Episode 252: What is a finished horse?

A listener wrote in that she recently got a new trail horse, and she said, “he’s supposed to be a “super finished” trail horse.”
But he is not acting the way she imagined a finished trail horse should…

Which brings up the question: What is a finished horse?

In this episode, I explain the two most common versions of ‘finished’ and how to define them.

I also share how my view of ‘never finished’ has also positively impacted my relationship with my horses.
