How to Catch a Horse and Recognizing the Blind Spots

Horse training is no easy task, but learning about their blind spots and how to catch a horse are two great starting points.

When approaching a horse from the rear, realize that when you are directly behind him, he can't see you. Zipper's prominent eye allows him to see me taking this photo as I approach seven-eighths rear. His ears are tuned back to me and he is experienced enough to know there is nothing to fear and yet, out of reflex, he still takes on step forward with his right hind.
