Sample Our Newsletter From "Why Does My Horse Still Have This Problem," Issue 11, part 2 of our FREE monthly newsletter
Re: problems horses
It's your job to be consistent simply because horses become mirror images of their owners. Let's say you buy a horse and the horse pulls on the bit like he's trying to rip your arms out of their sockets. Well, you can blame the previous owner for that behavior for only about three months. That's it. Three months. After that, it's your fault because three months is enough time to change your horse if you're being consistent and truly working toward fixing the issue at hand. The other guy might have created the problem, but four months later you've either allowed the problem to continue - or you don't know how to fix it. Obviously something you're doing isn't fixing the problem. Does this sound like you? Ask yourself: What am I doing to allow this problem to continue?
Every rider longs for more time in the saddle - more time to improve various riding skills, work through common fears and obstacles, and really enjoy that special horse/rider companionship. Enhance your riding experience with easygoing encouragement from clinician and author Jessica Jahiel.
