You’ve likely heard Clinton say that when it comes to training horses consistency is your greatest ally and inconsistency is your greatest enemy. You’ll get the best results with your horse if you work with him five or six days in a row. However, if you’re human, you’re bound to have to miss at least a few days of consistent training here or there. The problem with giving your horse gaps between training sessions is that he develops what Clinton refers to as “Mondayitis.” Let’s say you rode your horse on Thursday and didn’t get back out to the barn until Monday. When you go to ride on Monday, your horse will not be tuned in to you like he was before he had time off. That’s very similar to what many of us are like on Mondays – we’re still recovering from the weekend and our full attention isn’t on work.
The September No Worries Club video lesson is all about how to deal with “Mondayitis” and how you can best bring your horse back to work so you can continue to make progress.
