Teaching a Foal to Follow Small Feels Before Leading
Teaching a foal to lead takes patience and can start in very small ways to get a soft and willing response.
For foal handling, we recommend the following tools:
- Foal handling line - you'll start with this before the foal halter and eventually use it in combination with the halter
- Foal Hybrid Halter - features a figure 8 design with a floating ring that minimizes the risk of flip over
- Slim Stick - (optional) for the foal that is mouthy or wants to jump on you
- Sara Johnson
