training (what we call Level 1) was not properly established or implemented BEFORE the saddle and rider stage (Level 2).


We know this, because we’ve been there! And we share some stories with our camels on how we rectified those ‘challenging” situations.


The good new is, if you’re new to training and handling camels, or about to work with a camel that’s new, you can get it right the FIRST time.


In this podcast episode we take you through the step by step process on how to train a camel to accept a saddle and rider. So get ready to take some notes as we give so much value in this episode that your Camel Confidence will sky rocket!
