A student said to me: “ I have started to play with the canter by hand, but my horse is not doing it right at all. I think I am maybe not doing it right either, so maybe we should not do it at all? “
I said: “One could imagine that there is not existing right and wrong with horses? Of course we prepare the horse well physical and mental for everything we ask him for. But what you call “wrong” we could call training and what you call “right” we could call leading or dancing with the horse. Horses do not judge in right or wrong they just experience and do!… This is one of the things we can learn from them.
Best wishes to you all.
