My horse used to do this to me. I would get a bucket of grain and shake it and usually they will come trotting to you. When the come, just give them a bite of grain so they don't get sick and you reward them for coming to you. Sometimes just hold out an apple or carrot and they come.

I would be cautious about going into a field with many horses with a bucket of feed as you may risk being trampled. I would tack some treats or some feed in a pocket out with you and persist with approaching the horse in a calm manner, avoiding staring directly into its eyes, which is regarded as a threat. Don't approach the horse from the rear but rather from the side. If it wears a head collar then attach a small length of rope from it so that it it easy to grab when you get near enough. If they are in a field with many others, if possible get all the others in first and then get in the one you have left til last, they are usually keen to come in then. When they come in make sure they get something nice, like hay, and are not always ridden or worked immediately. Try and remain calm and persist in approaching the horse.

All you have to do is go down the hill, away from the stable, make a right turn and enter the paddock. All of the hores you can ride are in there, including the foals. Hope this helps! :)

Yes, it's called free lunging. It is easiest when you have a round pen, that way you can correct the horse easily if he does something disrespectful. If you do not have a round pen available, a small paddock or pasture would be preferable to a large ring, where the horse could run far enough away to escape pressure.

Horses have two main instincts when they are faced with a situation that they find frightening. One is fright. This when the horse runs away from the threat, by either spooking or simply getting away from the thing scaring it. The other is fight. This is when the horse stays and tackles the thing it is frightened of head on. It often bucks or rears when it sees what is scaring it.

A horse's first instinct is to run. "Flight before fight." He will try to get away from any scary situation, for instance, if a bee stings him while the horse is tied, he will suck back. If he sees a "scary" rock on a trail ride, he may not run, but he will shy away from it. If there is a threatening animal in his paddock, he will not run up to it and bite and kick, but run.

yes horse are very hard to catch depending on attitude. some horse just stand still some bite and kick good luch. Some other ways to catch a horse are if you get a bucket of oats, grain and treats. when you have your halter, hid it behind your back so that he can't see it. Call the horse and shake that grain bucket. once he comes, let him sniff the grain, and the slip the lead rope around his neck so he can't run away, then put the halter on. Don't give him a treat until after, so he knows once he has the halter on he gets rewards, not before. Be quiet and gentle. Also try some trust activities, it worked wonders when my horse wouldn't catch. Remember never to let your horse get away with it. :)

The safest way to move a horse depends on where your moving it to - if you are just moving your horse to another stall or a paddock, just fasten on a lead - rein onto the horses halter and away you go. If you are moving the horse in a trailer, it is easiest to take a horse blanket with a hood and fasten it on the horses, attach the lead - rein to the halter or harness, and thread the rein through a loop or notch on the trailer wall. Don't forget to put on the special, protective horse boots if your horse gets frightened easily!

I recommend that when you are taking your horse out, then to place the other horse where your field gate swings in, forcing the horse to walk backwards and away from you and your horse. ( I have had the same problem and this method always seems to work for me. ) I hope this helped. Good luck :)

I would choose a car because a horse might get put down but a car doesnt and a car is more faster than a horse and u cant take a horse into the city.well u can but it will be extremly weird I would choose a horse because a car can break down and doesn't listen to you where a horse does. my horses listen to me and when i get mad i go down the paddock call them and ride my madness away. Overall: a car is better. That's why they are the primary source of transportation today

Yes. you can Catch it, defeat it, or run away.

A horse that's farther away.

The horse is taken away from Albert, brought back, and taken away again :(

Answer 1:you need a stall if you get really bad weather. If you don't, than your horse can stay in the pasture or paddockAnswer 2:Actually, you do not need to stall the horse. Stalls aren't very good, because the ammonia from their waste and carbon dioxide gets in the lungs, and horse's get stressed in small places, because they are very clostrophobic.However, they should have a run-in facing away from the most common direction of the wind.

Horses are fight or flight animals. When faced with a potentially dangerous situation, the horses first instinct is to get away, and fast. When you fall off, although it often can't be helped, the horse will often feel that they have to remove themselves from the situation, as an attempt to preserve their life. In the wild, if they don't leave, they will most often die. It all comes down to your relationship with your horse, and it's personality, although even the quietest horses will run away if scared enough. It's basic instinct, and the only way to reduce the chances of your horse leaving when you fall off it to create a bond with him, by spending time with him in the paddock, and understanding him.

In order to get a horse to know you, you must feed the horse every day, pat it, brush it, ride it, wash it (although some horses may not like this), rug it during cold nights or cold days and even rainy days if your rug is waterproof and this should help your horse to love you more. If your horse runs away from you and you can't catch it, if it hasn't been in that environment for very long this is usually normal. After a week or so it should calm down and it should be easier for you to catch it. You shouldn't give up when trying to catch your horse though. It helps as you get nearer to the horse, don't look at it in the eye, look at something on the ground or past it but not in its eyes.

The way you get a horses attention will depend on the situation you are in with the horse. If the horse is ignoring you while it's in the stall or is asleep, it is best to softly say it's name or give a low whistle. If the horse does not respond begin to make increasingly louder noises until it turns to face you. If you are out in the paddock or field with the horse you can call, sing, talk, or just about anything else. If the horse is alone in the filed you can take a tiny amount of feed or a treat in with you to get them to come to you, but never do this with more than one horse in the paddock or field as you could get run over or caught in a fight. If you are riding the horse a quick half halt should get it's attention, if not lightly jiggle the reins or very gently bump it's sides with your calves to get it to pay better attention. If you are riding and the horse is running away with you and not stopping pull on one rein and try to circle the horse until it has to stop, or alternate pulling on each rein for a few seconds before switching to the next rein.

A maverick horse is an unbranded range horse. It often has been taken away from its mother and is a show horse.

This depends on what you are doing with the horse at that particular moment.When attempting to catch a horse you should have trained it to come to you by command, however if the horse is buddy sour or feels threatened you will need to either have the other horse removed first or place your horse where it cannot get to it's friend and work on making him ore independent of it's horse friends, you can do that by following the method listed farther down. If you are already leading the horse, make sure it has a well fitted halter and strong lead rope. When it tries to run off quickly make the horse circle and move away from it's friend. You will have to do this as many times as it takes to get the point across that he is not allowed to run off while being lead. When you circle the horse make sure you circle him in a direction that leads away from the other horse, as you come out of the circle either continue in the direction you were headed or if that direction leads towards the other horse lead him away from that direction. This will also apply to under saddle work as well. The horse may only continue forward towards it's friend once it is behaving calmly and not trying to run off.

After it is fenced, or the horse may run away.

The horse tail helps to keep away flies.

run away or turn away from you ready to kick

Yes. You can either catch it, battle and defeat it, or run away.

If you have a horse that is a problem to catch there are a couple of things you can do. If at all possible keep him by himself if he shares a pasture with other horses. The ideal would be to put her in a smaller paddock where she has a common fence line with her friends. When she has a much smaller enclosure she will find out very fast that she can't avoid you. The larger the enclosure the more she can run you around.A horse with a halter can be much easier to catch. But if you opt for this you must not use a nylon halter. Nylon halters won't break and your horse could get it caught on something and injure herself. There are 'break-away' halters that will snap if much pressure is put on them. Or a leather halter will be safer because leather will snap or break with very little pressure also.And last, try not to get angry. Remain calm even if you don't feel it. Always praise her when she lets you approach and give her a treat. Most horses can't resist a kind word and a snack.
