Safely getting your horse started with balance mats!

Start with a front hoof, using the mat under one hoof at a time. Allow your horse to decide how long they would like to stand on the mat. This could be 30 seconds or 3 minutes. Remember, this should be an enjoyable experience for them. If they can’t do one hoof skip it and then come back to it later.
