Have you ever thought that your horse is being uncooperative if he picks up the wrong lead, comes above the bit in transitions, or ignores your leg?
Often the problem isn’t disobedience on your horse’s part. Sometimes your horse seems unwilling simply because your aids are jumbled, confusing, or unclear.
Because the aids are unclear, he has to try to figure out what you really want. And if he chooses the wrong thing, it’s natural to think he’s being uncooperative or disobedient.
Plus it can get very confusing when you hear a lot of different things from different trainers. And if YOU’RE confused, you can be sure your horse is confused.
