This episode is based on one of Karen’s most popular blogs by the same name. Karen takes a look at one of the root sources of frustration and disappointment that riders often experience. She’ll take a 10,000 foot view of our core way of thinking about working with horses and the core assumptions we are making about the training process. You’ll be left with a new appreciation for your horse and something you can do starting now that can make a huge shift towards more enjoyment and better results for you and your horse!
