We believe that the lessons we learn in the barn effect every area of our lives, and the converse is also true. Over the years, we’ve seen not only many successful relationships between horse and rider, but also many unsuccessful ones. What determines the success or failure of the relationship is not primarily the horse’s genetics or past, but the rider’s character and knowledge.
Patience and consistency are two of the most important things to embody when working with your horse. Remember that he wants to say yes, he just doesn’t speak your language yet.
