No more "Now"

Take out the “now” in your asking. My horse will do anything I ask him as long as I take as long as needed to keep the horse calm, trusting and willing. Remember, the horse has no agenda, only we do. Kindness goes a really long way. Be fair. Its only between you and him. There needs to be understanding on both your sides. Show him the correct answer to your question. A gentle cajole with small progresses. Take what he gives you. Ignore the wrong responses. Don't fight with him. Reward and build. Be persistent and consistent but don't try to get it all done at once . Be happy with him. You will be surprised how quickly it all goes when you take the "now" out of your training.
