Apply strong ropes and halter
You need to use strong ropes and halter so it won’t break. In case your horse breaks the halter or ropes by rearing or pulling back then he will learn that pulling the ropes will result in releasing of pressure. You are required to teach your horse that when he pulls the pressure increases. This will lead your horse to step forward and stand quietly.
Use quick-release knot
You need to use quick-release knot on both ropes of the cross tie. Remember that the height of the rope should be levelled with the shoulders of your horse or it can even be levelled with horse’s head.
For the first few times you need to attach the cross ties loosely. Remember that it should be attached but not tied.
Stand with slacked lead rope
You should stand with your horse along with a slacked lead rope. Your horse will be allowed to move for only few steps. This step may frighten your horse so you need to confront your horse that he is safe.
Groom the young horse
You should rub and pat your foal for almost five to ten minutes when he is tied in the first training session.
You should repeat these steps and slowly increase the time he stands quietly.
