Common sense with horses


People working with and around horses need to have an understanding of horse psychology to ensure they obtain the best from the horse, with the least risk of injury. Every time humans catch a horse they use psychology, because a person’s strength is no match for that of the horse. If humans do not use superior psychology, they may find the situation reversed, where the horse actually uses the human to achieve its own objectives.
