We avoid hand feeding treats as Apaché can get a bit food aggressive and I need to keep it safe for the kids... We always give him all his treats and feed at the end of a grooming/handling/riding session before we set him loose. He sometimes comes galloping to us but sometimes we walk to get him. He has always been an easy catch though!! I get the best result from him when I’m not in a rush as then I get the chance to have him come to me a bit more. If I go pick poo in the paddock he comes over to say hello... If I go to say hello to his paddock mates he will definitely come running ahaha. The more I’m doing with him with gentle pressure and release, the better a response I get... like the more invested and interested in the relationship he becomes.
