Correct handling as a foal gives every horse a head start in life. When your youngster is old enough to be ridden,
it will be no big deal.
Many people ask me to “retrain” their horses to make them confident and relaxed around humans. These people think they can erase their horse’s memory and train them from a clean slate.
That’s impossible. No-one can erase any horse’s memory. That’s why it’s so important to start every foal correctly in the first place.
Don’t wait until your foal is six months old, don’t even wait until he’s two months old—start teaching your foal to be relaxed and confident from the very first week of his life.
Handling your foal is like painting on a blank canvas. What you paint is up to you—every foal can be taught to be confident and relaxed, just as every foal can be taught to resist and fight.
“This foal is mad, his mother was mad, all this breed are mad.” Right?
“Just tie him up and let him pull. He’ll soon learn he can’t get away.” Right?
“Sack him out. Flap that flag all over him until he gets used to it.” Right?
Many long-held beliefs are wrong. They’ve always been wrong.
And it’s always the horses who suffer.
