Stay Safe Working with Horses

Stay Safe With Horses helps educate handlers in ground safety around horses.

Designed for youth and adults who are new to handling horses, the interactive module shows how to safely catch, halter and release a horse in a pen or stall and in the paddock.

This easy-to-use tool can be completed in about 20 minutes and provides safety tips about horse behavior (watch horses’ ears to check their mood), and simple ways to prevent accidents (hook the lead rope over a horse’s neck before haltering).
