Gaining Your Horse’s Trust
 
There is nothing worse than owning a horse that is scared of you and does not trust you. It is also dangerous because your horse could harm you if he feels that you are a threat to his safety. A horse’s trust is hard to gain and is very easy to loose. It is possible to gain a horse’s trust, but it could be a slow and tedious process. Once you have gained your horse’s trust, the benefits are endless.

The first thing that you need to remember when trying to earn a horse’s trust is to be patient. Something happened to the horse to make him not trust people and it will take time for him to feel safe around people and to trust you. When you start working with your horse, make sure that you always approach him from the left side and show him what you have in your hands so that you do not accidentally scare him.



The second thing for you to remember is to always wear tight fitting clothes. If you are wearing loose clothing, they might get caught in the wind and scare your horse, and once he is scared of you it will be very difficult to make him think that you are not going to hurt him

You also want to talk to your horse in a low, soft voice. Don’t try yelling at your horse to get his attention, you will only scare him and make things worse. When your horse begins to trust you he will start to look at you more and will begin giving you his full attention.


You also want to be around your horse as much as possible. If you can, feed your horse in the morning and evening, clean your horse’s stall (if your horse is kept in a barn), personally turn your horse out and bring him in at night. Your goal is to be around your horse as much as possible. If you are your horse’s sole caregiver, he is going to gain your trust much faster than if several different people are caring for your horse at the same time.

The benefits of having a horse that trust you are endless. Once a horse trusts you he will do almost anything that you ask of him because he knows that you would never allow anything bad to happen. This will be extremely useful when taking you horse around new things or putting him in new surroundings. Your horse will be much calmer than horses that do not trust their owners. Having a horse that trust you will also be useful on a trail ride. You may ride upon an obstacle that the horse has never seen, but if you reassure your horse that it is OK and he trusts you, he should go right over the obstacle and not think twice about it.


Once you have gained your horse’s trust, your training possibilities are endless.
