  • Dominance
  • look at that crown this horse is so dominant he wont listen to a word i say
  • Approach
  • hey kid you should never approach a horse from the back or front side those are their blind spots
  • Haltering
  • Wow I guess he doesn't want to be haltered!!
  • dominace is when one horse feels it is superior and it's what horses establish within  proximity of other horses or people
  • Safe Positioning
  • when approaching a horse you should know where their blindspots are located which is directly in front of the horse right between their eyes and directly behind them.  You need to be sure to not approach a horse from their blindspot.  The safest location to approach a horse is their shoulder.   
  • Kicking Range
  • When starting to halter a horse there are a lot of different ways.  It depends a little on how tall you are and how big the horse is.  If you can safely reach across the horses neck you would want to take the halter and safely and quickly slide the halter up on the horses nose pull it up snuggly then go ahead and fasten the halter quickly. Should be fastened across brow band and under the jaw.
  • Sheltering
  • You should have your equipment properly adjusted before you approach the horse so you don't put yourself in a bad position.  You should never lead your horse and allow your horse to get left behind.  This could be entering a potentially dangerous situation.  Always be on the left side of the horse.
  • I can't believe that guy was in the wrong position
  • The most dangerous place to stand is a foot behind the horses rear because when they kick they will have full force when hitting a person.
  • I'll bet your kicking range is pretty wide!
  • Facilities should be safe and provide shelter and a place to exercise.  Housing can be in the form of a simple shed to a fancy stall.  Bedding can include dirt, straw, wood or paper shavings,  Pasture areas and perimeter fencing should include smooth wire, cable, mesh, or wood posts and rails or a combination of these.  Most importantly housing should be kept free from trash and cleaned daily. 
  • I wonder if he'd go in a shelter?
