A large part of building confidence and partnership in our horses, is developing their responsibilities. Just like a growing child takes on responsibilities as they grow, to prepare them for adulthood, so to do our horses.
This girl holds responsibility by being saddled at liberty, and lining up to the mounting block. Performing these simple tasks at liberty also allow her to show me ‘I’m not ok’ or ‘I’m uncomfortable’ by walking away - this gives me vital information On where she needs support, which helps me not go to fast for the individual horses.
