Imprint training involves bonding with and training the foal immediately after it is born as well as 14 days postpartum. It does not interfere with the bonding of mare and foal, and will significantly influence the foal's trust in humans.
Robert Miller, DVM has written an excellent book on imprint training entitled Imprint Training of the Newborn Foal. In a summary of his book he states, "Imprint training makes the foal -- and later the horse -- safer, quieter, and easier to handle."
Our imprint training services include spending approximately one hour with the foal immediately after birth as well as spending approximately 30 minutes with the foal daily for 14 days following the birth. Our trainer will travel to your facilities for all imprint training sessions.
