I want the horse trusting and respecting me before I ride them so it does not turn into a bronc ride. I want to be safe and make sure the horse has a good learning experience. Slow is better and the program sinks into the horse so they understand what is being asked of them. Your horse will be treated with care and respect. I want to know what your personal needs and wants are for your horse and strive to fill those needs.
