5 TIPS FOR BONDING WITH YOUR HORSE
Let him live with a herd — he’ll be happier for it.
If (in his eyes) you’ve done something wrong, you have to work to earn credits and get back in his good books.
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.
He will listen more if you’re calm with him. If you display negativity (such as shouting) he’ll feed off this and misbehave.
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.
