5 Great Tips for Catching Your Horse
1. Use a small area so that your horse can get away if he feels
worried but is close enough for you to continue to influence him.
2. If your horse chooses to leave you, help him
to go by sending some energy towards him.
3. Stepping backwards away from your horse will
help to draw him to you.
4. Change your horse's expectation - catch him, perhaps give
him a treat, and let him go again.
4. Don't sneak around with the halter behind your back! Walk into the field
with the halter, catch him, put the halter on, give him a treat and let him go again.
5. Be patient, it may
take time to help your horse become more confident.
