How many chances should we give our horses to get it right? Let's reverse the question. How many chances should our horses give us? .
Both are valid questions. Often we have horses that are too much, too little, too fast, not athletic enough, ect... sometimes we don't give our horses the chance to prove themselves. We look only at their flaws and ignore the amazing horse they can become if we give them the chance. Or maybe the horse isn't doing what you want. You've tried "everything" to help them without success. But you ignore the cause of the problem, which is likely you. You will give your horse one more chance, but they'll fail because it's up to you to set them up for success. . .
How many chances should our horses give us? Our horses give us a new chance every day to prove to them that we can be a leader, keep them safe and not let them break the rules. They give us so many chances when we make mistakes with ground work or under saddle. They give us so many chances to prove these things to them... yet we fail. Our egos fail them. Our dedication to extreme timelines fail them. Our impatient attitudes fail them. .
Stop telling then you're going to give them one more chance. Instead change your outlook and be the strength your horse needs to be successful for you.
