I have just watch the documentary on Buck Brannaman and will be writing a full review shortly.   In the meantime, I came across an article that included these these five tips that are well worth considering for every rider.

 

1. Don’t intimidate.  You may temporarily intimidate a horse into good performance, but intimidation ultimately leads to fear, which is paralyzing.

 

2. Loosen the reins.

 

3. Bribery doesn’t work. “All it does is make is make a contemptuous, spoiled horse”

 

4. Tolerate mistakes. “You have to allow the horse to make mistakes. The horse will learn from mistakes no different from a human. You can’t get to where he dreads making mistakes for fear of what’s going to happen after he does.”

 

5. Acknowledge your own faults.

 

More to come...
