Foal Training: Touch and Rub

In this lesson learn about desensitizing a foal with objects that move and make a noise. Also learn how to teach your foal to move away from pressure with the Touch and Rub Method exercise.

When it comes to raising foals, a lot of people make the mistake of only loving and rubbing on them and then wonder why their cute babies grow up to be 1,000-pound terrors. If you want a horse to be a respectful, safe partner, you have to prove to him that you're a knowledgeable leader and show him what is expected of him.
