“Megan has a brand-new horse, and she’s having trouble bonding with him. She’s starting to lose interest in riding,” Richard says. “Megan needs to realize that this horse needs to be like a best friend. She can’t blame him for his reactionary, sensitive attitude. She needs to find a way to make him a good friend – someone she’d like to be around all the time.”

Richard suggests a steady routine to help Megan with her situation:

  • Catch your horse’s eye
  • Release endorphins – the “feel good” hormones in every animal; in a horse, you can rub his ears, poll and cheeks
  • Halter your horse
  • Get your horse in “herd mode”
