5 TIPS FOR BOND­ING WITH YOUR HORSE

Your Horse (UK) - - Horse Care -

1

Let him live with a herd — he’ll be hap­pier for it.

2

If (in his eyes) you’ve done some­thing wrong, you have to work to earn cred­its and get back in his good books.

3

If there’s any­thing he doesn’t like — such as be­ing wormed, clipped or vac­ci­nated — then get some­one else to be there for it. This way, he won’t as­so­ciate the un­pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence with you.

4

He will lis­ten more if you’re calm with him. If you dis­play neg­a­tiv­ity (such as shout­ing) he’ll feed off this and mis­be­have.

5

If he has to be on his own, you must be his best friend. Make life in­ter­est­ing and his en­vi­ron­ment en­joy­able. Spend lots of time with him. For­age for in­ter­est­ing herbs and put them in the field for him to nib­ble. Groom him as a horse would. He’s go­ing to need a lot of at­ten­tion.
