When Things Go Wrong
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.
