Handing a young horse can be intimidating; you won’t get a second chance to make a first impression. Bryan Neubert demonstrates some techniques for catching and haltering a filly. He works first with the mother in the pen and helps the filly learn to find comfort away from her mother. Then he introduces her to the halter and prepares her for the rest of her life; learning to be caught, simulating being saddled, and developing confidence in the human. Helpful especially if you only have one young horse to work at time.
