Trainer’s Tip Tuesday
Stop worrying about what your horse’s “full potential” is. Who determines full potential? A human? Each human will have a different opinion. The only party in the horse / human relationship that cares about “full potential” is the human. The horse only cares about being a horse. I have never seen a horse wake up and wish they were the highest jumper or the best at spinning (they aren’t practicing out in the pasture…). The horse cares about being a horse…friends, food and safety. We will get farther with our horse by throwing “full potential” out the window. Instead of worrying about what the max is that you can accomplish with your horse, enjoy each step and relish the small accomplishments. In the end you will get farther with your horse because you take the pressure off both you and your horse. Your horse will thank you.
