Give Your Horse a Chance “Wait for me to catch up”

Do we need to dominate our horse or can we find a balance between effective communication, relationship & trust?

From the horse’s perspective:

  • Wait for me to catch up with what you are asking me.  I have a large body & 4 legs to coordinate so sometimes getting out of the way or moving over takes a moment for me to carefully coordinate so I don’t hurt you.
  • Wait for me to understand what you are asking before forcing me.  I’m not a piece of sports equipment, but an animal like you with feelings and often I’m scared, but want to trust you.  Show me that I can trust you.
  • Please don’t hit me when I get the wrong answer.  I’m trying to be good.  Try asking me again in another way and maybe I’ll understand better.  I want to be good and have fun with you too.
  • Let me know when I get the right answer.  I need to know that I’m good enough for you.  I love you.
