An excerpt from "Your Foal: Essential Training for the Young Horse":
To sack out your horse, tour your barn and surroundings, picking up buckets of objects, objects that range on the scariness scale from "probably not scary" to "guaranteed to scare." A hoof pick is probably not going to scare your horse, a crinkly-sounding plastic bag probably will. Be sure to grab the obvious like a brush, feed bucket, saddle blanket, lariat, lunge whip, bell boots, halter, lead rope, bridle, etc. – but you may also want to get creative, placing a rock or two in a coffee can, tying two horseshoes together and so on.
