School ‘Em and Fool ‘Em - Horseman's News
Horses are smart enough to know when they can chump us and when they can’t. For example, more than likely, if your horse spooked at an object when you were riding him at home, you’d immediately correct him and solve the problem. However, when we’re at a show and we’re being judged, most of us aren’t as quick to correct our horses when they do something wrong and we tend to let bad behavior slide because we don’t want to ruin our chances of winning.
