We believe that learning the Physical aspects of riding is important, and we will teach our students to sit, balance, and ride the horse at different gaits and under differing circumstances. We will teach them to ride with skill, confidence, and consideration for the comfort and ability of their mount. However, just as important, is learning to understand the Mental and Emotional state of mind of the horse. As each riding student advances in his or her training, we will teach them how to recognize the feelings and thinking of the horse. For examples, why does your horse not want to cross that stream, go over that jump, go through that gate, transition smoothly from a walk to a canter, step onto a bridge, go by that bush, or take the correct lead? The answers to those questions may be as wide and varied as the response the rider should take to the "problem." Too many riders respond to situations such as these with the "universal solution" of kicking and whipping and forcing the horse to "obey." While this may provide the desired short-term result, it may also create more long-term problems.
