Witchcraft, wizards, magic dust and Your Horse?
Wouldn’t it be nice …… if after you did all your basic training work, some lovely fairy came along and sprinkled fairy dust on your horse?
Magically, it has a majestic top-line and your level-headed equine partner is always ready for any request ….Perfect!
Ahhh…. goodbye to the Fairy and welcome back into the real world …. Noooooo!
Ha ha …..if there were a magic potion, it’s ingredients would be patience, focus and perseverance!
This OTHER type of (non magic) potion sometimes means you are going solo and working on all the little details, getting to know your horse inside out and:
Avoiding shortcuts and working on developing long-lasting aids, that are then accessible in any situation
Avoiding the wear and tear, working on a light communication with balance and ease
Going into the riding arena every day with short light sessions, gives your horse confidence and pride….and time to develop and understand your requests.
‘Magically” after this work, your horse DOES start to glow and travel with ease, with a lovely rounded topline!
Taking the time to do this is sometimes especially difficult in the horse community, as we are often judged not by the soundness of our horse, but the ribbons that we collect.
Be your own Fairy Godmother to your horse- and reap the rewards!
