How would you advise me to teach my new horse that she has to go where I want her to go?
when you ask to go in a certain direction and your horse doesn't obay I would stop her in her tracks, back her up a few steps and count aloud to 10 and then ask her again and keep repeating until she listens to what you're asking her to do but make sure you are giving her the right cues before you do this hope this helps!
How do I get my horse to relax more?
My mare is a very hot horse so I found the best way to keep her relax is to make sure I'm relaxed and to make sure that I'm not pulling on her face all the time as she gets worked up but all horses are different so you just have to figure out their little quirks and each horse responds differently. Hope that helps
Does anyone have any tips on how to remain calm before a race or a show?
Hi Alexa! I had the same problem, I would always work myself up before a show which would create tension between me and my horse so I found what helped me get past my anxiety it to just pretend nobody is there and drown all outside noise out also I found that talking to people really helps distract me and let out my nervousness. Hope that helps!
