1) Don't run when near a horse, always be calm and quiet.

2)Don't approach a horse from its back side, always approach the horse from a spot that they can see you and don't stand directly behind a horse.

3)Never sit on the ground near a horse. Always squat so that when a horse spooks you can get out of the way quickly.

4)Always tie a horse up in a quick release knot when grooming, saddling, or cleaning a horses stall.

5)Don't feed a horse by hand. Always put food of treats in a bucket first
