Chicken about Chickens
Okay, long story short, I have to move my horse to my trainer's barn. There is a sizeable population of chickens roaming free, sometimes in the riding arena. My horse is a tad shy of chickens to put it nicely. Does anyone have any tips on how to introduce him to them so he doesn't have himself a heart attack? He's currently recovering from an illness, so stress is the last thing he needs. I'm thinking approach and retreat would work here, but open to suggestions.
You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
