PATTERN PLAY

Horses LOVE patterns! They live their lives based on patterns, and they learn patterns many times faster than we do. Patterns help relax a horse, energize a horse, calm a horse or excite a horse. Pick your pattern depending on what you want them to learn.

  1. While playing with the patterns, look for the horse to put in effort and then find relaxation. 

  2. Begin each pattern or play with a deep breath and a pause to really focus on your intent.

  3. REWARDS!!!

  4. Look, feel, sense your horse's response - don't blow through a "moment".  Most important when presenting new concepts but equally important when upping the ante - with speed, precision or length/distance

  5. A Million transitions!  In all four savvys and all patterns.
