The main reason why Aspire Equestrian programmes for non-horse owners are based on horse share/loan is to capture the most important and unique element of equestrian sport – the relationship between the two athletes. Making time to groom, tack up, work in-hand, get to know each other make a big difference in how riders learn and communicate with the horse during ridden training.
Some horses love attention, some prefer less of it, some learn very quickly, some need more time. Here is one who loves his interactions 🙂
What’s your “preparation for training” routine? If you don’t have your own horse, do you get to spend some time with your lesson horse?
