Episode 192- Forward is a DIRECTION, not a speed.

Forward is a direction, not a speed.
Why is this an important statement?
As I coach riders, I often see horses who look wobbly on straight lines. Some even appear to be walking a tight rope. What causes this?
I see this as a question in the horse’s mind that is being expressed in their body.
It is possible that making a simple change to viewing ‘forward’ as a direction that you guide your horse will greatly improve your communication AND relationship with your horse.
