Don’t Push It!

Be mindful of any influence your horse has over your hand when handling them from the ground. This is particularly important with young horses without much handling experience and those who are known to be a little pushy in their character. If a horse realises your hand is ‘soft’ and yields to their influence they may start trying to influence the rest of your body to move and this can become a safety concern as they encroach on your personal space.

Watch this quick video tip for what to watch out for and how to handle any hand pushing behaviour.
