Many riders like you aspire to achieve ambitious goals with your horse in 2020! They've set major targets at the start of this year... On January 1st, they had a true readiness to change... The truth is, many people give up on their dreams by the end of January. They start to settle. They accept mediocrity. Or they think they don't deserve better. That's because a lot of riders face one or two Big Problems at the end of January:
Problem #1: Your HorsePerhaps your horse is a sort of "difficult".
- Difficult to turn.
- Difficult to canter.
- Difficult to handle.
- Bossy, pushy, grumpy.
- Or spooky, jumpy, nervy.
Problem #2: YOU
- Too busy?
- Too many other things going on?
- You're not sure you're doing it right?
- You miss a day or two and get discouraged?
I know, making resolutions on January 1st is the easy bit... But sticking with it can be much harder!
Solution #1: Clarity
I know, when training our horse, things can get confusing. For example:
- Riding your horse doesn’t feel right, but you don’t know how to fix it.
- Or you’ve been practicing a certain routine or a concept or a technique, but you’re not sure about what to do next.
Solution #2: EffectivityWhen you are more effective with what you do, your horse will understand what you want and he will be motivated to do it, Then you feel confident, and training your horse feels exciting. You see, a lot of issues and problems with horses come from two things: It’s either misunderstanding or lack of motivation – or both. And here’s the thing:
- On the one hand, if your horse understands what you want but feels not motivated to do it, then you won’t get the job done.
- On the other hand, if your horse is motivated to work for you but doesn’t understand what you mean, you can also not make it happen.
