What’s the first horse keeping practice that benefits the overall health of your equine companion?
Imagine that you’ve just walked out to your barn or you’ve arrived at your boarding facility excited to spend time with your horse. She whinnies for you and as you approach her stall she tries so hard to stick her cute nose through the bars to greet you.
As you pull her out of the stall, she steps out somewhat stiff as she usually does. You don’t think anything of it because you’re use to this and you may even think it’s normal.
As equine caregivers, we often wonder if what we’re doing for our equine companions is in their best interest.
Could it be possible that your horse keeping is inferior and your equine partner is trying to tell you something? What your horse is probably trying to tell you is that you’re breaking the first rule of natural horse care.
