In horse training we often have to be creative if we encounter resistance, fear, frustration or if something else is just so much more reinforcing than you. You have to be even more creative, if you want to come up with a force free and horse friendly training solution. Here are some tips that can help you become creative.
Occupy your conscious
Occupy your conscious so your unconscious can come up with a solution. Do something completely different. Go draw a horse or colour a colouring sheet. I made one for you, see the download at the bottom of the page.
Listen to yourself
Talk your training problems over with a good friend. When you hear yourself talk you can put things in perspective and come up with a solution.
If that doesn’t work, your friend might have a solution for you or you can ask yourself: ‘What advise would I give if it wasn’t me, but a friend with this problem with her horse?’
If you are not looking to solve a particular training problem, just download my colouring sheet and relax. Have some fun.
I would really appreciate if you upload your colouring sheet and show it to me. You can send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org or put a link in the comments below. I’m looking forward to seeing your creativity!

Good insights! I work in an arts and crafts store and we are selling gobs of adult coloring books. I have serious art training but love coloring books too (Prismacolor pencils are the acknowledged BEST color pencil for this an other artistic pursuits). Love your drawing! I also have some freebee coloring pages here: http://www.swordwhale.com/coloring-pages.html
Thank you. Since you have a horse colouring sheet I allow the link. Check it out people!

There are several coloring sheets there, some are shaded, so when you color over top, you get a more rendered look. Have fun! PS, this is a great site, carry on!
