21st September, 2015 Repeating Myself

As I keep on saying, techniques such as desensitisation, long reining, short reining,  preparation for starting such as standing on the mounting block and accustoming the horse to a bit , are all worth repeating, consolidating, maintaining, revising, er....repeating. These are all techniques where we are working on the horse's yeses and maybes.

Banksy repeating long reining but also learning to work in the rain, not to assume we'll be going the same way, going in and out of natural obstacles, and meeting cars that go shush in the water.
