Your horse may dread being caught because he knows he is about to face an hour of work. Change his opinion of it by catching him frequently to do equine massage therapy. Long, deep strokes (over fleshy areas such as the neck) are very soothing for them. Watch for signs of release such as dropping the head, sighing, passing gas, yawning, soft snorting, and especially chewing of the mouth. For a week, try catching your horse multiple times a day for a quick 5 minute massage.
