Have you ever said, “Well, moving forward, let’s __________ .”
You let go of anything that holds you back. You look to what you want to create next. You focus on progress, a move in a positive direction. Roadblocks are released and all is right in your world once again.
Don’t you love that feeling?
The same is true for your horse whether you are on the ground or on his back. For all he does, he needs to move forward. Forward motion means energy. Without energy, you have nothing to build on.
The forward motion process has two steps. The first is to think energetically for the sake of creating motion to work with. The second is to ask your horse to move his feet.
When you are having a challenge with your horse consider how to create forward motion as the next step.
