Asked in Care of Horses
How do you get a new horse to get to know you and very attached with you?
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.
