As always just bring with them is a bonding experience. But also try halter games like backing around a corner or having them yield their hindquarters in a perfect circle. Also play whoa on command. I love playing halter games. You always find their personalities when you do!

I always enjoy taking Hippy in the school and setting him free from his lead rope. Then I'll show him all sorts of things he won't usually see like exercise balls, poles etc and see what he enjoys! He seems really comfortable just ambling about and exploring, and also sticks close by so it's a good chance for us to get to know each other better :)
You should try it too!
Good luck

Spend time with him and be a leader. What works for me is just hanging out, grooming and not expecting too much for the first few days. You don't give much info here, like age, training, what you want to do with the horse, Is this your first horse?

The time it takes to develop a relationship with a horse depends on the horse. Some horses attach quickly...some take more time...and some never give a hoot.

No it's my second!! He does get attached quite quickly, he's really friendly.
