Just because a horse responds to something does not mean that he is afraid. We often remove the natural lightness from our horse by accidentally making him dull and unresponsive. In this video, I’m going to talk about how you can tell the difference between a horse that is responsive vs. reactive.

Now, this has just as much to do with your horse’s mental state as it does your approach. When you know and understand these things, it puts you in a position where you can start helping your horse to become more mentally sound. Now because of this, I have developed a list that will tell you if your horse is where he needs to be mentally.
