The Farm Progress Show in Boone isn't just about farming.
Throughout the show, people can learn lessons and techniques on how to best control a horse through live demonstrations.
The demonstrations are put on by Tommy Garland, a horse trainer for 30 years.
He provides live demonstrations with an 8-year–old quarter horse gelding.
Garland says the main thing for trainers it to be confident and to gain the horse's trust.
Garland had the horse work around obstacles, which helps with trail riding.
He says there are three key words to training: Confidence, patience and respect.
"We teach people how to deal with their horse, how to do certain things. A horse is a large animal, so some people get scared and they don't know how to handle it, so I show them different methods they can use to help control their horse," said Garland.
Garland has been teaching his horse training skills at the show for the last five years.
Thursday was the final day of this year's Farm Progress Show.
