Lightness comes from the horses mind.
Lightness can’t be demanded, it can’t be coerced, it can’t be manipulated.
Lightness comes from the horses desire to be in partnership with you.
It comes from the horse not only understanding what you are asking, but having a great willingness to do what you are asking.
Lightness is the horse meeting you half way.
Lightness is the horse putting his body in a position of balance to do what you are asking - without you asking him to do it.
Much like a person always needing to be ‘asked’ to do things, A horse that needs to be asked or told where to be or how to be there, will only ever perform with the dullness of resentment, where a horse with desire shines in their movement.
A horse that becomes a true partner is light, willing, balanced.
Create an unstoppable desire and motivation in your horse
