Essays of an Equestrian

As an avid reader and equestrian I frequent a number of blogs and discussion forums. Often, the forums get a bit messy when discussing training. But yesterday I came across something that has really turned me on. It is titled “Learning Theory and Dressage” and discusses training as it relates to a horse’s ability to learn. It appears on the Ultimate Dressage Training forum.

I would love to rewrite it so I’d come off all smart, but there is no way I could do these postings justice. So instead this time I am just going to post the link and I urge everyone to give it a read. Sit down with a cup of coffee or something because it is quite interesting. Read it and draw your own conclusions as to which theory you agree with!

I applaud the posters, one and all, for one of the best entries I’ve ever seen on an internet posting forum, and it’s still growing!

Mazel tov!

The good will of the horse is like the scent of a rose. Once it is gone, it is gone forever.
