I have started doing tricks and liberaty work with my horse and our bond has grown so much. Today he has started jumping by just following me! Also, just being with them regualrry creates a bond
We spend a lot of time on the ground - grooming is great too. We play games with treats and do lots of stretching too. I think just being around & loving them helps build a strong sense of trust for sure. I wish I could spend all day every day with them!
