Horses rely upon us for more than food and shelter. How we treat them has a huge impact on their well-being. It’s vital that care-givers know how to approach, handle, transport and, in some instances, breed their horses. Using appropriate techniques and ensuring that we provide the necessary physical conditions that ensure a horse’s comfort and safety are a good start. But it’s also important to pay attention to what your horse is telling you through it’s physical movements and the sounds it makes. Doing so can help ensure the safety of both you and your horse.
