Our first lesson is * Relaxation *
Lowering the head helps to take your horse out of the "flight" mindset and also helps to engage their mind.
It is easy to carry out on the ground, in the saddle, in a halter, bridle, bitless or bitted!
Here is a step-by-step picture guide of how to lower the head whilst on the ground and when you're on your horse.
Just a couple of minutes of practising this movement each time you ride will help you to calm your horse.
Did you know that the first way we humans communicate is via our hands?
It's no different when opening a line of communication with your horse 👋🏻 - soft and gentle is key!
