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!
