Problem Solving Starts with the Mind
The horse's mind is so important in having a successful ride. Scott works with many riders of all disciplines and he has found that the biggest thing is the misconception that we feel that we need our horses to do.
Most riders feel that the horse is resistant or defiant to what we are asking, but really the problem is that they are in a higher energy state of mind. When you put the horse in a more relaxed state of mind, you are going to get a horse to want to perform for you.
It's a lot easier than you think to get your horse in that more relaxed state of mind, take a look at Scott's quick tip in the video above to see how to open the line of communication between you and your horse.
