This is potentially my first horse ever and I want to be absolutely sure I try to cover everything necessary during these 2 weeks. Besides a PPE, and working with my trainer, can anyone suggest any other things I should do during this period?
Type of groundwork, flatwork, bonding approaches, different types of grooming - bathes, clipping, etc.? It would be great if I can get out any and all "surprises" during this period. He will be stalled during the day and pastured alone in the evening/nights. We don't want to integrate him with the barn herd until we know he is staying, but are there any other things I should try to expose him to while with him to test his temperament?
