How beautiful and successful to go through the brood

Serious tournaments involve broods the day before the competition (and sometimes after, for example, between cross-country and show jumping in eventing). Your task is to take the horse in a straight line at a trot so that judges can make a conclusion about his health and readiness for the loads by the movements of your four-legged partner. And even if your horse is really healthy, it still does not guarantee successful passage of the test.

Karl Hester Tips on Horse Training

Tip: It’s always nice to discover your horse’s talent, for example, for flying free movements, but do not dwell on this. Focus on what doesn’t work out so well.

Think ahead
I recommend taking a whip with you, but only as a means of correcting and clarifying your requests, but Continue reading
