Even though I applied my new knowledge, he's still aggressive when I try to catch him in his stall. I just watched your video "Catch a horse in the stall" which was very informative.
For months, I have been letting an employee put his halter on . I have NOT gone in his stall to halter him myself. I think he is going to lunge or bite me, he acts so pissed off. ( I guess he is training me … ha ha ha ) When I saw your video, you went right into the stall. I guess that should be my first move? I really want to be able to do this myself, of course. ( For years I used to easily halter him, all of a sudden that has changed?)
Now.... the new world of Covid 19. I will only be able to see my horse on May 4th. Have not seen him in 6 weeks. How do you suggest I start the process of putting on his halter myself in his stall? You said, " a horse never forgets anything, " Will he still be as aggressive with me after not seeing him for 6 weeks?
Please advise me, is there incremental learning to be able to halter him in his stall? I am extremely dedicated and will do whatever it takes.
P.S. I am your biggest fan!
