Most riders and horses "go through the motions" and tolerate each other with a sense of "surviving the ride." Instead why not encourage your horse to learn how to offer a "try" rather than a "why should I?" mental attitude. The physical actions your horse displays are a reflection of his mental and emotional state. By treating each horse as an individual and assessing his level of experience, trust, respect and past and we can then work WITH him in order to gain his trust and respect to achieve a quality partnership.
