Training Your Foal

Raising a foal: From birth to backing

Training a foal is no child’s play! 

<--break->It can be a fascinating experience, but it requires the correct mixture of experience, horse knowledge and intuitive feeling.

Correct training follows from knowledge of how horses develop physically, mentally, and behaviourally. A horse which has been treated incorrectly as a foal may never be reliable. It may be prone to suspicion and panic reactions throughout its entire life. A well-trained foal is much easier to back, and its first hack will be a less risky undertaking. 
In addition to the essential basic knowledge, the author offers tips and suggestions to ensure the successful training of your foal.
