the mirror

It's been said so often, it's almost become a platitude: your horse is your mirror. A closer look reveals interesting details here too: Your horse will not be able to respond lightly if you don't ask lightly. I see this pushing and shoving all the time in the barn when you want your horse to yield to let someone pass, and instead of giving the horse pushes into the pressure. We often start with very much pressure when we ask a horse to do something. The problem: If we are rude, the horse will answer appropriately. It's our responsability to become soft and subtle in order for the horse to become the same. This does apply to groundwork and riding. So if you wonder why your horse is dull - have a look at your behavior and your attitude.
