When Things Go Wrong

Dressage Today - - The Clinic -

When things go wrong, try to think from your horse’s point of view. It’s fu­tile to think in hu­man terms ( He’s pulling. He’s run­ning. He’s not lis­ten­ing to my leg. He’s on the fore­hand. He’s run­ning through me.) be­cause horses usu­ally just need an ex­pla­na­tion: “You need to shift your bal­ance… you need to be more in­spired.” Think in his terms. What does he need? He needs rhythm, he needs sup­ple­ness, he needs straight­ness. He needs to un­der­stand.
