Well my guy and I pretty much bonded the first day and our relationship is really strong.
But it has increased over the years with just long throrughy brushing taking naps together. This also gives you time to read his body language and him yours.
We also over come obstacles that come our way. Mind you nothing fazes him. But you get my point. Just think of the black stallion and the movies spirit. That was pretty much our beginning. He is pretty much a one owner horse.
But we still play a form of tag in the arena. He has enjoyed this from day one. I would not recommend letting most horses chase you, especailly a stallion. It is not generally for the faint of heart. He does like to gallop and stop a couple feet in front of me, then do a three sixty move in the air. That is he cue for me to go after him. But I trust him.
But in the end we have bonded so much that I can do anything. Even crack a whip around him and he will not move ( the whip dosen't touch him). This is the kind of stuff no one can teach you. All you have to do is spend the time and see what you and your horse like.
Hope this helps you with your bonding with your horse
