You likely have a list of a few things you’d like to delete from your horse’s repertoire. From rooting the reins out of your hands to biting at the lead shank to slipping a trot step into a flying change.

“In almost all training, situations, the most effective way to “delete” behaviours is to prevent them from being expressed.” Dr Andrew Mclean, internationally respected equine researcher, author.

We’re always training – there’s no neutral. I encourage my students to be mindful of each moment they spend riding, catching those little resistances and using them as a training opportunity, rather than letting them slide by under the radar. Try to interrupt the behaviour as it starts, each time, until it’s finally erased. If not, it will undoubtedly show up later under a pressure situation like a horse show.

For that the student must have a teacher who CONCENTRATES on good equitation and teaches TIMING.  And it must be combined with REALLY CLEAR THEORY/methodology.  The problem crops up more so when it is green on green.
