In this Certified Horsemanship Association episode we chat about exercises for more advanced riders with Anne Brzesicki of MTSU, Julie Goodnight has some advice on schooling your school horses to keep them in top form and we also learn all about the Interscholastic Equestrian Association. Listen in…

The rider’s tendency to blame the horse and not consider their own contributions to the problem
Teaching riders on school horses vs their own horse
Reviews of this recording:
Horses in the Morning is awesome this morning! Loving it! Hope everyone tuned in! Julie Goodnight is talking with Christy Landwehr about different levels of understanding and how that each day (even after over 50 years in the Horse Industry) she gains a greater understanding of herself and her horses. Growing our minds, hearts & bodies has to continue throughout our career with horses if we want not to stagnate – or go backwards. SO much good stuff… love her discussion about how riders tend to place blame on their horses and not look at our own performance issues first. ROFL on her comments about how instructors and school horses interact during lessons with students. WOW!!! Love the discussion about how building confidence in riders is personal – not the same for everyone. It’s the JOB of the Instructor to create success for the horse & the rider and acknowledge the success for both horse and rider. I say this ALL the time! “YOU GOT THIS!!!”
If you missed it, you can listen to the recording at your convenience later. Take the time! It will be worth it!!!
