Drivers Training for Pigs

Posted by Afton Blight on July 7, 2013 at 9:35 PM

So how do you control a pig around the show ring? You can't, really. All you can do is train it leading up to fair and hope it cooperates when you enter the show arena. As Kaleb demonstrates in the video, the pig is tapped on the right side to make it go to the left and then tapped on the left side to make it turn to the right.

For the next two months, this is what every swine club member is training their pigs to do. It seems simple but it takes time and patience. The time spent in the show ring could be ten minutes or thirty minutes so the pig's stamina must be built up to avoid fatigue and irritation as it is directed around the ring for that unkown amount of time.
