Mental & behavioral issues

As a rider you might have to deal with a mental issue or a behavioral issue during riding, such as:

  • Natural asymmetryAlertness
  • Nervousness
  • Bad attitude
  • Ears flat when doing a specific exercise
  • Protesting
  • Aggression
  • Panicking
  • Striking
  • Bucking
  • Rearing

Possible causes

It could be the imbalance of the horse, caused by natural asymmetry:

It could be lack of leadership:

It could be misunderstanding between rider and horse

It could be that your horse is not motivated to work with you:

It could be that the horse’s natural needs are not met:

It could be that you use too much, too long, sudden or steady pressure:

What if you tried everything?

What if you consulted the vet, the dentist, the farrier, different kinds of instructors, different kind of (natural horsemanship) methods, techniques, tools and it’s still not easy to ride your horse? 

A lot of riders face the problems mentioned above when they ride. Sometimes it seems that people enjoy grooming their horse much more than actually riding.

The ‘attitude’ issues and ‘behavioural’ problems doesn’t always come from lack of leadership. They can also arise out of physical discomfort due to natural asymmetry, such as back problems an straining injuries.
