What are some good bonding exercises I can do with my horse this summer?
What is butt tag? @ikescepanski
if you are in a group with very melo horses you can play butt tag
i love riding bareback but mainly walking and a little trotting, hanging out with her in her stall or pasture, grooming, grazing, and playing with her in the lunge pen
Anything that has you and your horse being happy together is perfect. I normally just go and groom my horse while talking to him about my day. He loves to listen to me. 😂😂
Grooming, ground work (lunging), tricks and mostly spending a lot of time together. Hope you get to know your horse better! :)
Any time spent with your horse is considered bonding.
-grooming
-grazing
-lunging
-teaching tricks
-trail ride
-take them on a walk just as if they were a dog, horses are curious animals and love getting to see new places especially if it's with their owner
-you can sit in the paddock or sit by their stall. While you do this you can talk to them or you can even just read a book or have a lunch or just listen to music. They like when you buy their side.
