My horse if very head shy and doesn't like the sound of Velcro ripping.
Last time I was out to see him, I spend a long time desensitizing him to his fly mask and the sound of the Velcro. I managed to get the fly mask on. Thank goodness because the sun was wreaking havoc on his bald face (the mask has a long nose and UV protection)!
This afternoon, I'm heading out to work with him and I'm wondering what's the best way to remove the mask. Is it dangerous to remove it on the cross ties? I can just picture him jerking his head up and hurting himself. Shall I put him in a stall and do it or would it be best to take him out to the ring where we worked on desensitization.
Thanks so much:)
