Pearls of Wisdom
“Less is more”
“The routine is no routine”
“Give treats when least expected”
“Ask” your horse how he/she is today and formulate a game plan together. Every moment you and your equine partner are together, be flexible and present. Throw out the agenda.
Intent is everything. When you are asking your horse to square up, visualize in your head where you want the feet to be. If the stretches and squaring become frustrating for you that is also true for your horse partner. In that case it’s time to switch gears and maybe just hang out and eat your lunch with him/her out in the pasture or in the stall.
