Keeping the "Yes" Shining Through

In this video set, we will look at how to keep our training centred around the horse's choice - how to ask "yes" questions, and how this affects both our own and our horse's internal landscapes. Through every step of the training: starting at liberty, introducing the tools, and progressing through the exercises on the ground, and into riding - we can listen and respond to our horse's feedback by changing our approach and fine-slicing our steps so that we can make it easier for our horse to give us an enthusiastic yes to the connection and conversation.
