Polka Dot Ponies

This will most likely be just a collection of my ramblings. I ride and train horses, so there is bound to be a lot of horse stuff. But I also just like to vent and this seems the perfect place.

Who put that light switch there??

So my sister and brother-in-law were going to built a house but found one that they really liked to buy instead. My uncle said that was good because then in 2 years you won't think 'What dummy put that light switch there?' Oh yeah it was you.
Titan and I had a moment like that yesterday. I would ask him to do one thing and get a totally different response than I was looking for. I would ask him to put his haunches in and he would canter. I thought who taught him that?? Oh yeah- me.

He can figure out the subtle differences between a canter depart lead and a haunches in/half pass cue. You will just need to refine your aids first to distinguish between the two for him.

You're right. It's not the horse. It's you. *lol* Honestly, as you well know when you are training a totally green horse, things like this are very common, especially when the horse is as eager to please as Titan.
