Hang that Head
One of the biggest hurdles that I keep seeing people run into with their horses is the unpredictability of horses exploding in situations. These emotional outbursts compromise safety and performance. Too often people deal with this by looking for situational solutions. By this I mean that they see one situation at a time being the problem. The answer in training our horses to be Courageous and good athletes is much simpler than that but also more general than that. Now I said simple as most people with horses have figured out it is not necessarily easy. If we ensure that our horses FEEL GOOD, they won’t have any time to FEEL BAD by teaching them to DANGLE!
