Hello Emily,

When I don't know a horse, I give him time to understand who I am, and I try to understand his personality (what he likes or not, his behavior, what can frighten him ...). Once I have a better idea of what he likes or not, I manage to trust him and communicate according to his codes.
The hardest part is seeing what can frighten him. When I don't understand, I ask what happens :)
