Work with this horse with no expectation that he 'should' trust you because of your previous history. It will take time. But you can develop a new relationship with this horse ... and help him heal from any past trauma.
Ok thanks :) ill keep working with him an lets hope he does come to trust me again. And ill be thankful he never has to return to racing. Posted via Mobile Device
