Training a foal is no child's play! It can be a fascinating experience, but it requires the correct mixture of experience, horse knowledge and intuitive feeling.
Correct training follows from knowledge of how horses develop physically, mentally, and behaviorally. A horse that has been treated incorrectly as a foal may never be reliable. It may be prone to suspicion and panic reactions throughout its entire life.
A well-trained foal is much easier to back, and its first hack will be a less risky undertaking. In addition to the essential basic knowledge, the author offers tips and suggestions to ensure the successful training of your foal: imprint training, first learning steps, learning with mother, weaning the foal, problems of "adolescence", obedience and discipline, first gymnastic exercises, initial backing.
Renate Ettl is a horse therapist and trainer of Western riders. She lives in the south of Germany.
