I don't take more than 6 goats (maybe one more youngster) when I do training hikes and am by myself.

For a larger group or the whole herd I take the dogs with me.

Also, every goat in the training group will wear halter or collar and a leading rope. For the goats without a saddle to secure the leading rope on when I don't lead them I use a short bit of rope, long enough to grab but so short that the goat won't step on it or gets tangled.

Having the goats trained to come to you when called will help you in many situations.
