In this episode, I answer a question about using food rewards. Many people have trouble using food rewards because their horses end up getting pushy and distracted by the treats, and they end up creating bad behavior instead of rewarding good behavior. The good news is there are steps you can take to set you and your horse up for success.

In this episode I share an interview I did a while back with International dressage trainer and rider Luis Lucio of Spain. He has competed at the highest levels and has also explored and embraced natural horsemanship.
We all want our horses to be easy to ride and play with. In this episode I’ll talk about how we shouldn’t expect it to be easy to make things easy, what it means to work hard (how that’s different than being difficult), and why you need to fall in love with the process.
In this episode I’ll talk about frustration. It’s an emotion we all have experienced at some point or another. I’ll share some insights into it, I’ll talk about why we want to learn how to manage it, but I’ll also talk about how it can sometimes serve us.
