Let it sink in

Just a short one on this topic I've been coming across quite often lately: Give the horse time to think and  to digest something. I often find humans to want to go on quickly after achieving a good response by their horse. Don't. Wait until your horse tells you that he has got it: He will yawn, lower his head, chew, lick his lips or loosen up. Also, it can help to not practice a task all over again, day after day. Give your horse a break of a few days and then try again. The progress you can achieve by just giving him some time can be astonishing. I've had horses that were really troubled when we tried a new maneuver. After one week of doing nothing related they were did it almost perfectly.
