Every day that you work with your horse, review the previous day’s lessons before teaching him something new. The exercises in the Method are set in a specific order to get the best results. Each exercise builds off the other; if you skip one or the horse doesn’t wholly understand how to do an exercise, you’re guaranteed to run into a roadblock later on. While there’s no shame in trying something new, realizing your horse doesn’t understand what you’re asking of him and going back a few steps, you always want to set your horse up for success. Take the time that it takes to make sure your horse understands each exercise before teaching him a new one.
