When it comes to raising foals, a lot of people make the mistake of only loving and rubbing on them and then wonder why their cute babies grow up to be 1,000-pound terrors. If you want a horse to be a respectful, safe partner, you have to prove to him that you’re a knowledgeable leader and show him what is expected of him. The younger you can get to a horse and the more consistent you can be, the better you will be at preventing disrespectful or fearful behavior from developing in the first place. In this lesson learn about desensitizing a foal with objects that move and make a noise. Also learn how to teach your foal to move away from pressure with the Touch and Rub Method exercise.
