Fear ends where knowledge begins.
Horses are going to make mistakes. Mistakes are required to get to the right answer. The yes answer for the horse is a process of elimination.
Our job when the horse gets the
correct answer is to immediately release all pressure by dropping the reins, removing our legs, putting slack in the lead rope or if starting a horse, walking to the far side of the round pen.
Pet your horse and say “good job”!
Enjoy your horses!
