It’s no secret that you make the most progress with your horse when you consistently work with him. However, if you’re human, you’re bound to have to miss at least a few days of consistent training here or there. It’s something Clinton has had to deal with, especially in the early days of his career, when he was on the road nearly every weekend.
“The problem with giving your horse gaps between training sessions is that he develops what I call ‘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,” Clinton says.
In the September 2018 No Worries Club video, “Mondayitis,” Clinton explains how to best bring your horse back to work so you can continue to make progress.
