Topic: Basic Handling is all those things that we do handling our horses daily that are outside of normal training or work time. Issues related to leading, catching, picking up hooves, deworming, shots or tying can become huge challenges for both our horse and us. Learning how to reduce defensiveness and build trust by paying attention to our horse’s energy level and body language are the keys to resolving day to day challenges.
