What do you do with your riders that teaches them what they may not know... they do not know, about the basics of controlling what they are doing with their horses? Check out these training exercises that can be used with ground poles or built higher as the rider gains more control.

"Brilliant exercises for those with little equipment and particularly for those who are on their own. You just need to set the four poles out before you get on, then all the exercises can be ridden without changing anything. You can get a good couple of 40 min schooling sessions out of these and there is something here suitable for every horse, from wobbly baby to 4* hopeful. I generally set them out so that the center of each pole lies on a 20m circle with a pole at each of the four compass points (or 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock if you prefer!), but you can adjust the diameter according to your arena size and the level of schooling of your horse"

Riding = Better Learners

The CDC & The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that children and adolescents ages 6 to 17 years do 60 minutes or more of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity daily. Students who are physically active tend to have better grades, school attendance, cognitive performance (e.g., memory), and classroom behaviors (e.g., on-task behavior).

For your consideration:
Finishing Touch, 14yo, 16h TB Mare by Blacktie Affair
“Ready” is so sweet! She is very nicely broke on the flat and is super comfortable. She has had extensive dressage training and has good lateral work and adjustability. She jumps around 2’6” and has auto changes. Very comfortable. Excellent ground manners. PM for pricing, additional photos, video.

For your consideration:
Moorland's Gold - 8yo, 17h, Hanoverian Gelding
Gold is a very kind teacher. Jumps around 2’6” easily, with AUTO CHANGES. He is very comfortable and has excellent manners. Easy to stay with in the air. Everyone loves him! Does not need a regular program; he’s the same whether he’s ridden every day or once a week. Although he is tall, he is not wide, so he will fit most riders. PM for pricing.

"Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do." - Shaquille O’Neal

Tamarack Hill Farm

Tamarack Hill Farm

One of the biggest reasons, I do suspect, that so many green riders wind up with green horses that may scare them, or that at any rate prevent them from learning the way to apply correct aids, is because so many riders WILL-NOT-BUY an older horse.

Here is Bold Minstrel at 16. In his prime, at the height of his powers, yet how many people do you know who would buy a 16 year old horse?

They will say things like, "I want an investment." As if investing is only about money, and not an investment in learning how to ride, or in safety, or in the sense of security while learning that can come from an older, wiser, steadier horse..

So when I hear that cost is a prohibiting factor in finding a suitable horse which knows the deal, and can help a green rider figure out "which buttons to push," I always suspect that those are riders who automatically carry some type of prejudice against "investing" in an older horse. The older, been there, done that horse is a great investment, but not so much in terms of getting a later financial return, so much as in investing in the process of giving he young or green rider the chance to learn correct basics that will last them all their riding years.

Most green riders who struggle with equally green horses are not learning correct basics. They are "investing" in the wrong piece of the riding puzzle.

Coming To Grips With Failure: Learn From Bears' Kicker Cody Parkey

Some good lessons that work in riding, too.

like a lot of NFL fans, I was fully invested when the Bears kicker, Cody Parkey, stepped out onto the field with 10 seconds left in the game. The Bears, down 16-15, were one seemingly routine 43-yard Parkey kick away from their first playoff win since 2011.
