EQUUS - - Conversati­ons -

Af­ter I have moved the horse around for 20 min­utes, I of­fer a friendly slow rub di­rectly on his head. This shows him I am go­ing to be re­laxed and pa­tient. For safety, I rub with the arm clos­est to the horse. I also stand by his shoul­der as far be­hind the swing of his head as I can reach and keep my arm be­tween his head and my face. If he be­comes vig­or­ous in swing­ing his head around to avoid my hand, I will move him an­other 10 to 20 min­utes. Then I try slowly again.
