Foal Handling is by far the best investment you can make in your colt or filly. At Safe Horse Training, your foal, weanling or yearling is handled twice a day, learning respect for the human and also desensitization to scary objects. It is so important to not only desensitize the youngsters, teaching them to accept ropes, tarps, plastic bags and such, but to also sensitize them as well. Sensitizing the babies, meaning, teaching them to move away from pressure is one of the biggest lessons we fail to teach at a young age. The initial handling of a young horse has a huge impact on its future. Start ’em right and eliminate problems before they even start. #startemright
