Terrible Twos Tuesday
Young horse need a lot of guidance. They don’t yet know what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’.
When your young horse is acting out in some way it is often them having a bit of a mental breakdown as such (once pain has been ruled out).
This language they are speaking to you needs to be broken down and it is your job to figure out where things are going wrong.
Once you have figured this out you must establish a plan that can ensure that you can lead them through this journey.
Staying calm and level headed is vital in these moments.
If you are unsure of how you need to act just sit and watch the lead horse of a herd. Watch how they keep everything together by ensuring they are at the top of the hierarchy whilst being able to make quick decisions and stay level headed in any situation.
Obviously we don’t enforce the hierarchy as a horse would but rather use training techniques instead.
Yes you are a team but a team needs a leader and the leader has to be you.
If you are having difficulties with a situation and you can’t seem to figure out where the communication break down is coming from we offer online lessons. Where you can send a video in for professional assessment and get instructional feedback from it.
Keep up the great work everyone!!
