How To Feed An Impatient Horse

Feeding the Impatient Horse

Be prepared to put in the time and effort. Training horses isn’t always convenient, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Clinton Anderson shares a good strategy for combatting a rude, impatient horse.

So instead, put the grain in front of their stall door and leave. You can come back in an hour or two and feed when they’re calm and relaxed.

In time, your horse will realize they only get fed when they’re quiet and patient. You may have to do maintenance training every once in a while, but eventually they can eat when everyone else does.
