Sadie Beech, Horse Agility Accredited Trainer, tells us why we need to check out the small stuff!!
‘FOUNDATION TRAINING SHOULD LOOK BORING.
Let me expand on that…
Foundation training is the very basic knowledge that you and your horse need to know to communicate well together. It is what you will base everything you teach your horse on. It is the simple, not-so-very exciting, methodically drip fed things that take time to build, which lead to good horsemanship habits in yourself and your horse. It may not look exciting on a day-to-day basis, but when you have perfected it and you and your horse are a well-connected team, it looks amazing!
So, gaze in amazement at all the super inspirational stuff you see people doing, like galloping bareback along the beach, doing flying lead changes bridless and liberty routines that leave you catching flies, but appreciate the small things you see in others and yourself – the little things that you know are what are good for you, your horse and the foundation you share together.’
